Tire store trip and a cool Ranger.

Went to the tire store for some new shoes and saw this cool Ranger.







Pretty cool transformer tread at the tire store.























































..and the tires I got. Sigma Beefcake Street Meats

Typical Cali truck. You see that everywhere. Monster, SRH or some random suspension shop name on the side, front higher than the rear, pre runner bumper and no offroad time other than made parking it on a fire trail.

Yeah, those are fender flare scars. It was pretty beat up, but all the stickers make up for any lost coolness!!

lol and the welds were pretty gnarly on that thing. But once again stickers take over!!

..and I forgot to mention the corners. That's not niteshade, that's window tint! lol

Wow... chill dude... the silverado by Monster here in Seattle is obviously a street truck... I don't judge a truck just by it's looks but sue me for complimenting a good looking truck... not all trucks have to be off-roading beasts and not all trucks have to be show quality

haha, it looks good from 20ft. away but when you get close it's just a poser...

I'd rock all the decals IF I had the long-travel kit to back it up...

Yes, because you actually have to use a truck for it to break in most cases. Not your case but you get the idea.
