I went through this yesterday at a show I attended.  Your truck has to meet five criteria to be considered for a Feature.  It must have clean body/paint, suspension work, interior work, motor work, and it needs to have attention to detail.  If you think your truck has all the necessary components to make the cut email Brandon.Gillogly@sorc.com.

Sorry found my error.  Brandan.Gillogly@sorc.com or Dan.Ward@sorc.com, keep in mind the fellas are pretty busy and they get tons of emails regarding features.  It may take some time for them to get back to you.

Since this forum is sponsored by Truckin' Magazine, don't you think that'd be the first place to look? Secondly make sure you've got GOOD photos to submit. Lots of stuff gets rejected because the subject doesn't operate a camera very well. Find out all the steps involved in the modification and make an easy to understand list. Editors get tons of this stuff and sorting thru it takes a lot of time, so make it easy for them and your chances improve. Before & After pix also help people visualize what was accomplished. Hit your local magazine store and take a look at what's available, and either buy a copy of each that fits your profile, or make a note of which ones tickle your fancy then go online and figure out how to send in ideas.  There's a space inside where it tells how to submit article or ideas for articles. Write a clear, concise letter and send it in. If you persist, your chances iget bettter. If that seems like a lot of work to you, then stop trying and give up. If it was easy, every hunk o' junk would be in a magazine!
