Dateline NBC exposes the dangers of "lifted vehicles", i.e. trucks that are jacked up higher than the manufacturer specifications, using aftermarket kits. The kits allow an owner to raise the vehicle's body two to sixteen or more inches off the ground. Raising the bumper height looks "cool" but increases the chance of an accident 11 times.
