jorge owns the truck. They're 345/75 R16 on boost wheels with (from what I recall) a 3.5 inch lift. Better pics of it here.

Spring break in Curacao ? Really ? Damn things have really changed since we used to come to Liquordale, Fl for spring break and then run down through the Keys back in the early 80's.
What do you give a kid for high school graduation now days, an African Safari ?

Yesterday I saw a LR3 pulling a Ex-MOD 90 soft top up I-85. This was in Greenville, SC about 12:30. They were heading north and I was rolling south. Looks like he had the 90 on a tow dolly.
