    Minitruckers are some of the most relaxed people in the car scene.

    gonna start w/ my suspension. bushing making noise so gonna go through and replace them all with energy suspension bushing. then i'll be lowering it. one thing i REALLY starting to love about this truck is how cheap it is gonna be to modify compared to my other car. in the end gonna go for something like the one in this video its more my style....

    what ever you do "DON'T" stretch the tires on the rims. It is the stupidest thing you can do. Stretching the tires can cause the tire to unseat and you can lose control of the truck possibly killing yourself, passenger or someone in another car/truck. Looking "KWEL" and being safe should not be 2 different things.

    Is that a Toyota? Where is the disinfectant spray at? lol

    Guy should of painted his truck instead of putting $2000 worth of rims and tires on it.

    TT, I'm sure you can come up with something better then the video truck, Be original and make it more eye catching to everyone. And cheap to fix up? lmao You have not bumped your head lately have you? JK! These trucks are, or can be expensive things to make modern. Get the credit card ready, you may be surprised that our import trucks parts are more expensive then American car parts.

    Keep us informed on your build, Pictures Pictures and photos.

    Lol bro trust me I got a Kia Forte sedan I've been modding for the past 3 years. I can't even get a lip kit for under 2500 bucks. Anything good I like i have to get shipped from Korea. So yes compared so far these are cheaper but I'll see as I go along....lol
