I've attempted to compile a list of all applicable State Laws governing our vehicles modifications (e.g. Lift height, fenders, mud flaps, headlamp height, etc and eventually links to the appropriate State Codes). I know that most of this information is available on several different websites, though I've tried to incorporate all the information into one area for our LOST members.

If you have any information to add or see something that has changed please PM me, or post here and I'll incorporate the new info into the thread.

4,500 lbs GVWR or less, the front bumper can be up to 24 inches and the rear 26 inches. For 4,501 to 7,500 lbs, it's 27 inches in front and 29 out back, and for 7,501 to 10,000 lbs, it's 28 and 30 inches. Interestingly enough, 4x4s and dual-wheel trucks with a 10,000 lbs or lighter GVWR can have 30inch-tall bumpers up front and 31 in back.
