Enter your pickup or SUV for a chance to be in our 2012 Readers' Rides Showcase. Dead line is October 3, 2011 so get out there and have some fun!

Did you miss out on being a part of the 2011 Readers' Rides story? Well, it's time for the 2012 edition! Whether you have a show-quality truck, a hard-working hauler, an immaculate classic, a daily driver, or something rare or unusual that people would have to see to believe, we want to get a peek at the photos. This is your chance to put your pride and joy in the spotlight. 

Use the form on this page to tell us all about your pickup or SUV -- what you've done to it, what you use it for, and any great stories that involve your ride. And if you start by saying, "It may not look like much...," let us know what cool technology hides under your pickup's clever disguise. When you send us photos, it would be great to see your vehicle in action: towing a boat or ATVs, working hard on the job site, in a cool vacation setting, or filled with friends on spring break (but keep it tasteful). All you need do is make sure you have the form completely filled out and photos shot to the best of your ability, then send them in.

We must have all submissions by October 3, 2011. Look in our January/February 2012 issue to see if your truck makes the cut. That issue goes on sale November 29, 2011.

Click here for a full-size submission form to fill out so we know more about your truck and what you use it for.
