    Damn! I wish it would be same here but no,2" on supension,3" bodylift and 2" over stock tires(if not modified before -98).That's all you can do in here.Sometimes I really wish that I'd live in U.S.:)

    Holy crap that really sucks is it like that in all of Euorpe? Do they inforce it there? Because here in the US you don't get hassled to much even if it is illegal.

    FYI - There's a handful of anal retentive (mostly newbie) cops with an attitude problem that will drive you nuts on the mudflap thing. Thankfully though, according to ARS Title 28, the law only applies to pickups, not station wagons like we drive. Go to the JP, show your registration, and walk away scot free.

    I forgot who it was, but someone made a good point about the 2 door station wagon thing. They might have lift laws concerning station wagons[​IMG]...

    All legal modifications are marked on the registeration card,tires and engine usually.I went to check one K5 and it had a muffler and max. db specified.That felt kinda stupid.

    I'm too lazy to stick shift,that's why I prefer autotranny.

    I don't know about other European countries,but I think that it's easier in Sweden and Great Britain.We have to take our vehicles to inspection once a year where they check that it's streetlegal condition.

    That German system really sucks,I'm happy that I don't live there.
    Alot of people use little trick on those once a year inspections,they just un-bolt parts that are not "really" legal,lets say tires;Registeration card says 31" is max. so you switch those 35 inchers to 31 and take your truck to inspection.And if everything is OK,35" go back under the truck.That is easy,I've heard that someone had to change engine once a year because it was way too powerfull on his car...but maybe it's just an urban legend.

    Yeah,just found out that maximum gain on 4x4 height is 6 inches.If it has full taxes paid.Otherwise only 4 inches.Well,thats not too bad,basically I could run (if registered w/31 inchers) 35" and 2" suspension lift w/trimming fenders.And maybe 1" body lift.
    But still,I'm pissed!!

    The lift law is indirect in AZ, your headlight s can't be over 54" from the ground. So I suppose if you move your headlights down you can have as much lift as you want. Here's the link for AZ:

    Go down to Chapter 3, equipment.
