Whether you like them or hate them they have become a type of nuisance. We are talking about squatting trucks. While they don’t really have any advantages on the road the new trend has taken the truck and car community by storm.
Squatting a truck refers to lifting the front of a truck and lowering or keeping the rear of the truck at the same height. This raises the nose and gives the truck the look that it’s squatting. While the origination of the looks is unknown theDrive pointed out that it could have come from the Baja trucks which raced in the … Baja Desert. No matter where it came from people want it gone.
This is especially true for some lawmakers in North Carolina. Recently the bill passed the North Carolina State House and it is set to go to the Senate. The change was posted on Reddit, which can be read here. Essentially,
A private passenger automobile shall not be modified or altered by elevating the automobile more than 3 inches from the manufacturer’s specified height in the front and lowering the automobile more than 2 inches from the manufacturer’s specified height in the rear.
It’s pretty apparent that they are trying to get rid of the truck stance which is sometimes referred to as the Carolina lean. Others have called it the Cali lean and the Tennessee Tilt. No matter what term floats your boat it seems like this new trend may be dead in the water.
What do you think about North Carolina banning the squatting trucks? Would you ever modify your vehicle like these?
