To the world of ridiculous lifted vehicles: You have a new king. It's this 2013 Chevy Tahoe that's currently for sale at West Coast Auto Sales Center in Sacramento -- and it somehow has done 42,000 miles.

I say "somehow" because, well, look at it. The Tahoe is already a fairly tall SUV from the factory, and then there's ... this. This truck has a 12-in lift, which truly makes it look like a massive monster truck. It also looks like it could roll over at any second, because 12 inches of lift is absolutely absurd. TWELVE INCHES! LOOK AT THIS THING! There are young humans, humans who can speak, talk and possibly even go to the bathroom by themselves, who could fully stand up under this truck.

Which brings me to the next interesting thing about this Tahoe: Despite the ridiculous lift kit and a few other small cosmetic details, it appears to have no other modifications. It looks like the grille has been changed, the headlights have been changed, it's an extra foot off the ground, and that's it. The interior, for example, looks absolutely factory stock, as if it hasn't undergone a single upgrade despite the massive ride height changes and, ya know, the blue wheels.

The other interesting thing about this is a 2013 Tahoe isn't exactly a cheap car. You usually see massive lifts like this on aging pickups, because the kind of people who add a 12-in lift aren't usually the kind of people who can afford to buy a new vehicle -- but this thing is still valuable. In fact, it's offered for sale for $44,888, though I suspect at least some portion of that is due to the added ground clearance.

Maybe most impressive is the fact that this Tahoe has 42,000 miles on the odometer, despite looking like it would blow over in a stiff breeze. Or maybe just if someone walked up and kicked it pretty hard. Kudos to whoever has driven 42,000 miles in this SUV. Kudos to whoever buys it next.
