Arizona lift laws: incase you were wondering...

Arizona allows suspension lifts as long as mud flaps and fenders are used. There is no maximum frame height and no body lift or bumper height restrictions. In addition to suspension lift kits, Arizona residents are free to install aftermarket wheels and tires, performance shocks, aftermarket bumpers, and grill guards.

-Arizona's street legal regulations are listed in the Arizona Revised Statutes. (ARS title 28)

-The maximum vehicle size in Arizona is 102 inches wide, 13 feet 6 inches tall, and 40 feet long for a single vehicle.

- All tires on vehicles driven in Arizona must be in safe operating condition, without any bulges or exposed cords. There is no specific minimum tread depth, and no information on tire grooving.

- Arizona's code makes no reference to wheels, however they do need to be in safe, operational order to be used on highways.

- In Arizona, mud flaps and fenders that cover the full width of the tire and extend down to 8 inches above the roadway are ONLY REQUIRED FOR COMMERCIAL VEHICLES AND PICKUP TRUCKS WITH MODIFIED SUSPENSION SYSTEMS.

- There are no specific suspension lift limits or suspension modification restrictions in the state of Arizona.

- There are no specific frame height requirements in the state of Arizona.

- There are no bumper height requirements in the state of Arizona.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS:

In addition to headlights and tail lights, vehicles in Arizona are allowed to have additional auxillary lights installed. When the vehicle is equipped with extra lighting, the maximum number of lights that can be turned on in the front of the vehicle is (4).

Light Laws:
-Headlights: Minimum (2). // Min height (22 in.) // Max height (54 in.)
-Tail lights: Minimum (1). // Min height (15 in.) // Max height (72 in.)
-Spotlight: Maximum (1). // NA // NA
-Fog lights: Maximum (2). // Min height (12 in.) // Max height (30 in.)
-Aux. passing lights: Maximum (2). // Min height (24 in.) // Max height (42 in.)
-Aux. driving lights: Maximum (2). // min height (16 in.) // Max height (42 in.)






boom.

Very nice to know, I already got a fix-it ticket on my truck for not having mud flaps, so far I'm lucky on my jeep. Thanks for the info.

I already have 3" spacers front and back, The person that built the axles should of made them the same length (you would think) my jeep looks a little pre-runner'ish, which would be OK if it was something other than a jeep. Dose anyone have any 2" 5on5.5 spaces they would like to sale cheep i need 2??

It is good to know all that. At least it isn't like other states where they are so strict it hurts.


And the cops don't really enforce the light laws to much as long as you don't drive down the road with them on
blinding everyone or if you have lights that imitate an emergency vehicle.
Other then that make sure all your normal are working and your fine.

If I'm not mistaken XJ's are exempt from the mudflap law but not TJ's

The language of the laws make XJ's CJ's YJ's TJ's JK's and JK unlimiteds exempt from the mudflaps rule. this goes for grand Cherokees, liberties, patriots and any other jeep suv body style. This is on account that they are legally considered SUV's.

A Comanche for example would be subject to these rules. They would be required to have mudflaps because its classified as a pickup truck rather than an SUV.
