Editor's Note: Getting your truck into Readers' Wheels is free and simple. Just send one or two non-returnable photos (no people, pets, Polaroids, or printouts please) to: Off-Road Magazine, Readers' Wheels, 774 S. Placentia Ave., Placentia, CA 92870. We work four months ahead, so be patient, and if you send a SASE, we'll try to let you know which issue to look for.

Altitude Adjusted 4 FunThe '01 Chevy Silverado Z71 pictured here is owned by Nick Mackery from Jacksonville, Florida. Not long after Nick purchased it, he added a few off-road accessories. For starters, the truck was given an altitude adjustment via a 3-inch body lift from Performance Accessories along with an additional 4-inch lift from Rancho. For improved off-road traction, Nick added 16x35x16.5 Super Swamper Boggers mounted on 12x16.5 Weld Super Single II wheels. For a final touch, Nick protected the bed with a Rhino liner.

Bronco with AttitudeJustin Buntil purchased this '73 Bronco for a mere $3,000. Then he beefed up its performance with a new 350-cid Chevy small-block - bored 0.30 over - an Isky cam, and a 600-cfm Edelbrock with a performer intake that's powered by a new 700-R4 transmission with a shift-improvement kit. To help the truck breathe better and add an extra punch, Justin installed Hedman headers and a Flowmaster exhaust. Pro Comp suspension provides a little off-road attitude with a 4-inch suspension lift in addition to the 3-inch body lift. Under the fenders are 35-inch Pro Comp tires on 15x10-inch Hellcat wheels. Justin plans to add a full rollcage, a new interior, and new paint.

Custom InspiredLaGrange, Georgia-resident Brian Hester is the owner of this 2000 Chevy Silverado Z71. Brian's truck features a Rancho 6-inch lift with 35x12.50x16 Super Swamper SSRs on 16x8-inch Weld Racing wheels. For front-end protection and easy entry and exits, the truck is equipped with a Smittybilt grilleguard and Westin nerf bars. Other body modifications include APC carbon-fiber tails, a Reflexxion cowl-induction hood, window vents, and a Rancho skidplate. For the motor and the undercarriage, Brian installed a K&N air filter, a Hypertech programmer, a Flowmaster exhaust, and Superlift rear leaf springs. Brian states that he was inspired to customize through the pages of OFF-ROAD and hopes that his truck will inspire others to do the same.

NitemareKnown as Nitemare for its aggressive off-road features, this '91 Chevy 2500 4x4 belongs to Tim Cullop from High Point, North Carolina. The truck is equipped with a 350-cid V-8, a K&N filter, an MSD Ignition, Borla headers, and dual Flowmaster mufflers with chromed Borla tips. The 4x4 sits high with a combination of a 3-inch body lift, a 6-inch Superlift up front, and rear 6-inch Skyjacker springs. The 15x39x16 Micky Thompson Baja tires encircle American Eagle 589 16x10-inch wheels. Nitemare is also equipped with a steel cowl-induction hood, a steel roll pan, a Rhino brushguard, and Rhino side steps.
