I drive a diesel but my wife has a Prius. Say what you want but dont knock it till you try it. Filling up for less than 20.00 and driving almost 500 miles sure is nice. Yes we get dirty looks and deal with crazy people showing out but we know we aren't stopping at every gas station

Kind of like the light bars.
I know it is their money but when it has an effect on others it is BullShit...

I've had no problems with the light bars, but at least 2-3 times a week on the way home from work I have issues with the headlights on squatted trucks. There's usually not enough adjustment to aim them correctly with the tail end so low, so at the lowest setting they end up shining into the faces of oncoming drivers or into the cab/mirrors of drivers that they're behind. This is a real issue that is aggravating at best, flat out dangerous at worst.

And for the record, I'm only 35, but I do appreciate being able to see the road.

I get blinded at least once a week in Tramway and see at least 1 a day on my commute.

Call it what you will...
BTW from DMV the light bars are not legal on the road as with the Squatting trucks.
But they said they have too many other things to worry with.

Both are a problem. Both are dangerous.

I got no squat! I agree it looks foolish but my point was why do you care ? It's their money their truck.
Cause it looks really "stoopid" and things that look really stoopid get talked about . Lol. There is a story behind the word "stoopid"...pretty funny. Rofl....

Best I can remember one of the things that an annual inspection is supposed to check is the alignment of the headlights, so if they are not pointed down that should be addressed at the inspection. I emphasize the word "should".

Just my opinion, but the "Carolina squat" is just about the most stupid, impractical, and dangerous wastes of money I've ever seen! How in the devil can you see to even park one of those things correctly? Don't know if it's true or not, but a co-worker told me that a kid ran over a woman in a Wal-Mart parking lot over in Lumberton because he couldn't see her.

The only "Carolina squat" you'd likely catch me in is out in the woods...like a bear!
