Passed a pickup on the freeway here in Minnesota this week that was squatting, big time, in the middle.

Had to be a busted and/or rusted frame. I was actually waiting for the thing to break in half.

As I went by I looked to see who was inside. I noticed two HUGE (and not in a good way) individuals inside. Probably heading to Walmart.
Oh, so at 145, I shouldn't be shopping at Walmart anymore?

It's cute and all when an overlanding enthusiast does this to their truck and goes out to the desert every weekend. Somebody who drives chill and is all about that.

It's another thing when you see a Raptor or Silverado fitted with that kinda bumper delete honking up/down the main street at 70mph weaving through traffic like a BMW M3.

Those things belong on trailers, not on public roads. The little Tacoma is one thing. A modern truck with all its gear probably weighs twice as much lol. And sits twice as high.

So that the driver of that aesthetic abortion can play inappropriate content that people in the following vehicles, and their children, will be forced to see for at least a moment.

Don't underestimate the aggressive disregard that some people have for their fellow citizens.

most of you are missing the point. I don't give a rats ass how dumb this lift type may look, as long as it's not recklessly dangerous whats the point of banning it. this wasn't banned because it was recklessly dangerous thing to do, this was banned because asshat polititians mistake things they don't like to see vs what people should be allowed to do. next they'll think my lift on my jeep shouldn't be legal. aint no harm in squatting your truck. I would NEVER do it to my truck...but I cannot understand why it would be BANNED like menthol fucking cigarettes. I want politicians to STAY AWAY from my jeep, as long as i'm not being reckless

Some of the reasoning for the bill was the headlights could not / were not adjusted so the light is not pointed at approaching traffic. Though not stated in the bill, another reason could be driver visibility issues. There are YT videos out there that show that when driving a squatted vehicle, the driver cannot see the road in front of him. All the driver sees is sky. If the bill was just related to looks or one's taste, then the bill would be over reaching, IMHO. The bill's foundation appears to be related to the safety of others.

Personally, I don't like the squatted look. Though, IMHO, squatting makes a vehicle look ridiculous, I support the freedom of expression thing and I don't like the government telling me what I can and cannot do as it pertains to a benign personal choices. However, IMHO, a squatted vehicle is a significant safety risk to others.
