Are those standards up to date? I think it was changed to two inches over stock this last October. And I think it can count as a moving violation and the police can tow your truck since they feel it is unsafe. So lift at youur own risk. I know someone with a yota pickup, 6inch lift with 33's. He has been pulled over twice and will have his truck impounded if he is caught again. It is the State Police you have to look out for.

MA is the gay state.

I was in my law and justice classes and asked my prof who is a police officer, and he said that any changes from stock is illegal, but 95% of cops wont pull you over for it.

Glad to be in FL where they just put a maximum bumper height and headlight height.

There is a guy who brings his F250 to tail gates. It's lifted 18" and he has 52" bias ply tires on it. But, with his on road drop down bumper and using the fog lights as "head lights" he passes all FL laws. He even carries the book with the FL statute in his truck incase some hot shot cop wants to be an *******.
