We know the last thing on your mind when you get stuck is, "How can I take the best possible shot for the magazine?" Hey, we appreciate the fact that you get anything at all to send us. So, we've dedicated these pages of your Whoops! to you, the stuck wheeler.

If by some chance you do remember, a hint or two next time you're stuck: Don't shoot too far away if it's dark out, don't shoot into the light if it's sunny out, try not to shoot a flash directly at a mirror, and please stand out of the way of working people while taking the shot!

When you get home, send your shots to:
4 Wheel & Off-Road
6420 Wilshire Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90048

or by e-mail to
Try to make them at least 1600x1200 pixels, and in a TIFF or maximum-quality (or largest file size) JPEG format, and remember to include the image and the text.

VIDEO Whoops

Guidelines for Video Whoops!

Send us all relevant footage, but please keep total footage to no more than 20-30 minutes, or at least organized into sub-folders. Final featured video clips will be edited to between 1.5 to 2 minutes in length. Getting stuck is cool, but recovering is even cooler! We want to see you being winched out, pulled out, or just powering out with plenty of spinning and splatter!

Technical Requirements
Video Whoops! footage is accepted on Mini-DV tape (preferred), or burned on Mac-formatted CD-R / DVD-R's as a .mov, .avi, or .mpg file. The size of the clip should be 320 x 240. Since submitted media cannot be returned, if you want to keep a copy, we recommend getting the footage duplicated, or save it on your computer and burn a DVD before sending us the tape or disc. Videos will be posted at the editor's discretion. Please send your Video Whoops! to:

4 Wheel & Off-Road, Video Whoops!
