10 Best Readers’ Diesels

Highlights from Diesel Power’s popular showcase of reader-submitted rigs.

"How can I get my truck in the magazine?"
We're confident that through the years, it is the question that editors are asked most frequently, by proud car, truck, boat, motorcycle, or other vehicle owners, who dream of seeing their ride in the pages of their favorite rag.
In many ways, earning mention in a magazine—regardless of how big or small the acknowledgement—validates a build, and it sets both truck and owner just a few rungs higher on the socially critical Ladder of Fame. Photos and information presented in print, and now on Internet screens, tells the masses that an editor feels a truck is exceptional, for one reason or another.
Although trucks typically are selected for magazine exposure based on their physical merits (i.e. "how good they look," "how well they run," etc. ), a rig's backstory is often taken into account, too. Like most auto enthusiast mags, Diesel Power included "Readers' Diesels," a monthly three-page department that featured reader-owned trucks exclusively.
Through the years, we saw plenty of great trucks and enjoyed reading awesome testimonials about them. And, as we explained to many an enthusiast, submitting pictures and info to Readers' Diesels was always the best way to "get your truck in the magazine."
Although we are now forging ahead through cyberspace, the spirit of Readers' Diesels lives on through the years of articles that are archived here. Enjoy this collection, and be sure to stay tuned for more to come in the future.
