That is correct. You cannot be written a violation if your vehicle complies with the regulations set forth in the state in which it is registered. This apply's to things including, but not limited to; Tire size, total lift, head light retrofitting, offroad lighting, window tint and front license plates.As far as I know, as long as you comply with the laws in the state where the vehicle is registered, they can't ding you for it, but I could be wrong on that.
I've been living here for ~20 years without mud flaps.So justto be clear if I were to drive to a state like cali that requires mud flaps and decent fenders but Florida does requires I'll be good right?
see, that's what everyone is saying - its where your registered....so it seems to me the approach i would recommend for anyone traveling through a state where you could possibly be pulled over for "their" differences in lift laws is to discuss the facts with the officer....Federal Transportation Law requires that one state recognize other state laws. So all vehicles have to follow laws of the state it is registered in.
