Long-Time Reader, Grey-Bar Subscriber
Hi guys, I'm currently receiving your magazine in the Gray Bar Hotel (jail). I have seen your magazine in a movie I've seen here. So I'm like "Wow, can you get that in jail?!" So I checked into it and now I'm receiving OFF-ROAD. So I'd like to say a big thanks for looking out for us inmates and giving us something good to read.
OFF-ROAD is very popular in here-as soon as I get it, I have a list of inmates waiting to read my copy. I have been trying to get your sister magazine, Diesel Power, but for some reason have not received any for eight months now. Still hoping to see it sometime.... After spending just about five years in jail, I'm looking forward to getting out and receiving my pop's old truck (a Ford flair side '91 from the showroom floor at the time). It has a 5.8L engine and 33-inch tires.
New items are a set of manual locking hubs, wiring harness, alternator, and battery. Has 298,089 miles on it and no engine work. I do not know what kind of tranny, axles, or transfer case, but I do know it is an automatic trans with a 3.11 gear ratio in the axle (so I'm told). After looking over your magazine I know there are a lot of things that I can do to upgrade my truck.
Thanks! As for the magazine, great work, I really like the way you do your sections: Hardware, Rides, Long-Term Updates, and Tech sections. I also like the way your art director sets up the pages. The print is large and legible and I absolutely love the photography! I can't leave out the advertisements; if it weren't for them I would not know what to buy and use on my truck when I get out.
So from everyone here, keep up the great work and a huge thanks for getting your magazine to us inmates.

Shane, we really appreciated your letter. It was one of the nicest we've gotten in a long time, and I'm stoked to hear we'll have some guys on our side if we ever get put on the wrong side of the bars ourselves!
By the way, I think that movie you're referring to is Con Air, but if there's another one with Off-Road Magazine in it, please let us know!
