For Massachusetts, your car cant be 2 inches taller or shorter from when it was sold by the manufacture. Also the car can not exceed 10,000lbs.

Basically, the State will not inspect any vehicle for 1975 or older. 1965 or older vehicles were considered "uncontrolled" vehicles, meaning there were no smog equipment requirements (one of the reasons a '65 Mustang is more desirable in CA than any other 60's model). Even with the inspection exemption for 1975 or older, it is still considered illegal to modify or alter the OEM smog equipment in any way. That doesn't stop people from doing so...just hope you don't get caught. (I had a '67 289c Mustang that I removed the smog pump and air injectors into the heads. Did it to remove the parasitic drag off the engine. Never needed an inspection, so The Man was none the wiser. Put it back on to obtain a certificate when I sold her)

http://dmv.ca.gov/vr/smogfaq.htm

Legally, if you own a 1966 or newer gasoline-powered vehicle, you cannot remove the OEM smog equipment. If you drop in a different motor, it must be of the same year or newer than the vehicle, and must have the OEM smog equipment functioning.

Best of luck. CA smog rules suck arse if you like to modify from stock.

I thought MA had a goofy formula involving wheelbase and track to calculate your max lift...?

Just looked up Texas Transportation codes as of 03 May 2013. Good luck reading them all. http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.u...htm/TN.547.htm

You can start hear at headlamps. Sec. 547.321.
height from 24 to 54 inches.

they do, but it's whichever is greater if I remember correctly. Kind of one of those laws not really enforced, but could fail inspection due to this.

I'm still trying to find MA laws on no bumper cover.

So far I've found the following for Alaska:

http://doa.alaska.gov/dmv/faq/regs.htm

http://www.legis.state.ak.us/basis/folioproxy.asp?url=http://wwwjnu01.legis.state.ak.us/cgi-bin/folioisa.dll/aac/query=[JUMP:'Title13Chap04']/doc/{@1}?firsthit

the above link is a bit wonky, you might have to copy and past the whole thing.

And I'm pretty sure this is the one for Montana:

http://data.opi.mt.gov/bills/mca_toc/61.htm

Not sure if these were posted in the thread somewhere, I was only going by what was posted on the first page.

OK, so I live in oregon, and am going to Utah and Colorado next summer to go wheeling. The links to all 3 states are broken. Looks like someone needs to update the links for at least these three states...
