    I think that is a little out of date. In Iowa, you can go to 13' 6" tall & 102" wide. Our lift laws were repealed, as lifted trucks are not a problem here.

    I don't know if it's out of date or not. It's the only place I know of on the internet that covers all the states. If you want the exact information, then call your closest state police office. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    (b) This Section shall not apply to street rods, custom
    19 vehicles, motor vehicles designed or modified primarily for
    20 off-highway purposes while such vehicles are in tow or to
    21 motorcycles or motor driven cycles, nor to motor vehicles
    22 registered as antique vehicles when the original design of
    23 such antique vehicles did not include bumpers.

    Wonder if that includes us?

    I knew about 27/29. I think it takes about 6" and 35s to reach the limit.

    I had a 6 inch BDS lift in front with shackle flip and 2 inch springs with a 1" zero rate in the rear with 35x12.5x15 swamper SSR's on my first blue and white blazer that was my daily driver and I was about 1/2" to high in the front and rear. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Just in case someone wanted something to compare to.

    I'm just going to put a 1 ton cab on my truck. GVWR = 9,200. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Although I believe you'd need 10,000 lb license plates to take advantage of the lift height.

    Either way I've never had the cops hassle me and I'm a couple inches over.
