    Vermont is correct- at least accoring to officer law here locally!... however in Vermont, as long as you have a current inspection sticker- and your tires dont stick out too far, the cops wont pull you over, unless of course you are driving like an A** then they will- and the ticket is VERY big, and they impound your vehicle- then you have to have it towed to a facility to have them remove your lift components until you are below acceptable height....

    Get your calculator: The maximum allowable mechanical lift (as well as what's acceptable in terms of bigger rubber) can be determined by this formula:

    Maximum Lift = Wheelbase x Wheel Track divided by 2200

    For example, if you did the formula and came up with 2 inches, then a 2 inch lift and a 2 inch increase in tire size is allowable, equaling a total lift of 4 inches over stock. More info.

    From what this state the lift is actually only 3" unless you put on a tire that was 4" over stock (2" lift), or am I missing something.
