what is the pa lift law.

I have been trying to figure out the PA lift law. i keep see for 5k lb trucks and up and the bottom of the bumper has to be at 30 inches or lower. so what is the law for the smaller trucks?

Is there a head light law?

I may be wrong, but is GVWR including what you tow, or is it the other way around? I thought GVWR for a Ranger was more than 5k....

GVWR is gross vehicle weight rating

A gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) is the maximum allowable total weight of a road vehicle or trailer when loaded - i.e including the weight of the vehicle itself plus fuel, passengers, cargo, and trailer tongue weight.

woo hoo no lift laws for NC!
