Submission InformationOK, so we think some of you may not be reading this intro, and that's OK, because lots of times we wouldn't read it either. But we did make a couple of changes, including some specs, so we're including a submission form this month so we can catch the attention of those guys (obviously not you) who never read this part. We'd really like all fields filled out, and remember to shoot your truck in the dirt, because that's the way we like to see 'em. Getting all of these things right will greatly increase your chances of getting your ride in Readers' Rides, and for those of you who don't...well, maybe we'll run out of submissions that are correct, but not likely. For you digital-savvy photographers, please make sure the photos measure no less than 1600 x 1200 pixels (or two megapixels) and be saved as a TIFF, EPS, or a maximum-quality JPEG file.
