Everyone needs a 10′ tall truck in Florida

Recently on vacation in Florida, I noticed a strange phenomenon.  Every 4th or 5th truck sports a 4-10″ lift and 35+ inch tires.  What gives?

In a state with nothing but flat land and paved roads going everywhere, the lifts and oversize tires would seem to yield nothing more than reduced fuel economy, poorer handling, and a big ole’ dent in the wallet.  Maybe it’s the crazy snowfall in the winter. . wait no that can’t be it.

I drive a truck myself, and while I’ll admit the “lifted” look is nice on a lot of trucks, in a state like Florida, I think I’d find a different way to express myself.
