me n my yota friend at folsom lake

or as they call it, granite bay.
prarie city was closed today, so after like hours of drivin around and askin locals, we finally made it to the beach.

not even 5 minutes of bein there, we decide to go pose next to eachother
and there happens to be a rock....well i flex on it cuz i was smart enough to put my truck in 4hi....well he leaves his in 2wd....and doesnt make it over the rock.
well he puts it into 4wd.....and burys himself.....so of course i pulled him out...with my brand new towstrap from walmart :)

lol. he blames the soft sand...
and hopefully either at the end of this week ill have money for tires
or two weeks after that....
depends on how much is on my next paycheck lol
.....buying my 18" sub/amp kinda side tracked me....lol

but u have no idea how much i want to mount em...i still hate these wheels with a passion
but to get the tires swapped around would have been half the price of a new set of tires, so i told both places to screw themselfs

I have the same truck, except its the 4.0 and I have BFG's AT on it and they're great. The tires are 265/75/16. I can probally squeeze 275's on if needed/wanted to.

Get out of my town! haha

Almost all the pictures I took of my truck while I had it were at Folsom Lake. My neighborhood is the last neighborhood before the Granite Bay entrance.
