To get your truck featured in Readers Rides, email a high-resolution photo of your truck to mailto:Patrick.McCarthy@sorc.com. Send in a front 34 or profile shot of your truck, and make sure its big enough. For a digital file, try to make it at least 1MB. Dont use your cell phone! We print at a much higher resolution than a website, which means that sending links to photos posted online wont work. Also, please make sure that the whole truck is in the frame, dont cutoff the front or back of the truck. Remember, this is your pride and joy. Do your best to make your truck look its 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.
