fantomas Here's a more complete statute list for Connecticut

Of course, it's a bit vague on everything.
Sec. 14-104. Fenders and other wheel protectors. (a) No person shall operate on any public highway any motor vehicle with a passenger or commercial registration which is not equipped with fenders on all wheels which come into contact with the highway unless the body of the vehicle or attachments thereto afford adequate protection to effectively minimize the spray or splash of water or mud to the rear of the vehicle.
Sec. 14-99f. Windshield. Obstruction of view. (a) Each motor vehicle shall be equipped with a windshield of a type prescribed by section 14-100 and a windshield cleaner or wiper in effective working order located directly in front of the operator while in use on the highway. The windshield shall be reasonably free of defects and accumulations, inside and out, of snow, ice, condensation and dirt. The provisions of this subsection shall not apply to a motorcycle or a vehicle designed by the manufacturer for nonhighway operation without a windshield.
I couldn't find anything regarding ride height or lifts etc. The fender portion is VERY vague, and the windshield portion doesn't exactly exclude folding the windshield down, but I'm no lawyer...

This is the only link you need I believe. Did some more reading and this covers what Jeepers need to know.

Here is the KS statute link. There are two different articles regarding equipment etc.

Ratmeat 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...

icbm99 So far I've found the following for Alaska:[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:

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

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.
