Those aren't rednecks, rednecks use their trucks, not have useless trucks.

So.....I can only assume none of y’all did anything as a teenager, that now seems stupid. Lol

I don’t have a squated truck but understand fads and as a 43yr old what it was like to be a teenager

To the guys saying it’s a rich kid thing....lol. You have know idea what you’re talking about!

​​​​​​I did plenty of stupid stuff, but I didn't put my stupidity on display and drive it around. This is a whole other level of "stupid teenager".

Back around 1960-1970 there were many cars you would see that the front ends or rear ends were either raised or lowered. It was not a uncommon sight.

It's not my thing but I really don't care what someone else does with their truck or money.

I like and encourage folks to express themselves in ways like this. It's a visual sign that tells me a lot about them, without having to invest a single bit of time or effort.. Not everything I want/need to know, but enough to give me a general idea of their personality and decision making ability.

Yes, me too, if you see something different from what you like just go on the internet and call them Ridiculous, redneck, wanna be redneck, idiot, rich kids, dumbass, white trash and don't have to know a thing about them except they like something that you don't.

what’s wrong with shift work?!?

I made almost 100,000 last year working shift work. Not bad for a Redneck. Put that in you’re pipe and smoke it.

I've seen people do that.... AND unload their lumber in intersections when the light turned green. Happened to a friend.

I'm not a fan of the look but I keep it to myself. I have air bags on my GT500 and all the old timers at car shows would look down their noses and say something like "you can't drive it like that!" That judgmental bs got old quick. I just started saying "well it got here somehow?" Now I don't even bother with them, I just drive around their 300 or 400 hp classics like they're in reverse. I still love their classics, I just don't like the prick driving it. Times change gentlemen.

I didn't say there was anything wrong with it. I make more than that and I'm on a 12-hour night shift right now; a white collar, air conditioned shift but shift work all the same. I'm wearing a polo shirt and topsiders too and at one time had a 8 handicap; never did dip though. Who said my description was negative?

Okay? I know lots of tradesmen who make that. Plumbers, electricians, welders, etc. I think it is great.

I don't think posing as a redneck, for those that grew up in the suburbs with a lawyer or a developer (for example) for a parent, is cool.
