    No lift over 7" and no tires over 34".
    Guess you'll have to stay out.

    What is the law and what is on the streets is 2 different things. People around here, Pensacola, run 12" lifts with 44" all the time. There is a sanctioned mud bog race pit here and 90% of the contestants drive their rigs to and from. It may be the law, but I'd guess that they don't usually enforce it in the more rural areas

    Measure your lift and make sure it's an 8" and that it hasn't sank to the seven........

    I agree. Last weekend a couple of clubs got together for a Labor day weekend trail ride in an area we have been going to for years. On Saturday we headed out and when going through the small town nearby a cop was flagging over lifted trucks. Two of my friends got illegal bumper height tickets on trucks they have been driving for 3 years with the same lift and tire size, and had never been pulled over before. This cop also flagged down three or four other trucks that weren't with our group during this time. He wouldn't even let them drive them back to the campgrounds so they had to go back and borrow trailers to haul them. The bad thing is that my friends trucks really are not that big (36" tires and about 6" lift) compared to what you see around here on a regular basis. We talked to some locals and they said this guy was new to the force and had been writing people up for all types of nit-picky violations since he came to the area.

    They used to bust us ALL the time for a while but they have pretty much let it go now. The town south of me, they bust all the big trucks still so I and everyone I know, just stay outta there.


    Like Rob said whats the law and whats on the road is 2 different things.

    What part of Fla are you considering moving to??
