Welcome to the site...

Your truck doesnt have a lift on it, its stock with what looks like a T-bar crank in the front that needs to be checked out, your front wheels/tires are angled like hell in this pic...

Not trying to be an A-hole, but you need to get that checked out...it looks bad, real bad.

To be honest with you, I wouldnt drive it, your driver side looks like its gonna snap...I'm surprised someone hasnt brought it up already.

Why is your dad having to pay for the alignment? Isn't it your truck?

I'm not trying to rag on you or your truck, just want to let you know that. But this is something that will cost you more in the long run if not taken care of. If you need to convince your father that something needs to be done then show him this thread...I can honestly say I havnt seen an alignment that bad in a while.

with the other people get that alignment fixed. Tell your dad to dish out the 50 to 80 bucks for an alignment unless he wants to buy new tires every 6 months

truck looks good. it does look like you need an alignment. i would be scared to drive that sucker bro. also it looks like those torsion bars are already cranked.

we all try to get together and go wheelin about once every 6 months or so. 00stepside and i usually go wheelin about once a month. we like the harder trails though.
