I need information on lift kit law/s in NJ. From what I know/read NJ law states that any truck with above 4 inch of lift is classified as “high rise” and it has to undergo stability test at state facility. So does that mean I can put semi truck wheels on a ford F350 (with 12 inch lift) as long as it can pass the stability test? Has any body gone through the state inspection on lifted truck before?
Any suggestion on a good mechanic around Fords, NJ (to install lift kit and regular maintains etc...)?
I got some news on this one….It is 38 inch tire max, the tires should not pop out more than one inch as compared to factory defaults. As far as max lift height goes, I did not bother since you need 8 inch of lift to fit 38s any way. Any bigger lift than 8 inch will make the truck look disproportionate and worst yet “ugly” …
in MD it allows u 2 b exempt from all inspection laws, including ride height, tire size, etc, only thing is the law also states it cannot b a daily driver which mine is, but I have not been pulled over 4 that, and when i got pulled over 4 my exhuast bein 2 loud they never said anything then either
as to a good mechanic around Fords NJ how about Old Bridge is that too far i know an excellent mechanic there and i know hes into off roading if you want the name and location of his shop and even a phone number let me know
Vijay, did u check your local laws concerning those "street rod"/"custom" tags????? u should check into that b4 doin the werk, nothin like havin somethin good and gettin told either take it off the road of put it back 2 stock..............hope all werx out well man
There aren't street rod laws in NJ that I'm aware of.
We have commercial and consumer tags...
rebuilt/special/kit car tags
and of course, antique tags.
Passing the stability test isn't a big deal, I've done it in the past. The key is to add a little width to the tires as you go up, which makes sense because I can't think of a reason why someone would want to go up 4-6" and use 4" wide tread on their truck
Vijay - do you have tools? Installing a lift kit isn't too bad of a job if you have friends helping you. You'll find a lot of shops steer away from such work just because of fear of liability issues.
