    Did You know NC\'s new law?

    Well it has just been passed and put into place here in NC. /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif If your vehicle is raised over 2" YOU ARE UNABLE TO PASS A NC STATE INSPECTION. I have just learned of this and figured I would pass it on. Talked to the mechanic on base and said this was due to headlights shining in the back of other vehicles. This is not only affecting us lifted guys but the lowriders as well. If they can't drive over this bump they fail as well. I don't know about you but I am pissed off. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Don't worry about it and just come home. If you've got a windshield, tag and insurance we don't care what you drive. /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif

    Seriously, it sounds like trailer sales are about to go up. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    I'm glad that I moved out of NC years ago. I just have to lower the headlights to max 60" to the centerline. Right now its 61" to the bottom. So here comes the snowplow lights mounted on the bumper in south alabama. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif

    Haven't heard that one. Just got my truck inspected the other day. Hopefully next year my friends shop will still be open for inspections. /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Re: Did You know NC\'s new law?

    Well I am all ready registered in AL but being in the military I have to have a state inspection to get a pass for base. Since AL doesn't have any type of state inspection I have to get an NC state inspection. Converted to AL tags while I was in CA to weasel a way around the smog out there.

    Re: Did You know NC\'s new law?

    I have thought of that but it just don't look right. The snowplow lights will be a lot lower.In the near future I will be getting a new front bumper from DP 90K5 so the lights will have to be mounted on it.

    Re: Did You know NC\'s new law?

    I just got my inspection sticker yesterday with 38s and 6" lift. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif I guess either things travel up the mountain a little slower, or the shops around here just want their $9.10. So, I guess if y'all need inspected and have big meats and a lift, come up here and gitter done. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm a N.C. state inspecter. I have never heard of this law.
    As long as the new headlight aim machines can raise high enough to reach your headlights you will pass.

    I called DMV today and they are looking into the actual lift law for the state. As soon as I hear something I will post it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I tried to look it up online on the NC.gov sites and couldnt find anything.

    SEMA is the specialty Equipment Manufactures Assoc. Basicly the Assoc that almost all aftermarket manufactures are with and it acts to guard their interst by watchdoging unfair laws that would hurt their business. CK5 is a member. http://www.sema.org/main/semaorghome.aspx?ID=/content/SEMAorg/HomePage
    You also need to get on www.sfwda.org and get on their mailing lists as well as www.ufwda.org When junk laws come down that's where your going to hear about it early enough to do something about it.
    Just looked on the SEMA site and they list nothing about NC at this time. The headlight BS in SC was dropped.

    Re: Did You know NC\'s new law?

    Sorry James looks like you've been had by the base NAZI's 2 years ago they said I could not pass because I have mud guards over my headlights now these guards do not impair the lights by no means they actual keep things off of them. But he said anything over the lights will fail you???? O yeah by the way I went out in town to the NC inspector out there and passed just fine he even looked at the headlights and said nice mud covers?? WFT!?!?!?! Our base inspectors make there own rules...

    Re: Did You know NC\'s new law?

    You need to call the DMV and put a complant in about them. Even though they are on Base the inspecters are still mandated by the State. Also get a copy of the state Lift laws and any other laws that might give you problems with getting an inspection.
