How do you guys feel about lifted trucks?

I live in Flower Mound, TX. Every teenage douchebag has a lifted truck.

Last year, a lifted truck was parked next to my friends Mustang. Truck tried to pull out, was a dumbass, monster-trucked the mustang. Douchebag called his affluent father and his dad came over and told them to keep it "off the books", for insurance's sake. Friend gets fat check to fix up car from affluent father.

All is well right? NO.

These dumbasses lift up these trucks, make too much noise, hang fake testicles from their tow hitches, and are just all around douchbags. They don't actually do any sort of off-roading that might require the use of such a vehicle.

It makes me angry. I hate them all.


What about you guys?

I agree, at my high school everybody who thought they were "cool" had one, and after school they would always rev up a bunch with their fart cans and zoom around like they owned the place. They would always take up two parking spots too. I saw a few collisions when these trucks were trying to park, I was even on the receiving end. They tried to squeeze into the spot next to me and I ended up with a nasty dent/scratch on the rear quarter panel. At least college isnt like that, I have gone all of college without a door ding

I don't mind if it serves a purpose, but the kind you're describing are certainly driven by douchebags. The few times I've been harassed on the road involved groups of kids in brodozers.

The thing is, I have seen some with dirt all over them, so I assume that the lift is practical, it's just that they are always pretentious douchebags that absolutely cannot drive, and are very rude to other drivers, and are perhaps compensating for their lack of wedding vegetables.

I grew up in socal (mostly around Asians) and the "cool" kids were always about slamming their car. Then I went off to a primarily white college. Met a white girl who digged my stock height Celica (yeah, chick car) because of how low it looked. She came from a town where everyone's about how high their trucks are lifted so this was different to her. Her town's definition of "cool" was hard to grasp for me. I know sounds racist but I don't mean to be. Guess it's a regional/cultural thing.

From then on, I understood lifting is a customization/image thing like how we drool at rims. But when I see a lifted truck I don't exactly drool at height.

I see where you're going, and I totally understand. But these lifter guys turn their cars into menaces to society!

If you slam your car, you might rub your body on the occasional road but at least you can see out! In these trucks, these guys can't see like 6 feet in front of them, because of how incredibly high up they are! And they end up running over a lot of things/fluffy animals/people! It's ridiculous.

And a small slammed japanese car still fits in a compact car space. A lifted trucker parks diagonally in like 3 spaces!


But now i'm just ranting...


Edit: If switchlanez calculations are correct, when I pick up an AS1, I should be getting lots of ladies! SCORE! Too bad I can only fit 1 with legs and 2 without legs...

They should be illegal as they completely negate all safety laws and only idiot douche bags drive them. Also, to show how stupid Americans are: The best selling US vehicle, the Ford F series, which you would think is invaluable to society due to sales volume, is not even sold in Europe, why you ask, because they (F series not Europeans) are pointless!! In Sweden they are called ''City Trucks'' and that is a major insult over there because you don't need a truck in the city.

"I just grab a bucket of dirt and throw it ontop of my truck to look legit" lol

anyways. I hate them. What I hate the most is when theyre lifted and have HIDs which shoot the light everywhere and because of their height it beams right into your eyes and blinds the crap out of you especially if they have additional lights. I really wish they were illegal here in CA for numerous reasons. They're such a safety issue especially with their heavy wheels and tires and lifted suspension when backing up or tailgating someone on the freeway.

And those FOX and DC stickers -__-*

Word to the wise, don't hate on the vehicles, hate on the dudes who drive them.

Being from Socal, you've seem them all! Eses in low lows, flatbillers in lifted F150 and Ranger Prerunners, asians in ricers, squids on bikes etc.

I have a lifted Tacoma and I get the traditional shit talking about how my truck isn't a "real truck". I hate seeing the nutsack on the tow hitch. That has got to be the most dumbest thing you can add to your vehicle, especially with a dude driving it. The second most dumbest thing is the mustache on the front bumper and the eyelash on the headlights.
