    Me and my wife were walking out to my truck after shopping at publix one night. There was an f350 that was HUGE! Im talking 50 inch tires, probably illegal huge.
    I told her when my truck is paid off im gonna lift it like that. She said "why?, my mom and i wouldent be able to get in it" i said
    "thats the point" lol
    (my wife is not fat btw) ;D

    I have always said that the people who do those huge lifts on their trucks are trying to over compensate for other "smaller" things in their lives. That's why I always lower whatever I am driving ;D ;D ;D

    I think a lifted truck is the same thing as a crown vic with big rims.

    Not even comparable. Have you ever seen guys put in on a dirt ramp and have their tailpipe submerged in water? Not this guy ;D Plus, small tires on a full size truck look funny as heck to me...

    I should have clarified lift better. There are some trucks with a slight lift and they look good, usually lifted for better clearance on the trails or to fit aftermarket wheels but not much more than factory. I’m talking about the F250 that’s over lifted to the point that you have to plan on how you are getting into the vehicle. I had a contractor working for me years ago that had a Tundra that was so high the front bumper was level with the hood of my truck. I knew for a fact it he never took that truck off road. The drop in gas mileage compounded with the cost of tire replacement forced him to sell the thing because it was killing his bottom line. I also agree that too small of a tire looks just as bad. Have you seen a lifted truck without the big wheels? That looks really bad.

    If you are getting your tail pipe wet you need a longer trailer tongue not a taller truck.  I saw rims that size for sale on the north side of Jacksonville. I think they were like 2k each. I wonder if you can use an EBT cart to pay the monthly rental payments?
