To get your truck featured in Readers’ Rides, email a high-resolution photo of your truck to Maxwell.Matthewson@sorc.com. Send in a front 3⁄4 or profile shot of your truck, and make sure it’s big enough. For a digital file, try to make it at least 1MB. We print at a much higher resolution than a website, which means that sending links to photos posted online won’t work. Also, please make sure that the whole truck is in the frame, don’t cutoff the front or back of the truck. Remember, this is your pride and joy. Do your best to make your truck look it’s best. Also, make sure to include plenty of information about you and your truck. If you want to get your ride noticed by posting it on our website, go to rides.truckinweb.com Upload up to 20 photos of your vehicle, along with detailed descriptions.
[Ride Of The Month]
This 2007 Chevy Avalanche belongs to Jorge Ledon, of Miami, Florida. Jorge owns a paint and body shop in Miami and as you can tell from his truck, does great work. Opting for a blacked-out look, Jorge replaced all of the chrome with black pieces and color-matched everything else on the truck. All of the plastic bed moldings have also been removed, smoothed, and painted to match the truck. Going with a McGaughy’s suspension, Jorge installed a 2/3-drop to achieve a better stance. He then decided to go with KMC for their black powdercoated Slide 24-inch wheels and BFGoodrich g-Force KDW rubber.
This 2008 Ford F-150 XLT SuperCrew belongs to Stephen Martin, of Charlotte, North Carolina. After buying the truck new in late 2008, Stephen immediately started customizing it. The sound system consists of a Pioneer head unit, Infinity Reference 6½-inch front speakers, Infinity Reference 6x8-inch rear speakers, a Lightning Audio amp, and a Kicker Comp 10-inch sub. To better his F-150’s stance, Stephen used a pair of 2-inch rear drop shackles. All of the interior and exterior lighting has been converted to LED and the headlights are Noyka Artic Blue HIDs. A Carriage Works billet grille and bumper insert have also been added to spruce up the front and Michelin LTX rubber on a set of 20-inch wheels keeps Stephen rolling. For added performance, Stephen added a K&N intake and Flowmaster 40 series exhaust.
Marinette, Wisconsin, is home to Jamie Fehrenbach and his 1999 GMC Sierra. With suicide doors and a forward-tilt hood, this Sierra is one-of-a-kind. A custom front suspension, four-linked rear suspension with airbags on all four corners, you can be sure that Jamie’s Sierra sits low to the ground. It also has a power sunroof, one-off power roll-down rear glass, shaved handles, and a train horn to let drivers know Jamie does not approve of their driving. In the near future, Jamie wants to lay on a custom paintjob and install a bumping sound system.
