If my mother in law got a vehicle that she got a loan for, and i paid it, how can i get the credit?
mother in law got us a great deal on a vehicle. basically, she signed all the paperwork, we got her interest rate, and she let us use the vehicle, while we paid for it. I recently paid it off, she received the title and what not. Is there a way to write a letter of some sort explaining the financial responsibility was mine for the duration of the loan and getting that reported to the credit bureaus???

Sorry, but there is no way to get that on your reports.  Creditor report data on the person that signed the loan.  They don't care who paid the bills.  You can try a letter, but I doubt if it does any good.
