Americans say marijuana is banned
to help the alcohol industry, but maybe the
real reason weed is banned is to boost the
private prison industry.

Re: Why Are Pickup Trucks Ridiculously Huge? Blame Government.
A big reason we don’t see little trucks anymore is because of the CAFE standard which was enacted in 1975

It basically said that car builders had to increase mpg year over year with their current car/truck models. Meaning each year new unchanged models must get better mpg than the previous year

However there was a loophole, if the car builder increased the footprint of the car their required annual model mpg increase was negated, hence bigger vehicles

If the little chevy luv truck was still produced today and was the original footprint size it would be required to get over 100 miles per gallon

If the 2006 Dodge Ram p/u was made today with the same footprint it would be required to get 35 mpg…..

You know damned well most of them aren't actually using them for their intended purpose. Minitrucks of the 80s and 90s to early 00s were perfect for doing actual trucking. Plus they're small and look fucking sweet. Give me a Nissan hardbody, Yota, Datsun, Mazda, or a Ford Ranger any day over some ugly shit like the new Tundra, Titan, Chevy, or most ford's. I wish they were an actual body on frame truck not a unibody but I sort of like the Maverick and for real trucks the last body style Tacoma is pretty sweet looking for a new truck. I'd pick one up any time if I wasn't shit broke. I've never owned a car newer than 2003.

Guess what , I don’t know what to do , I can point out where I was on an off-road vehicle map at the road I was on and the cop said “ consider this a warring “ , I am legal . The map can only be described as encouraging.

Now I got that bigass truck of mine that is going to have that sweetass dirtbike in the back and those pussyass motherfuckers are going to have to see more of me .

And you need some truck talk , the absolute most annoying thing about my lifted pickup truck is the fucking radio stations .

YOUR actual trucking, maybe. The needs of the entirety of humanity don't mirror yours. There are too many people like you who presume to declare what somebody else "needs" based on their own. It really isn't your place to decide what somebody else needs. It's tiresome seeing all of you declare that "you don't need ____." That's my decision and individual choice, not yours.

Re: Why Are Pickup Trucks Ridiculously Huge? Blame Government.
White American men know that their culture and country has been broken, is slowly disappearing and that they are being replaced, and big trucks help foster the illusion on their minds that they still have power. It’s the same reason they buy an AR and hang 20 pieces of tacticool junk off of it, effectively turning it into a boat anchor.

Nothing wrong with owning a big truck or an AR, but we really need to see why these things are so prevalent now; it’s because we’re on the downswing, and unfortunately at this point nothings going to stop it

My ‘97 T100 was a full-sized truck back in the day”.

Now it’s like you’re supposed to buy a bigger camper, boat or Side by Side or whatever you can get a loan for. It’s tiresome to even deal with that crap and pay for it all.

I load muh lil’ol Toy till the front tires are barely turning the truck and try not to go far. (Including going to work to pay for it…
