This is the only link you need I believe. Did some more reading and this covers what Jeepers need to know.

Here's a more complete statute list for Connecticut

Of course, it's a bit vague on everything.
Sec. 14-104. Fenders and other wheel protectors. (a) No person shall operate on any public highway any motor vehicle with a passenger or commercial registration which is not equipped with fenders on all wheels which come into contact with the highway unless the body of the vehicle or attachments thereto afford adequate protection to effectively minimize the spray or splash of water or mud to the rear of the vehicle.
Sec. 14-99f. Windshield. Obstruction of view. (a) Each motor vehicle shall be equipped with a windshield of a type prescribed by section 14-100 and a windshield cleaner or wiper in effective working order located directly in front of the operator while in use on the highway. The windshield shall be reasonably free of defects and accumulations, inside and out, of snow, ice, condensation and dirt. The provisions of this subsection shall not apply to a motorcycle or a vehicle designed by the manufacturer for nonhighway operation without a windshield.
I couldn't find anything regarding ride height or lifts etc. The fender portion is VERY vague, and the windshield portion doesn't exactly exclude folding the windshield down, but I'm no lawyer...
