Insert Your Rides Here

Have you ever wanted to see your rig in the pages of 4Wheel Drive & Sport Utility magazine? Well, good news! We’re putting together a special section in an upcoming issue dedicated to your rides! Clean, ugly, stuck, jumping, it doesn’t matter -- we welcome them all. The entire process is even quite simple.

For starters, send us your best photos. We’ll expand on this later in the article, but please, no grainy cellphone photos. The second bit of info we need is the history of the rig and what you use it for. Accompany this rig bio with a quick-and-easy tech box (see sidebar “How to Submit”). To help navigate your way down the road to fame, we’ve put together a few pointers for getting the best shot of your rig. So, don’t delay! The deadline for photo submissions is September 1st.

Cute girls can literally bring life to a photo, but it won’t help your chances of getting into the magazine. Also, watch your background. If your driveway is more challenging than the Rubicon Trail, then by all means, shoot your rig there. If it looks like every other concrete pad in America, please refrain from the boring driveway snapshot.

Taking good photos in the woods can be extremely difficult. Trees can cast heavy shadows, which means you must rely heavily on fill-flash to add light to the dark environment. Darker-colored rigs can compound this problem. Look for open spaces with natural, unbroken light to improve your chances of snapping the best shot.

How to Submit

Along with your rig’s history, fill out the specifications chart you see here. We don’t need you to cut it out of the magazine, just craft an email with all of the required information. Please send all submissions to with the subject line: My Rig.

Action shots are always a plus, but they only work when the vehicle is in focus! Most of us shoot with digital cameras, so take lots of photos and sort through them for the best and most focused.
