i dont know but it seems like with 9" and 38.5s you should have alot more height on me than just the 4" posted. 9" on the lift should give you 5" on me alone. plus 1" for the tires too. weird how it all works out huh?

:rebelflag shit i live in cali and i only have to worry about how high my fame is off the ground and the hights of my head lights. the headlights of the head lights cant be more than 52 inches measuring frome the middle of the light to the ground. and no more than 31 inches off the ground. i got a 1987 bronco with custom 10 inch lift with 3 inch body lift. and im running 44 inch swampers. i just got pulled over the other day. the cop tryed to get me for eveything he could but i only got a ticket for not having mud flaps. i passed on teh frame hight cause i welled a pice to the frame, mand i relocated teh lights lower so i was clear on that. tehn he tryed to get me on tires sticking out to far but i have finder flairs. the only thing i didnt have on at the time were my mud flaps so he gave me a fix it ticket. so i dono what stats have rules on bumper hights but i havet herd or had problems with cops in that area. dought u will. any one have any other imput. :usa
