you don't need a special sticker or register your truck to b a recovery vehicle. and I'm not saying all cops are right about laws all the time I'm just pretty sure he knows what he's talking about considering he has 5 wranglers and he's also a detective. as for other tow trucks and recovery vehicles they usually belong to a company so they would never want some off chance that a cop doesnt know what he's doing and pull them over they also go for a more professional look rather than the badass look, also I doubt everyone thinks pertruding tires looks good.

It's also a MA General Law that a 4x4 vehicles have a max lift limit of the equation: (wheelbase x wheel track)/2200. <3" depending on the model. Just another one of those things that nobody pays attention to and is rarely enforced.

I was once failed inspection becuase I had 4" suspension lift by an anal inspector.

What if I have a winch do I need flares then? I think your cousin needs to read some laws again.

I thought the same thing but I'm not going to argue with the tool bag
His response was he owns 5 wranglers and is a detective
Well **** I own 9 jeeps total
5 run 4 are parts, and I'm a certified mechanic with over 8 years experience and 2 years of school
But what does that matter
I'm done arguing with know-it-alls
