Ok, thats poseur, tons of trucks in CA like that. With flame/skull patterned crawler tires completely worn-down from street use. Bonus poseur for chrome driveshaft.

Ok, so no lights on the roof @ all (2 on the Rockware bumper only), no jerrys on the roof, gear all inside-ie..rack only used for overflow, high lift jack kept elswhere except for wheeling weekends, no chrome anywhere, true/real off road scars to include bent up undercarriage protection.

I'm reading I escape the scorn of the faithfull ? Thank god ! I don't think I could take the ridicule.

What about your tire gauge?

It was on wired.com recently, and I read a lot of H.P. Lovecraft growing up.

its an old VDO analog gauge one, black and no chrome. My center cubby box is a custom deal made of aluminum but its not shiny so hopefully that isn't a kicker. Truck is currently covered with Virginia red clay- I let my brother drive home from the bar Thursday night and some how we ended up on some log skidder trail on a tree farm being harvested @ midnight doing four wheel drifts in high range with the turbo screaming (you can take the red neck out of the mountains but when he returns to gods country...). 10 inches of snow had melted that day so the clay was nice and soft. Letting him drive only cost me a tail light lense when we smacked a tree that refused to move out of the way quickly enough.

Okay - a blacked-out tire gauge definitely eliminates poseurness. I wish you'd drive that 110 out to Prescott next month . . .
