Exclamation massachusetts lift law

they really need to change the lift law in this state. my buddy got pulled over by a state trooper the other night and got yeled at for altered vehicle height. he was only rolling on his 33"s can't wait for the trooper to see him now that he put his 36"s back on. the trooper also informed him that he is not allowed to have duel exhaust. he told him to get rid of the duel exhaust and lower his vehicle hieght to stock and put stock tires back on. with all the taxes we pay we should be allowed to drive the biggest trucks out of any state

same laws up here in vt. I guess the reason for the height laws is so you can't roll over a yugo and not stop. they want you to get hung up on it so you can't get away.
most of the time they don't bother you unless you draw attention to yourself. they seem to be busy enough on their own to be bothered for trivial citations. maybe his/her commander passed his bad day on to your buddy. next time tell him not to stop so we can all watch it on nightly news just kidding keep rolling and buckle up and do only 65 if there watching

Drive a lifted truck in Mass
Get stopped
Cop gives you trouble
gives you a ticket
you take it to court
you explain to the clerk magistrate
there are three lift laws in the state
inspection station measures the door
state cop goes by the "2 inch" deal
registry goes by the math formula
clerk magistrate gets confused
finds you not responsible
have a nice day
been thru it

I find it rediculous that there are some states with practically no lift law, and states with really tight lift laws.

To hell with that, being lifted is the only way to be
