Re: Which magazine is best?
In my experience, all of the writing and editing is terrible, even if the tech is good. THis applies to all of the truck magazines, the publishers think that the audience could care less about proper English and sentence structure.
However, this does not keep me from reading them, they are very interesting.
Off-Road: Shows a LOT of chromed show trucks. Very few usable, cheap modifications. If your paint doesn't sparkle, you won't be in this one. Also, they seemed to be owned by 4wheel Parts Wholesalers.
4 Wheel and Off-Road: Very good, cheap modifications available for all types of trucks and Jeeps. Also they have very cool theme issues. They also seemed to be owned by a shop, Off-Road Unlimited. It apperas that any truck with more than one axle can get into the Reader's Rides section. Most of their feature stuff is from California though. And the cover falls off of it as soon as it arrives in the mail.
JP: 4Wheel and Off-Road for Jeeps. I really like this one for the tech. They seem to not be attached to any particular shop.
4Wheel Drive and Sport utility: Beautiful photographs and fair writing. Most of their tech is ARB stuff, but it is thorough. They show a lot of Australian trucks and Toyotas. They seem to not know what mud is.
Hope this helps.
