NC has just past a bill banning the Carolina Squat.

One cannot raise the front more than 3 inches and also lower the back by more 2 inches.
"They" say the headlights are a problem to on coming traffic.

I guess NC is a:

Luckily, this new law does not apply to most of the JL's that I have seen. However, those JL's are out there...

I know it looks dumb but what is the danger? Do they have less control or braking ability? A visibility problem?

Please tell me there are no Wranglers of ANY kind doing that ignorant nonsense! I'm pretty sure that would be grounds to lose your man car in most states. At the very least get your behind kicked in a dark alley.

I ran across a kid washing his truck here in myrtle with a huge squat. 6 inch lift in the front and stuffed in the back. The rims were so big his 35s looked like a roll of used electrical tape. While talking to him, I found him knowledgeable about his lift (a cheap brand that put leverage in all the wrong places), excited to share info on his trucks mods, and I enjoyed hearing about his squat truck experience. He was as proud of his truck as I am my jeep. We had a lot in common, just different tastes. Now when I see a squatted truck, I see someone with different tastes than me but a fellow enthusiast who can talk knowledgeably about suspensions and what it's like to twist a wrench on them. 😄

Don't worry - I'm sure the people who invented this are hard at work on something just as idiotic.

This was popular on the drag strip back in the sixties. It supposedly allowed significant weight transfer to the rear wheels when leaving the line. Street kids would copy this look on their cars. Ask me how I know....... My excuse, I was 23 years old.

To be 'legal,' I am sure there will be someone who figures out that they can raise the front and keep the rear stock. Then, put 40's in the front and a stock 17" wheel/tire combo in the back. Just a matter of time...
