flareside is an inverse relationship. With a fleetside truck it goes:
The higher you lift your truck it stays the same amount of good looking

while on the other hand, flareside:
The higher you lift your truck, it gets sexier.

I made a graph because I have too much time.

Your graph is wrong. swap the labels on the graph. Right now, a one foot lifted flareside is equally sexy to a six inch lifted fleetside. And there is no inverse relationships there.

I know, I just threw out some random math term and made an incorrect graph. The point is flareside = awesome and the graph says so.


If you want to think outside of the box though, you'll realize as your truck gets cooler, it becomes more lifted. The graph works two directions!

The graph is 100x correct. I'll be in the back of the school yard if anyone wants to duke it out.

Haha even better. I guess my graph was tailor-made for the rednecks and high school dropouts and your graph was for the educated folk on r-f. I agree 100% with both graphs.
