    Cool truck.

    I wasn't bashing anyone's choices btw. Mods are cool and gives our trucks a unique personality. I hope people don't take what I was saying the wrong way. I just see this often where people bash or put down someone else's ride because it has mods that won't be used, etc..Reality check time.

    What if it's a guy that just likes big trucks? Is there something wrong with that?

    Because it's all a matter of degree.

    Once a truck is lifted that high, it's no longer practical or safe for street use.

    Reasonable minds may differ about what level of lift and tire size crosses the line from "prudent and safe" into "impractical and unsafe for street use." But THAT thing is long gone on the other side.

    Run it off road, mud pits, mud trials, or at arena monster truck events all you want. Have fun. Knock yourself out and maybe I'll even buy a $20 ticket to see the madness. :cool:

    But don't drive the m10r on the same streets as me.

    Well by that logic, then every Corvette, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche...or any other fast car for that matter should be taken off the street as well. Because, they are just too fast for people to handle and we shouldn't be allowed to have them.

    While they are at it, they should get rid of all sportbikes too. I mean, those things have the power to weight ratio of some indy cars and are just WAAAYYY too dangerous :rolleyes:

    I guess your custom user title is well deserved if you can't make the connection.

    That's a stupid comparison. Missing the point that regardless of their capabilities of wildly illegal speeds, those cars are all street legal. This truck has tons of safety infractions that make it not remotely legal. With that logic ban all guns. They are legal but you can kill someone with one.

    Awesome how small the 20s look though.

    Your logic is flawed, a Ferrari, Lamborghini, Porsche, and road bike can all be driven slow based on driving style. The truck cannot be lowered by driving differently. The truck could be sitting at a dead stop and if someone hits him the height of the truck can become a danger. You ever wonder why semi trucks have that thing hanging down at the rear of the trailer? Or would you rather be decapitated?

    We should also ban pencils because we have more death by pencils each year than England has with handguns

    My logic is not flawed, my point is what is the level of "safe" defined by? What's more dangerous, this truck rolling down the street at 50, or a car ripping at 120? Or a motorcycle tearing it up at 100+? Of course, this all comes down to the operator in the end, but you see what I'm getting at...

    Defined by driving and the way its driven, or operated as you say. The truck is dangerous even while it sits at a stop light, or parked on the side of the road as the photo depicts. That would be your flaw

    Your missing it, the truck is dangerous to other motorists even if its not driving. And road signs are not in the middle of the road, this truck is

    Yes, your logic is flawed. You're comparing apples to oranges.

    There's nothing unsafe about a sports car. The unsafe part is the mental midget behind the wheel. There's nothing unsafe about a sports car parked.

    That ford-fuck-fiftey on the other hand IS unsafe parked...as JD already pointed out.
