i like the truck..i'm just over the lifts. well, the mega lifts. i kicks me square in the math when i see those guys make up with it with the big 18" drop hitch to pull the boats..that is a lot of leverage!

This is just one parking area of hundreds around the area .



I like your boss's new ride. It would fit right in , in this area .
Thanks for the support guys. Thanks for looking.

No issues from me!



Though mine looks pretty puny in comparison. I haven't weighted the new boat and trailer yet, but it's at least 8,000 lb. The Ecoboost pulls it at 75 MPH without breaking a sweat. Good luck doing that with a Honda Ridgeline. I do it every weekend, all summer.

In Georgia, the law states that the bumper height can't be changed more than a few inches without raising or lowering the bumpers to stock height. Unfortunately, it is seldom enforced. However, because the law is on the books, it can be used against a driver that is involved in a collision with another vehicle. The seriously lifted trucks can/will simply ride up over a normal vehicle making the chance of serious injury to the other vehicles occupants much greater. If/when I ever get hit by one of these high riders, I will sue his socks off!

if one of those trucks rides over your normal vehicle I highly doubt you will be suing them.........

I like all the small dick and short man comments coming from the Porsche community...
These are work trucks that in many cases spend a considerable time off road and in remote places (not all do, but there are a lot that do)
If your going to haul a lot of weight, tow a lot of weight or get into remote places these trucks make complete sense.

surely you aren't suggesting lifts and bigger tires (we'll ignore the wigger wheels) help with hauling and towing?

I think you will find large tires to be more suitable in a lot of off road and difficult access to be of help. OTOH is the unchanged height of the axles, diffs, and other suspension parts. I don't care how high the body is, the rear diff height is still a function of the tire diameter. So unless you are building Big Foot, your diff is one of the lowest parts on teh chassis.

Obviously some portal axles are in order.

Portal axles — I don't see any on the trucks pictured here. Lots of ridiculous lifted trucks here in the city but none that are worth a s╟!τ for serious rough country work.

In case you didn't catch it, the body shell pictured above is the one from 1st picture and the grayish truck (pic #48) is the rebodied new ride almost ready for the body shop, so it's coming along quite well as it only gets worked on when the shop isn't too busy with real work.

I'll get you all a final picture when it's all done. If you're still interested, that is.

Seriously? You can tackle basically any trail on the planet without portal axles. I was joking.

I need a truck..... one w/normal sized tires...My brother loves his company-provided-GMC & he hated the Ford that they stuck him with last year. They are not filled with options, so he gets the stripped down models .. This tires just say: 'Bad gas mileage' to me... Better have a good reason for 'em and access to cheap fuel..
