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. Don't use your cell phone! 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. The more information, the better the article. 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.
Chevy must have done something right when they designed the new body style Silverados because they are everywhere. This one belongs to Eddie Romero, from Mission, Texas. The first thing Eddie did was swap out the front end for a new HD duplicate. For a better stance, Eddie had the Drop Shop, also in Mission, install a 5/7 lowering kit. A sunroof was installed at Kustom Kings Customs. For better performance, Eddie installed a K&N cold-air intake, Pacesetter ceramic long-tube headers, Borla exhaust, and two-piece driveshaft from Tellez Motorsports. Inside, a 7-inch JVC head unit sends signal to the Memphis Audio speakers, Powerbass amplifier, and the two 10-inch Kicker CVR subwoofers. Next, Eddie plans on installing Intro wheels and have some color matching done.
Tegan Gray is the kind of person who can't leave well enough alone. I guess we all get like that from time to time. When Tegan bought this 2006 Ford F-150, the first thing that had to be installed was a lift. Pro Comp was in charge of that as a 6-inch lift kit went on. To fill the fenders, a set of 18-inch chrome wheels was wrapped in 35-inch Nitto Mud Grapplers. To help turn these massive rollers, an aFe air intake and throttle-body spacer, Edge Evolution programmer, and MagnaFlow exhaust were added. LED taillights wrap up the mods on Tegan's Blue Oval.
Clemmie Jones is the proud owner of this 2003 Chevy Avalanche Z66. Being the Vice President of the Twisted Obsessionz Car Club means that Clemmie couldn't be caught driving a stock vehicle. So the first thing Clemmie did was paint the truck in a custom two-tone scheme with Chevrolet Deep Charcoal and reddish black paint. JDM halo headlights and LED taillights were installed for night operations. Under the hood is a Spectre 3-inch cold-air intake and a Jet Performance programmer. The audio/video is really what sets this truck apart from others. It consists of two 12.2-inch visor screens, two 7-inch headrest monitors, and a 15-inch fold-down, all powered by a Dual DVD/navigation head unit. All of the speakers have been changed from Bose to Kicker and are powered by a Power Acoustik 840-watt four-channel amp. For wheels and tires, Clemmie went with 24-inch II Craves wrapped in 305/40R24 Goodyear Fierce rubber.
For police officer Rob McDonald from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, his '05 Dodge Ram 1500 is what he uses to relax on his downtime. When he bought the truck it had chrome accents all over it. He swapped those out for paint-matched pieces. He also added Ventvisors over all of the tinted windows. For a better stance, Rob installed a leveling kit up front. Airbags in the rear help when Rob is towing and also give him a better ride when they are aired down. For rollers, a set of 35x12.50-inch Pro-Comp Extreme All Terrain tires were mounted on the factory 20-inch wheels. A Magnaflow exhaust, Airaid intake, and Superchips programmer bring out some more horses from the Hemi. Since the truck is used as a daily driver, a Bedrug bedliner was used and the bedrails, tailgate, and the front of the bed have been coated in bedliner. Chrome side steps and a ram-air hood complete the exterior looks of the truck. The interior is stock, but Rob did upgrade the audio to a Kenwood head unit, Memphis Audio mids and highs, and a Kenwood amp that powers two Kicker 10-inch subs. The next things on Rob's list are to swap out the stock 20-inch rims for something more aggressive looking and to paint the door handles and mirrors to match the truck.
