You're right, what was I thinking....
Oh, I’m with you on that.
It’s just that I see darned few of them dirty, much less off road, and I’m a farm guy. That’s only a local observation of course.
I doubt headlights could be properly aimed with that extreme lift. So where safety inspections are the law someone needs to write a few tickets.
Can’t even smuggle stuff with that setup
Or carry a bunch of fire wood.
Yes, I was just reminded of all the big tire trucks picking up bales of dope on the east coast beaches back in the 70’s.
I think it always looked stupid.
Neighbor lifted his psd truck. When I told him he reduced his payload, towing ability... he didn’t believe me. Loved the look with 35” tires...
Yr later he traded it for a uplifted one. Seems it didn’t work great, lots of issues. Thousands of $$$ wasted.
We call it the Palatka drag around here and I been here since 92. Prob been going on since the early 80’s in these parts.
I have heard that it started as the Palatka drag or Palatka lean. That's in Florida, right?
That look was popular back in the early '70s with wannabe dragracers. Back then Mopars came with front torsion bars. People would crank them up in 5 minutes and run around with the new "cool" look unfortunately toe and camber got real funky. Like eat a set of tires down to the belts in a 100 miles.
It was educational for many.
I haven’t noticed these too much around Orlando, but when in St. Augustine awhile back they looked to be quite popular, especially with loud music playing.
I can't imagine driving around constantly looking at the sky.
If you can't see that Prius you just ran over, does that mean it wasn't really there?
Maybe this is so they can put the tailgate down and use it as a built-in ramp for loading their ATV.
Oops, double tapped.
Just like back in the 1950s
If I have not noticed the squat here. If I saw it, I just assumed that they had a bunch of rocks or something in the bed.
Funny, Orlando is where I grew up , never saw it there, and moved to St. Aug in 92 and was the 1st time I saw it. I’m still here and they’re still dragg’n. Now the new this is the huge exhaust side almost dragging on the road too lol
oh yea, the carolina lean. yea, been popular for a while. usually, if not strictly, chevys.
19-26 year old white male named chad piloting the rig. either daddys money, in a nice new rig, wearing yuppie clothes, and his dad will surely sue you. bonus points if it is a new diesel that cost half of what my house is worth.
or it's bobby, has a beer gut, ain't shaved in 4 days, has local hunting club hat, always donning crabbing boots, cut off T if warm, otherwise a carharrt, vehicle has seen better days since the year after it's release, and is usually missing 9/10 functioning lights. usually with a "hey bo" rear window decal, and bed full of natty ice cans (tossed in the rear when finished during the drive). vehicle, and driver, always smell like the river. 9/10 times not only is he DUS but DUI.
I was out for a bike ride today. Saw a fairly new Ram pickup that looked like it had the Carolina lean. Then I realized that the bed was completely full of pea gravel. I was glad it was. I don't like the look. Not that it matters to someone that does.
