    I received this email from ODOT the other day and thought I would share it with all the oregonians:

    Greetings,

    Thanks for your e-mail. No laws exist except for the height of lights
    (headlights or auxiliary lights no higher than 54 inches, ORS 811.515) and
    covering the full width of the tires with mud guards/fender flares on all
    four tires within 20 inches of the ground (ORS 815.180).
    Link to Oregon Revised Statutes where vehicle codes can be found between ORS
    801 and 835: http://www.leg.state.or.us/ors/orschs-13.html
    If vehicle gets too high, the vehicle could be deemed unsafe in the eyes of
    law enforcement.
    That is about it, except that the tires and wheels must meet DOT standards
    for street use. One cannot use non-DOT off-road tires, such as the monster
    trucks use.

    Hope that helps!

    Looks like you guys got it pretty good. We have pretty much the same thing here except they go on to say that the taillights can not be over 72"s.

    After reviewing the law it appaears that we are classified as Class III (under 8000 pounds) and that the mudflap requirements are actually 27" not 20". Can anyone confirm this?

    Also, along with the 54" requirements for lights, we can not be running more than 4 at a time on the road.
