A large crowd of show-nshine trucks competed for bragging honors, cash and some cool trophies on a day that was perfect for show trucks in the bright sun.

Send In Your Rides Part 2!!!

After the first installment of the Readers’ Rides Collection, we decided to post part 2. These posts are excellent ways to check out fellow community-members rides without possibly risking getting COVID-19 during these bizarre times. Hearing stories about other people’s builds is inspiring and is sure to motivate others to keep working on their builds. Additionally, people tend to overspend a lot of money working on their builds, so you’ll be helping people save money by finding more affordable brands with competitive quality. If you want your truck to be featured in these installments, post a picture of your truck on Instagram or Facebook, tag Diesel World and we could check out your story!

Part 3: A Racing Ram and Lifted Ford

Readers’ Rides: A Racing Ram and Lifted Ford

Nathanael Snyder has racing in his blood. “My family has been racing for more than 50 years,” he tells us. Hailing from Reelsville, Indiana, which is just down the road from Indianapolis (sometimes called the “Racing Capital of the World”), the 29-year-old Nathanael built his 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 for speed. It also apparently does pretty well on the dyno.

Part 4: A Dodge Ram and Daily-Driven Duramax

Readers’ Rides: A Cherry-Red Dodge and Daily-Driven Duramax

Justin Clapp of Mayfield, Kentucky, was almost apologetic when he submitted his 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 to Diesel World, writing that his Mega Cab was really “nothing special.” Perhaps, the young man was just being modest. The truth is we found a lot to like about what we saw—the red Dodge is certainly photogenic and the list of modifications proves that the truck has come a long way from its stock origins.

If you didn’t get a chance to submit or post your truck for part 2, you should consider doing it anyway. By submitting or posting your truck, you might help someone who’s trying to find inspiration or motivation for their build. A lot of truck builds take much longer than necessary because of financial and motivational problems, so if you enter your truck, you could help someone achieve their goal of finishing their dream build!
