I cant find the uSB cable for my camera (just moved) when I do ill post a pic or 2.


the car at the moment is basicaly stock. It has Black Ign whels 17" and 2-3/4 " exhst with a magnaflow muffler (aslo a glasspack at the halfway point)

as sooin as I sell the truck My shopping list includes Springs or adjustable coil over (depends on price) chip, cold air intake, strut brace and at least a front bumper re-placement if not a complete body kit.

I would love to put a tubo on it but my budget is limited,
