    What should I do?

    Get these rims and new tires for my truck (they look chrome in my photoshop picture):

    Pros:
    -Make it look less like a work truck
    -Will need new tires soon anyways

    Cons:
    -Have to buy new tires

    Get a new exaust system for my truck (3in down pipe, 4in strait pipe no cat/muffler):


    Pros:
    -more power and mpg

    Cons:
    -have to modify my firewall some (bfh does the job well :D )
    -aluminized steel, not stainless (cheapest stainless i found is ~500+ install)

    Keep working on my scout:
    Pros: get it done sooner
    Cons: high possibility of getting fed up with it and setting it on fire

    Those rims are almost identical to rims I had on my 79 Ranchero (Squire) package.

    I had 15x8 on the front 235/60/15 and the rear was 295/60/15 BF Goodritch T/A Radials.

    I'll see if I have a pic floating around. It was black with woodgrain along the side. Only 758 made. Twin comfort lounge seats, full gauges....oh I miss it. Well I don't miss the 351M junk motor. Sorry about the Hi-Jack. Those rims just brought back a memory or two. Get the rims.

    Yeah same body for both years. The hot mod back then was swapping the front clip with one from a Thunderbird because of the hideaway headlights.
