anyone want to cannibalize this truck? I just want the wheels, maybe someone wants the 4.0...



Not to mention the fronts look like the Tomb Raider editions with all that brake dust

And don't take their word for it being correct boost wheels or in the condition they describe, either. Have them send you pictures - usually texting them to you is easiest.

Yeah, that much I figured, never trust a salvage yard to enter items correctly or to maintain any sort of inventory online

Precisely. Or they'll tell you they know exactly where they are, then when you show up they have no idea where they've gone.

I think i have seen this before, but I couldn't remember where...

looks like their shipping is reasonable as well, might be worth buying new, if it includes center caps...

To be honest, I was about to send them out and have them refinished and am thinking of going to steel wheels. I bought them a while ago from another board member a week after I mounted new tires on my truck so they have been sitting in my garage.
I forgot what I paid for them, But yes I would sell them
I may be kicked out of NY.
