lifted trucks

i find it funny, now that the weather has gotten better all these lifted trucks have come out. They are always ten times cleaner then my car and prob have never seen any time off paved roads. Also it seems people are trying to out do everyone around here and there is a truck that i think has semi truck tires on and is so high the bottom is taller then my car. Can't see that being safe or even legal. Just the little thing i noticed. People need to drive their cars or trucks the way they make them and not just for show.
Also, i have no problem with lifted trucks just seems foolish to do it when it is only going to drive on smooth paved roads.
bring the hate

My friend used to have an 88' F350, 5" lift, 35" mud tires. It was always clean, but that is because he would wash it every week after a weekend of mudding.

I'm not a mechanic and even I know that leaving mud to dry on the underside of your car is a no no. So I am assuming they A) Wash them after they use them off-road. and B) Don't off-road every single day of the week.

and lifted truck drivers are saying similar things about those of us that build "race cars" for the street.

so at the end of the day, we're all wrong in each others eyes

My thoughts exactly. I've built almost every type of vehicle out there. In the end it's all about what you enjoy.

Its not like theres tons of places to go off roading around here frequently, so seeing a mudded up lifted truck isnt exactly common. My jeeps lifted 4.5" and on 33''s but doesnt get taken off road every weekend because its simply not that easy. Plus like stated early, leaving your vehicle plastered in mud isnt exactly good for it either.
