That site that you linked is just to buy the Laws as if you where a lawer. The 3rd party link that i posted was the only place that I could find the laws online. The DMV is suppose to have them digitally but with the local govt here nothing really works the way its suppose to.

Maryland

Not sure if its been posted before, but heres a link to Maryland vehicle laws.

http://michie.lexisnexis.com/marylan...main-h.htm&cp=


On the left side, click the Maryland Code folder, then Transportation, then TITLE 22. Vehicle Laws--Equipment of vehicles

based on what I read there, us Marylanders are supposed to have at least the drivers sideview mirror.

540 CMR: MASSACHUSETTS REGISTRY OF MOTOR VEHICLES

(1) No motor vehicle shall be altered or modified in any way that may
cause the vehicle body or chassis to come in contact with the roadway,
expose the fuel tank to damage from collision, or cause the tires to come
in contact with the body, chassis, or steering components under normal
operation. The horizontal plane, front to rear, shall not differ more than
two inches.

(1) The maximum mechanical lift for four wheel drive motor vehicles
shall be calculated by multiplying the wheel base times the wheel track,
and dividing the product by a safety factor of 2200:
i.e., 92" w/b x 58" w/t = 5336/2200 = 2" (maximum mechanical lift).
The outside diameter of the largest tire size available from the original
manufacturer as standard or optional equipment for the particular motor
vehicle may also be increased up to an amount equal to the maximum
mechanical lift calculated.

Links please

[QUOTE=Mooman]540 CMR: REGISTRY OF MOTOR VEHICLES
540 CMR 6.00: ALTERATION OF MOTOR VEHICLE HEIGHT
Section
6.01: Purpose
><snip><

please do not include the full text of anything, this is not the point and is not nearly as helpful as the links that i can include in the main posts on the front page.

You also did not mention what state this was for that i see. If this is for a state that has not been done (check in the first few posts for all the state links), then i welcome the info and would like them just as links. You can read all the details in the first post of the why and how of this project.

Thanks for pitching in.

There is no link. I found this info by searching for days and days. I also spoke with many a trooper. I edited it down to the actual meaningfull words. Just thought I'd make it easy and put it in plain english.

Your from washington so you should be knowledgable about the laws here. I have a cherokee and would it be legal for me to lift it as much as 6" and put on 32X11.5's with stock fender flares? I couldnt find anything about lifts and tire widths anywere in the link

Thanks, Nick

Nothing for the most part, the only rules being that the minimum height for your headlights is 15" and max being 72". Thanks

Thanks, Nick
its all in the Washington revised code, just do a little reading,

things that relate to this particular question are

RCW 46.37.500
Fenders or splash aprons.
some height considerationshere
RCW 46.37.040
Head lamps on motor vehicles.

that will get you started.

there was a part that dealt with types of suspensions (no big budget boosts) but i can find it, it looks like the code has been updated since last time i gave it a good read.
