    Where can I find lift laws for individual states? I would like to find every states' and compare them. I know you can search on google for lift laws and it gives you this one site that compiled some but I would prefer to make sure I have th emost up to date ones from the state preferably. Don't need to get pulled over cause some website some guy put together to be helpful was wrong.

    i know www.customtruckshowcase.com has one, but im not sure of the last time it was updated. Alotta the laws sound goofy on it, but thats about how most laws are. Best bet would be called the DOT or DMV in your state to be really sure.

    customtruckshowcase.com was the site I was reffering to in my post. It looks pretty good but I am not sure as of the last time it was updated.

    One thing to consider is that your Blazer may be considered a station wagon, which would make it a CAR not a TRUCK. I got popped on that technicality a few yrs ago. Cars have different height limits in some states. I even had my bumpers 1in lower than the law called for, just to be safe. It was a sharp officer that caught it on my registration. Now, I dont even worry about it. Lift laws are rarely enforced in my area, and its normally only 1 cop that messes w/ it occasionally. Everyone I know that has gotten busted for it was all by the same guy that got me.
