Same here, mommy and daddy money or around here we have several that have a diesel pickup that the probably paid 40g for, put 20k or more into it, as and they live in a barely habitable shack or old broken down trailer.
Recently one of the locals that have a bro dozer had a condemned sticker slapped on the front door by the health department. It takes alot to get to that point around here..... they must have spent all of thier money on pickup trucks and forgot your house should have water..... but if your going to haul water to your shack might as well do it in a diesel bro dozer because if not are you really "country"?
I actually think the front only lift is on purpose. At least I have seen quite a few of the bro trucks done that way. Perhaps like you said they run out of money but I have seen enough of them to think otherwise.There was someone up the road from me who had a bro'd out F250 (aluminum truck , so new). 40'' tires on 20'' wheels. Apparently they could only afford to lift the front. But the truck was taller than the shack they were living in!
Priorities I guess.
If a squat truck notices, you will have a clapped out 4.8L with no cats loudly going "BLAAAAT POP POP" next to you. If you don't race them, they will weave into your lane.My 981 burbles and pops occasionally on downshifts. I kinda like it, comes this way stock from factory.
Deleting emissions equipment is illegal. Yes, plenty of people do it, and if you aren't obnoxious about it, nobody is probably going to care
Yeah, some people think its cool to do it at a hybrid or a convertible. Its a shame too because they either dont realize or just dont care that all they are doing is creating negative public perception towards diesels and theyre going to get regulated out of existence or just outright banned one day.I'm sure many of you are familiar with "rolling coal"-where basically diesel pickups are modified so that either on-demand or during acceleration they belch big thick clouds of black smoke.
I had one today that was a new one on me. It was a nice day, and I was out tooling around on some country roads at 45-55 topless in the MG-in other words perfect timing and conditions for it.
I went through a small town, and as we're leaving two lanes merge into one. I'm in the left lane(which is the one that "continues" rather than merging, if that makes sense), and ahead of me in the right lane is a lifted "Brodozer"
I slowed down and motioned for the driver to get over, which they did without hesitation. It was lifted enough that my car could have nearly fit under it, and frankly I'd rather them in front of me than behind.
In any case, the truck gets over, and the next second I'm enveloped in a cloud of soot that's coming from the truck's tailpipe. I can't see, I'm coughing, and when things finally clear there's gray/black soot EVERYWHERE on me and the car.
No idea what I did to provoke that, but it's the first time I've had someone direct this stupid practice at me personally. Aside from being a nuisance, it's frankly dangerous, or at least I felt it in that situation.
Unfortunately, unless the police catch them(yes, my state does have a law against it) I'm guessing there's nothing that can be done.
I can't say I haven't been tempted to puff the random Prius hogging the fast lane at 55mph.Yeah, some people think its cool to do it at a hybrid or a convertible.

Every time Ive seen someone roll coal at a Prius, the Prius was either sitting at a stoplight or they did it for no reason when the light turned green. Im yet to see someone do it for any other reasons than to just be a jerk.I can't say I haven't been tempted to puff the random Prius hogging the fast lane at 55mph.
However - my strength is the strength of 10, because my heart is pure.
Looking forward - it'll be roll coalers who are slapped down.
OTR trucks that feed North 'Merkah, not so much.

What will happen is that anything smaller than a medium duty it will simple be regulated out of existence. Anything smaller than medium duty will be forced to meet emissions, just like everything else does and for diesels thats probably not realistic. IMO, hybrid trucks and going to make diesels obsolete and irrelevant anyways but the coal rollers certainly arent going to help the situation.
It's a game with coal rollers it seems.
Lots of these kind of videos on YouTube.
