Perhaps because the link in the first reply gives lift laws for most states?

It will cut down on people asking what lifts are legal in their states. They won't find it by searching since the title is about Mass. Maybe retitle the thread as Lift Laws by State and re-sticky...

I'm moving.

WYOMING

There are no official statutory gidelines for bumper height, frame height, rear blocks, or shakle lifts - all laws refering to these alterations say the vehicle must simply be in "safe" working condition.

West Virginia is incorrect also. They recently changed the body lift law to; no body lifts at all.

Massachusetts -- For a Rubicon the formula is 93.4 w/b X 59.5 w/t = 5557/2200 (the safety factor) = 2.5" max lift according to the Truckworld link above.

Where to measure bumper height from?

I read this somewhere, but can't find again, good info to have here anyway...


Where do they measure bumper height from??

and does this vary by state, or mood of the guy with the ruler??

it should be known that in PA, that if you get your vehicle classed as a modified vehicle (which is nearly impossible) you can get around those particular statutes. It's a fact not many people seem to know.


Quote:
Vehicles materially altered by the modification (customizing), without altering the original make will be issued a certificate
of title listing the original make, vehicle identification number and model year of the vehicle. The title will show an “M” brand
for modified vehicle. Vehicles modified by using a glider kit with an ownership document of certificate of title or
Manufacturer Certificate of Origin also fit into this category, however, no model year will be listed on the certificate of title.
All modified vehicles must be equipped as required by the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code and the Equipment and Inspection
Regulations for the proper body type of the vehicle. No exceptions can be made, since modified vehicles are required to
pass the safety inspection program. The following items are required for a modified vehicle application:

❖ Form MV-1, “Application for Certificate of Title.” Form MV-1 is not needed if the Pennsylvania Certificate of Title is
already in the name of the applicant. NOTE: Issuing agents are prohibited from issuing temporary registration plates
or transferring a registration in conjunction with an application for a modified vehicle title. Issuing agents should
remind applicants that the vehicle cannot be operated until the application is processed and registration plates are
issued or transferred by the Department.

❖ Form MV-4, “Pennsylvania Certificate of Title,” or an out-of-state certificate of title. NOTE: Non-repairable or for
parts only certificates of salvage, certificates of title or manufacturers certificate of origin for three-wheel or fourwheel
all terrain vehicles (ATV’s) or a New York 907A form are not acceptable for a modified title application.

❖ Form MV-426, “Application for Reconstructed, Specially Constructed or Modified Vehicle.” (See Form MV-426B for
detailed instructions.)

❖ Four (4) color photos of the vehicle are required - front, both sides, and rear of the vehicle. If the vehicle is a
motorhome, additional interior photographs are required. (See Form MV-426B for detailed instructions on
photographs.)

❖ Bill of Sale and other receipts for parts purchased and used in restoration must be submitted.

❖ All applicable fees and taxes.

❖ If a Pennsylvania state replacement vehicle identification number (VIN) plate is required, Form MV-41 (Application
for Correction of Vehicle Record) must be completed and attached.
they go on to quote suspension lifts and other stuff...

in MA you can only mod it to 2" over stock height or 2" under stock height. Woops looks like im illegal, and my dads the chief of police in my town

Tires cant stick out the sides either, which leads me to a story haha.....

So i go to get my jeep inspected (2000 wrangler, 3" lift, 32x11.50s). My tires stick out about 1.5-2". So the guys doin his thing, checkin lights and whatnot, and when hes done he backs my jeep outa the garage and gives me my reg back along with my $1 change ($29 inspection, gave him $30). I havent seen if he passed it or not but the color sticker for this year in MA is red, as is a regection sticker. So i see the red and think i failed cause of my tires. Then the guy comes up and whispers to me 'put a little shallower dish wheels on that and itll be almost legal' hands me my reg and $1 and i get into my jeep and get ready to leave when i notice a $20 bill stuck to the back of my $1 bill. So i think to myself 'damn i wanna keep this $20 thats like gas money for about a day . But i gave it back to the guy and told him it was stuck, afterall, he passed me and it didnt have to.
