I like texas the only law is how high the lights are!

Quote:
Laws concern lighting but not bumper height or even lift blocks.

Washington
You can lift your truck in Washington without fear, as long as the kit is manufactured by an aftermarket company and is designed for your make and model of truck, as well as installed the right way. You know this already, right? Right? Body lifts can't use more than a 3-inch spacer and are not allowed to raise the body more than 4 inches above the frame, after all the components are installed. For more information, check out www.washington.gov.


Woohoo!! *cheers* you all suck! haa!

Wanna know Wyoming and supposedly Colorado's?

"Must be in safe working condition" haha
Quote:
Wyoming
There are no official statutory guidelines for bumper height, frame height, rear blocks, or shackle lifts-all laws referring to these alterations say vehicles must simply be in "safe" working condition.
but yea.. in Texas.. i dont know if its realistic to make a ranger big enough to break a lift law lol.... if you do its one of those huge ugly ****'s

haha build as in weld or build as in buy everything and weld?

i'll most likely have to take mine off because i'll be using leaves and the skid will get in the way.. do you have the coolant lines coming off the bottom of the radiator?

i can just sell you mine and put it on or have someone put it on probably

Did you have these lines to work around? What did you do? There is a big sheet of aluminum at work I might try to get.

i did't have those.. how far below the frame do they go?
i THINK casey's is a little deeper than mine.. but he doesnt have a body lift.. if you take the shroud off you can lift the radiator up some...
