Is Your Truck Here?

There are some things in life that are just made to go together: milk and cookies, peanut butter and jelly, and Readers' Rides and OFF-ROAD magazine. Every month, the staff at OFF-ROAD sets out on a journey to locate some of the most awesome rigs on the planet. When we finally finish scouring the ends of the Earth, we showcase our discoveries as feature vehicles. While we're on this quest, the mail carrier is also on his way to our box, delivering numerous letters that contain photographs and information about our loyal readership's rides submitted for publication.

After receiving so many hot rides for consideration, we have decided to take our readers' rides to another level and showcase the 25 hottest rides we've received, so that everyone may enjoy.

If your ride has not been featured, there's no need to worry; we still have plenty of submissions that we'll continue to publish each month. Since we never throw any of the submissions we receive away, rest assured that yours is in our file just waiting patiently for its turn.

So, keep those cards and letters coming. Send one or two non-returnable photos (no people, pets, Polaroids, or printouts, please) to: OFF-ROAD, Readers' Rides, 774 S. Placentia Ave., Placentia, CA 92870.
