Question

I'm a newbie and I'm a fellow Wisconsinite. I just have two questions.

Do you register an LJ wrangler as a truck or a car?
and
How up tight are Wisconsin cops on lift kits?
My plan is to do a 6" lift with 35" tires

I think as long as you have a back seat you can register it as a car and save a few bucks in the process.

I run a 3 1/2 lift and 6 inch Xenon extenders over 33 X12.50 tires and have never had any problems with the police. I know there are some bumper height requirements and how much tire can be hanging out of the fender but I don't know the exact numbers... Usually the local boys won't mess with you its the State Police you have to look out for.

under 3" from the fender is legal, cops typicly dont do anything about lifts except if it crazy and unsafe looking

Wisconsin Lift Laws | Vehicle Modification Rules

This is were I'm getting my info from on lift laws. So I'm still debating which lift I want to use. I could get a 6" lift and be 1" over the limit or get a 4.5" and fender flairs and be safe.

The only reason I wanted to register it as a truck is because you can only raise car bumpers 2" from stock bumper height (the correct wording is in the link). I am not a lawyer and I don't know how to interpret that.

Thanks for the info though.

Back when I had my 00 TJ sahara, it was automatically registered as a truck. My Liberty was automatically considered a wagon! haha

I would just say go for the truck if you have the option. It isn't going to save you that much money to register as a car, the bigger difference is year, and it will likely eliminate that legal question if need be. I also don't think you'll have an issue, but if you're worried about the law, go ask your local PD, they will certainly tell you what they look for!

Cant believe I havent said hello...

Im from Viroqua, near Lacrosse WI. No place to offroad - luckily it floods here all the time so that offers some fun. I might head up to the Pipeline before we get lots of snow on the ground...
