We drive lifted vehicles ourselves. Now, if you were to come down the road with 12 inches of lift sporting 44" tires that might just get you some attention. Especially from the state boys. Even then you'd be likely to only get a warning and be told not to put it back on the road. At least from the cops and troopers that I know. I would go so far as to say most any lift 6" or so running tires even up to say 37"-38" won't be a problem at all and probably won't get a second look much less pulled over and measured. At least around here it won't. We see full size trucks around here like that a lot actually. It's nothing to see one sporting 6" and 36 inch rubber. Just make sure that if you're gonna run it at night you have properly aimed headlights because I can assure you that's the part that will get our attention. Happy jeeping and welcome to Georgia.
Yep, from a cops perspective for over 20 years in a very traffic oriented department, most of the lift laws were because of people taking 10 inch blocks and putting them under the springs on older trucks and jeeps that would slip out and cause a massive wreck. It was a problem when those lifts were on the road, but lifts have changed now and are really well put together and safe, so most of us don't pay that much attention to them. Now if you have a jacked up hoopdee thats all over the road with crap steering and tires chunking rocks everywhere, you might get a talking too......

I agree with you 100% on that comment Dan69. Believe it or not Dan we still have a few of those trucks with exactly that type of homemade put together lift around here. Luckily they don't try and put them on the road. Nice to meet a fellow officer on here. Stay safe, seems more and more are being lost lately. We've senselessly lost 3 in our area in the last 6 months or so in the line of duty.
