I haven't been checked yet this year, so if it's a new truck I probably haven't seen it. I'll confess a total ignorance of wheels and the difference in durability and cost... now, if it had chromed spinners on it I'd have a problem with that. Aftermarket seat covers sound like a wise investment to me given the work they do (And he could have bought them out of his own pocket). We agree on the winch. IMHO, for an officer that is going to spend a lot of very long days in a truck working for us ... I don't think it's inappropriate for him to have some conveniences to make his job easier and more comfortable. Just my opinion. They don't do that job for the money. Starting at $15.55/hr after a 4+ year degree?
