    The truck is almost legal. The headlights are over the max. of 54". I plan on mounting snow plow lights on the bumper to make it legal. I haven't got a ticket for it being too high but I have been pulled over in my 91 blazer that was lifted with 44" boggers. The cop told me the max frame height was 30" :mad: Ther is no law about the frame height in Alabama He did not give me a ticket. :grin:

    I bought my truck with one and am in progress of taking it out (and selling it) in favor of a much lower, more flexible suspension.

    12" suspension, 3" body, 38.5" swampers.
