lift laws in ma

Hey guys,

So my jk's stock height but has 32' nitto grapplers. Came that way when I bought it. I love the look but would live to lift it at least 2 inches, maybe put some 35's on as well. I've been searching around and came across some equation for max lift, wheelbase x track width/ 2200 or something like that. 2 door jk came to 2.6

Anyone have any other info/know for sure? Normally I'm not a stickler but I wish to get it past inspection when the time comes haha

Joe

I've been to several inspection stations isince I moved to MA and most of them won't even try to inspect my Jeep. However, there was one place that did measure the height of my rockers to the ground. This wonderful state has a book that specifies the maximum height from the rockers (at the door) to the ground for each vehicle model. Of course this doesn't mean every inspection station will measure.
My advice would be to keep your 32's and swap them on there each year for inspection. I think the 2" lift would be fine. Keep in mind that MA doesn't allow the tire past the fender at all, as well.
Sadly, since moving to this state, I think I've come to the realization that my jeep is going to be a trail rig only. I can't wait to move away someday.
