well decided to go back to the construction site, lmao... but get this , i go to crawl over the hill that blocked the entrance like i did the night before, and some clever guy took the dozer and cut out the dirt behind the hill, so i go up and try to get over and well my truck was almost teeter tottoring with the back wheels freely spinning..... so gay ;( but come to realize that there is a road that enters the site and requires no climbing of nothin

Looks good. I like the mazda bed styles, looks nice. If you dont mind me asking what you roughly paid for the wheels/tires?

i bought the buckshots from a friends for 300, they were on some eagle alloy rims, so i sold the alloys for 250 and bought the cragars, so if that makes any sense, also 60 for removing off the alloys, and placing them on the cragars, plus balancing
