    Am I the only Samoan interested in offroading, building my truck to be more than capable off the pavement and actually going offroad and away from the normal "bling, Im rich" look everyone thinks should be the goal? Dont see many people from the far away pacific island of American Samoa here or in other forums and social media involving tundras, hmmmm, I guess Im unique.

    My friends and I build our trucks to use them. They get beat up, but they take us to some of the most remote areas around

    You're making me miss Samoa. I've got great memories from down there. Beautiful islands. Beautiful people. Beautiful surf.

    I am not sure what the OP means by the "bling, I am rich" look, but when I see osidepunker's truck, I see a lot of $$$ that went into the truck.

    Looks awesome, by the way.

    Thanks man!

    He means trucks with 12" bracket lifts and 40" tires on 20" wheels with heavy plate bumpers. They spend a lot of money to make the truck look cool, but they are absolute useless off road. Yes, my truck cost a lot of money and time to build, but I can take it almost anywhere off road, carrying lots of gear, and it will be reliable. Oh, and its fast AF:

    Ya know, I personally think you need a bed speaker that plays a recording of someone performing the haka. To fire people up at the beginning of a trail run with that would be badass :thumbsup:

    its a slow build but im liking the idea of tattoo wrap

    will do

    yea man, doing it the way I want naw mean?!

    badass

    wow, thanks man, I miss home and its a relaxing place. Simple life not too lost in industrialization, its beautiful like hawaii but not as developed, still very serene

    cool, one of the very few, would love to meet up

    Yes the "bling" of 22" rims, mercedes and other expensive luxuries that can only survive on pavement, I hate those but not in a way that I haste those people

    Yes, you got it right, I want my truck to go anywhere and I love to go fast

    If I go to any of these local meets I wouldnt mind doing the haka, it would be a first in an "offroad" world
