    Inspired by the how not to get pulled over question from another post :D

    I googled maine lift laws and found a couple little pieces of info. Probably not the whole laws on lifts but who knows.

    Maine


    Headlights: Don't even think about going higher than 54 inches. However, keep in mind that the original suspension cannot be "disconnected", but don't let that stop you from bolting on heavy-duty shocks and overload springs. Other need-to-knows: Don't remove or disconnect the ABS, and the tires can be only two sizes larger than the manufacturer's recommendation. Spring-shackle extensions are also a no-no.

    Also shackle lifts are illegal as well as rear blocks. <4500 lbs GVWR front frame no higher than 24" and rear no higher than 26" 4501-7500 GVWR front 27" and rear 29"

    :( not much to work with there... :dunno:

    What really stinks about the current Maine lift laws is that you can NOT change the tire size of any abs equipped vehicle. This law has been in affect for years, but the State Police have just recently (last couple of years) started enforcing it. There is a pretty big effort under weigh right now to try and get the law chaged...we'll see what happens.

    I guess this another good reason to drive old junk here in Maine :grin:
