Running boards look retarded. But I like the grill on there. But the orange below the grill....retarded. lol. Nice find!!

Seriously orange and boards are ugly! Like real ugly! The grill is kinda mixed feelings for now not really sure. I'm not digging the wheels either so that may be a problem to try and find me some SS wheels here in KSA.

Anyways it's an alternative let's see if he's interested. He's tight on cash and needs a cheaper car. Sooooooo that's where I come in :rotfl:

Why the hell do you need more power for highway driving? Once its at highway speeds who gives a shit about power. Set the cruise and roll.

But just do something...obviously you don't want your truck. Sell it and buy what you want instead of trying some halfass trade deal.

My trans is slipping and seems gonna be headed for a rebuild soon enough that's another main reason. Gas selling prices are about 0.15 cents per litre. In other words I fill her up with about $10 :wink:

If you do get that TBSS I say get rid of that red/orange crap on the bottom or black it out with plasti dip and that grill I would just black it out! Looks good just the chrome isn't doing it much justice though!

I'm originally Palestinian but having a Jordanian citizenship. Both Palestine and Jordan got high prices, taxes, etc... Mostly like the US except the wages suck big time! An average pay would be anywhere between $700-$1000 a month. That's considered good.

If you're a hot shot you'd be making 3-4k. Not many hot shots though just that %1 of the society. The average family are now barely holding on. Just sad!

Well finally made my decision. Though was having mixed feelings and all I've decided to keep my TB another year or so until I immigrate. It's now time to complete my pending project for the HU and new shoes + tires!

I got two options for shoes! 1. purchase 17'' american trench that come in chrome online or option 2 which is to purchase Boss 316's from a guy here locally but they're 20's! You guys know him from the old OS he was AbuAbdulaziz! Real nice guy! he sold his TB to his uncle and got stuck with a GMC Acadia :no::no:

problem with 20's though they're awesome looking rims and available immediately, it means gotta get spacers to fit in the bigger tires cuz i'm lifted. Don't wanna go down that road. Here's a pic of the rims and his ex-ride! Some of you may recognize it! He's here in Saudi Arabia too.

Other route is Sticking to 17's for now which means I can keep my existing tires so dont spend all my money at once lol!
Soooooo all this being said i'll be seeing you around :tongue:
