To the owners that like the squat more power to you, haven't seen one in person besides a pre runner.

The people hating on you probably have lifts with 35's and would argue how functional the truck is. I see those guys fighting towing trailers everyday. If you've ever towed with a lifted truck with big tires you'll know what I mean..... its miserable. Its all the same...... major mods to the suspension make the truck a toy, its no longer reliable and functional!

I'm going to "squat" my 79 when I'm done rebuilding, only by an inch or two... 10" of lift just isn't enough lol

Go to Flo-grown, Carolina Squat, Carolina Fords, any of these pages on facebook... I'm stating the fact it came from here.

I've seen lots of different mods and lots of different styles. Many of them do nothing for me, but at least I can understand the thought process behind it, and why the person that did that would like it. But I just can't wrap my head around this, and can't understand the logic. Why is this an improvement? Why does it look good? Why would anyone want a truck that looks like this? To me, it just looks like an overloaded truck with a broken rear suspension.

Maybe it has something to do with the annoying "style" where kids wear baggy pants that are falling down and showing their underwear/butt crack, and they're trying to make their trucks look the same?

I just don't get it, I guess I really am becoming an old fart. I can't think of any benefit (either styling or practicality) but can think of many reasons why it just seems like a plain bad idea.

Not here, this "hater" has a suspension that's bone stock - probably the best compromise for all around functionality (on road, severe weather, hauling, towing, comfort, and mild off-road - in that order of priority)

It didn't "come from here" it came from that useless piece of land known as California,all the kids that had mommy and daddy get them a truck got it from them.

Hey now, no need for the comments about the North.

My take on the squat is to each his own. I'm not personally a fan of it but what you do to your truck has no bearing on me at all. Not really a fan of leveling either. I dont mind lowered on all four corners or lifted on all four corners though.
