    Anyone know what the lift laws are in Arizona? Is there a mudflap law? Do vehicles need any type of annual inspection/sticker?

    Thanks

    You need to go threw emissions testing if you live in the Phoenix Metro area or Tucson area I believe. That is a once a year thing so you can register your vehicle.

    Mudflaps are required on lifted pickup trucks. Blazers do not need them because the are classified station wagons by the state. You may get pulled over and harrassed if you have an obvious lift and large tires on a Blazer, but you should be able to beat the ticket if the cop gives you one.

    As for lift height requirements, I don't know. They may have laws but they are not enforced very hard if at all. If you move to AZ and are going threw inspection you might have problems. I see some insanly tall trucks in AZ and they get away with it.

    SuperSize75 on here ran around with 10" lift and 38's and didn't have a problem. I see Superduty's with huge lifts and 44's all the time. I even saw a new Chevy with the 49" Iroks at a car show, and it didn't come in on a trailer that I know of.

    Thanks for the info guys. I've been to Flagstaff, Phoenix, and Casa Grande and really like it in Arizona, I think it would be great to move there. Maybe New Mexico would work too, in the "laws list" link they don't have many restrictions.

    Im not sure if the laws on the custom truck site are accurate. When I was talking to a CHP about the laws he told me differrent from what the site says, but hey, just go ask your local law....if they know!

    Yea, I remember that particular listing of lift laws coming out about 20 + years ago. Chances are some things have changed some since then, but that list of lift laws seems to be the only one out there circulating the magazines and the web.

    The info for Illinois is accurate but not complete. They also measure from the ground to your frame at a point halfway between the axles, and if you have custom bumpers or raised bumpers they will measure to the frame instead of the bumper. I've ran 10" of lift with 40's (about 8" illegal) and never had a problem though.
