Angry big truck hatin' people!

So I don't know if the states new plan to make money is to track down all the big trucks they can and hit em with whatever fines they can but thats what it seems like. I'm now in the process of getting rid o my storm trooper cuz apparently my truck kills people and blinds people. I've been pulled over 4 times now by tacoma pd, puyallup pd, pierce county sheriff, and now wsp. Got the rundown and measurements via tape measure each time. Bumpers are too tall front and rear, headlights are too tall, tires are too wide, no mud flapers in the front, tail lights are too tall, and the puyallup guy didn't even like my exhaust shootin out the back wtf. Finally on monday wsp gave me options with a warning. 1. fix it, 2. park it till its fixed, 3. get rid of it and 4. if i dont choose any of the previous 3 they'll have it towed and put in truck jail (impounded).

Get some flares and mudflaps and put a bar down in front of your bumper. Running with 40x15.50's without flaps/flares is probably eating the **** out of your paint anyways. They are dicks but it won't be too hard to at least mostly become regulation.

They're definetly cracking down. My old 96 dodge on 44" TSLs never got pulled over. The ONLY thing that was possibly considered legal on it was the mudflaps in the rear. they were 3 feet long. LOL.

Troy will stay in the Ford family. No worries on that front.

so sorry to hear you are being targeted. I think it`s the economy and they are trying to justify their jobs. They should be going after perv`s and hard drug addicts not easy marks like big azz trucks. By the way sweet looking truck

And hopefully it'll stay over there in the hippie states! I don't want that mess coming over here to the East Coast. We like our big trucks, and our guns, etc...
