Don't See Your Ride?
That's because you haven't sent in your pictures! If you are reading this magazine, then chances are you have something cool parked in your driveway that other readers want to see. Whether it's your modified pickup truck or your UTV tearing up the sand dunes, we want to see what you've got. We just got a whole bunch of donated swag to give away to our favorite Off-Road Rides submission every month. So what are you waiting for? E-mail us a few of your favorite action shots in high-resolution format as well as some 411 on you and your ride to share. You may also snail mail prints to us.
"I am a long-time reader of OFF-ROAD magazine and I love it. I have always wanted to see my truck in the readers' rides section! You guys have a fantastic magazine and it is always giving me new ideas and the inside scoop on what my truck needs. I really appreciate your efforts, keep up the good work!"
Ari Opsahl, of Potomac, Maryland, sent us the above letter along with a couple images of his '03 Chevrolet Silverado pickup. It's been modified with a 6-inch Superlift Fit Kit suspension, 35-inch Pro Comp Xtreme MT tires, Fabtech steering stabilizer, Volant intake, Magnaflow exhaust and more. Thanks for the kind words, Ari!
What did you show up in your first day of college? I sure didn't have a nice '00 Toyota Tundra like Ben Shuck does. His Toyota is already sporting a K&N Intake System, spray-in bed liner, custom roll-bar, Pro Comp lights, a Cobra CB and dual 3-foot antenna whips. He tells us the front grille guard is from a '94 Ford F250 that he chopped up and modified to make fit. A suspension lift with black wheels and larger tires are coming soon.
We spotted this Yamaha Rhino during a recent trip to the Pismo Dunes. Chris Jones, of Reseda, California, has setup his '06 Yamaha Rhino to blast through the sand with ease. Up front we noticed a Twisted Suspension long-travel suspension. The new roll cage, doors, and light bar are custom made. Chris also added a Jet Kit, K&N air filter and a Flowmaster exhaust system.
Donna Beadle, of Elko, Minnesota, sends us this image of her '08 Polaris Ranger XP Browning Edition. She loves its vast utility purposes; this includes hitting the trails, going hunting in the back woods, or giving her best friends a ride through the hills. The Browning Edition from Polaris gives you the Mossy Oak graphics, seating for three, lock-and-ride cargo system and more.
Ryan Anzil from San Diego, California, has the adventure bug like so many of us do. His '95 Jeep YJ Wrangler takes him everywhere from the desert to the mountains. These two images show him off-road in Big Bear and Ocotillo Wells. These places are polar opposites when it comes to climate. Neither are too much for Ryan and his Jeep, though - both always looking for their next adventure. His Jeep is fairly stock but Ryan plans on adding 33-inch tires and lockers very soon.
