The truck is a 2008 T660, and the pictures I have no clue. The camera was a cheap 2Meg camera, its so old that they now have 2 meg cameras on phones. I just held it really steady. And thats why the pics are up, to help people out. If you get familiar with it you will be more prepared than someone who isnt. And if you memorize them all you are even more ahead of the game.
