Drivers of lifted trucks, what are you attempting to compensate for?

I was born a grumpy old man. Back in my day we had to shift our own gears, heel toe our downshifts and didn't have cowardly TC or SM.

I work in oil and gas, so lifted trucks are the norm. They don’t bother me too much — nothing that my right foot can’t fix.

They bother me as much as any LLH or SUV or Tesla or hybrid or econobox or sports car that’s driving like an idiot.

I’ve got too much on my plate to give it too much thought.

Years ago, I saw one of these trucks with dried out several year old vegetation hanging from the undercarrriage. I'm sure he would never clean it so people think he drives off road, which he apparently did once in the distant past.

My inadequate package.

Also, I found
A fast way to make jerk chicken and rice.

You transport them in a lifted truck with misaligned HID lights.

The prime quality of a good jester is to jump back from the wall when they know they've hit one.

If you are not highway driving than at a stop light just adjust the side mirror to reflect into their driver side.

Sad thing is that even though improperly aligned lights are illegal the cops don't seem to do anything about it.
That is probably because some of them own trucks just like that so will tend to go easy on them. Besides, it's a lot easier
to just write speeding tickets so they can meet their quota...................err "performance standards."

I don't particularly like the huge, you have to use a step ladder to get in trucks. But, I know I would throw a 3 inch lift on Jeep and some 35s or 37s. The farm guys aren't lifting anything because it just makes it harder to load stuff, haul a trailer and probably screws up towing capacity. The compensating comment...... I guess Prius owners have really really big ones. :lol:
