RevCo666 This is the Ontario mirror laws:

Other equipment

Windshield wiper, mirror

66. (1) Every motor vehicle other than a motorcycle shall be equipped with,

(a) a device for cleaning rain, snow and other moisture from the windshield so constructed as to be controlled or operated by the driver;

(b) a mirror or mirrors securely attached to the vehicle and placed in such a position as to afford the driver a clearly reflected view of the roadway in the rear, or of any vehicle approaching from the rear. R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 66 (1).

Not sure if that conflicts with federal law if there is a different version... Anyone?

Jared66 Has anyone ever been troubled in bc for not runnin doors? I ran for almost 2 months in van city with no doors n I ha no issues... Did I fluke out ? Lol

st1264 I see a lot of vehicles with illegal mods (such as you guys are describing) and it doesn't look like they get tickets... as they don't take the mods off. Any real crime (or good donut shops) in your area to occupy the police?

Guy down the street has a lift kit, huge wheels and tires that extrude beyond the fenders, aftermarket bumpers and he hasn't had a problem.

Winterwheeler In Alberta, your fenders must cover the tire, mudflaps to the axle midpoint, front bumper to midpoint of tires.

Goodie Be careful to check federal reg's as well as provincial. For example 2 mirrors is a federal rule and didn't show up when I searched NS laws.

I also saw found something stating the third tail light on the back, sideview mirrors, and doors are fine to remove, as well as windshield (however with the windshield youd need at least one rear facing mirror).

I didnt see anything regarding lift laws, bumper laws. That is Ontario only though..
Thanks the bc laws had me worried I haven't had doors on in months nd got rid of my tire carrier nd third brake light

U would pretty much be at the mercy of the cop that pulls u over. Just depends on ur risk tolerance of getting a ticket. It could b months or days. Who knows?

There were 12 or 13 jeeps this summer hen we did the whipsaw and all but 2 or 3 of us got a verbal warning. He liked the jeeps and was having a good day I think.

Raidue Pretty much. I think the RCMP have different items they look for specifically and I really think it has a lot to do with how well their day is going.

johnnykuta Hmm interesting, thanks! I guess you can see how far you can push it

BLZ in bc,most police and dot seem to be more concerned with bumper height over width.and raidue,i agree that they are pretty strict on tire coverage.bc law states 2 mirrors facing rearward.either two exterior mirrors or one exterior and your rear veiw.also any jeep built after 86(yj,tj,jk )must have doors on at all times.only cjs offered doors as an option so you dont legally need to run them.

Raidue I'm in BC and have never been talked to about my stubby front bumper. When I get stopped at road checks the only thing they mention is the tires sticking out heyond the wheel wells.

Main things I have learned from motor vehicle branch are:

1) u don't need the third brake light which I removed.

2) u Have to have side mirrors

3) u must have some kind of door if it was manufactured with a door.

johnnykuta Roger thanks!

Matcheen You can also try jeepkings.ca, it's a good site for info like that for us up here.

Bulldawgs I would check with the local police to see if they can point you in the right direction for what is allowed or not, seein they are the ones that will give you the ticket.

Canadian Mod Laws

i live in BC and it seems our laws here are way more restrictive for moding a vehicle.

I know wheels cannot extend past fenders
Front windows cannot be tinted

One question i had was about bumpers - do front bumpers need to be as wide as the wheels?

I was wondering if this bumper would be illegal -

Smittybilt 76805 - Smittybilt Front XRC Bumper in Textured Black for 07-11 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

i am also pretty sure you cant put on clear light covers like a lot of guys do on this forum.

anything else we should watch out for??
