I've got a schecter damien 6 right now, had it for a couple years and it's great especially for the price. Now I put 52 gauge strings on it and have it tuned to a B and it works just as well, stoner metal ftw.

Your tires are on backwards. Other than wheels, bumper, and screwed up light, i think it's nice I like old trucks.
