Cool, another Yankee in the mix!!!
You'll love the fact that there really is no laws pertaining to lifted rigs here. The only issues arise when/if you want to start swapping motors. Mecklenburg County (where Charlotte is) is an emissions county, but being from MA, you shouldn't have a problem with that. I think tint is only like 10-15%, but I'm not exactly sure.
Lots of parking garages though, so watch where you drive! hehe!
Email me if you need more info on Charlotte. Just moved from there after being there for 10 years.
