To get your truck featured in Readers' Rides, email a high-resolution photo of your truck to John.Mata@sorc.com. Send in a front 3/4 or profile shot, and make sure it's big enough. We print at a much higher resolution than a website, which means sending links to photos posted online won't necessarily work. Images should be about three megabytes. Also, include plenty of information about yourself, your truck, and your full name. If you want to get your ride noticed by posting it on Truckin' Readers' Rides Online, go to rides.truckinweb.com. Upload as many as 20 photos of your vehicle, along with a detailed description.
One For Dad
Ernie Harvey inherited his father's '97 Ford F-150, which had already been slightly customized, but it was about to be revamped in 'ol dad's honor. Ernie swapped in an '06 Expedition front clip and added a Cervini's body kit, custom paint, leather interior, and a slammed 4/6 drop. Future plans include a supercharger and airbags, but Ernie just bought a brand-new Dodge Ram, and he swears up and down that his dad’s truck will always come first.
We featured Jeremy Penland's last truck in the Readers Rides section in Volume 35 Number 5, and we were impressed with his dropped '07 GMC Sierra back then. Since that issue hit newsstands, he has traded it in for this '09 GMC Sierra 4WD. He stuck with the same sleek, black appearance, but the 7-inch Fabtech lift kit, 20-inch Ballistic Hostile wheels, and 35-inch Toyo Open Country treads assure that Jeremy's truck can't be compared to his last hauler. Jeremy also has a 1.5-inch Zone Offroad body lift kit waiting around to be installed, so if you think his truck is bad now, you haven’t seen anything yet.
Sinful In Silver
Anthony Yount has been working on his '69 Chevy shortbed for about five years now. Well, it was actually considered 'finished' before, but the parking brake gave out while it was parked on a hill. Needless to say, the truck sailed down the grade and was pretty much totaled as it slammed into anything and everything on its way down. Now on its second custom wind, Anthony's truck now sports an LS1 engine with a 4L60E tranny, a full air-ride suspension, and 20-inch Foose Legend wheels wrapped in Nitto rubber. The list of modifications that has been made to this truck is quite extensive, but just know that Anthony built a classic hauler that is simply gorgeous from every angle imaginable.
