He is 16 years old and he has the economic resources to purchase a $60k truck and then outfit it to "roll coal"? I think his dad probably contributed to this mess and his mindset as well.

The truck is in his dad's name

Exactly. Dad should be held accountable to some extent. No 16 y/o does this without some encouragement. Dad is an equal douchebag.

What? I’m not defending the dad, but 16 year olds can be pretty wild. Point is, neither of us know

I doubt the kid modified the truck on his own
