    They should come to the USA, go get inspected once every 10 years or so.

    I have done things close to that a time or two. Using better materials than what that one did. You would not believe how easy it is to get a sick truck rolling for a little while.

    Frustrated reading the article. The wire holding up the tierod is because the balljoint is broken. There is no "its leaf springs wired to a suspension component that shouldn't be dangling loose (we've seen that before with the world's worst custom exhaust). Presumably, the hanger visible just inches to the right of the wires has failed, potentially due to rust."
