GreggFanis If you get pulled over it won't be for bumper's. speeding[haa] or driving like an ass hole get's you stopped! .PS. Be cool and every thing stay's cool. That has been my experience with IL.cop,s Hope this help's

CJ1048 Make sure you ask the officer to show you the law that is being broken...most times he can't. The laws written can be vague at best and don't forget Gross Vehicle Weight comes into play for lift laws.....If you do your research you can beat many tickets that normally go un-checked.
Question: If CanAm Spiders, T-bucket roadsters, older Volkswagen Bugs, etc don't have bumpers covering their tires, how can that be?

Redsand I've never been pulled over for having a stubby bumper, but I'm far away from the shat hole of Shitcago.

97flexy you need bumpers in IL just got a ticket for it. if you have truck plates you need splash guards too I think the bumper height for Pass. vehical plates it 28.5" or lower(don't hold me to it, its been awhile since I've gotting pulled over for that one).

travis29 Ahh dissing CHI. Im a native so it was my choice to stay. I doubt city cops care about a modded rig.

LilYeller Its really too bad Florida doesnt have more trails and stuff for 4x4's to do. We have almost no restrictions.

Best I could do for ya. Not sure how completely accurate this is but at least its something. Looks like you need to have a bumper and the only thing it says is that it has to be a specific height.

Edit: after reading that page, remind me not to move there lol.
X2. I moved away from Chicago to the PNW earlier this year and man am I glad I did. I couldn't wait to leave for like the last year or so I was there.

jkfossil84 Heres what Ive heard. Front bumper has to cover the wheels! so fulll width. I have stubby and no problems. It would have to be a hummer loving police officer to even bother with a ticket for that. It also can only go so high, forget the number at the moment. Also a third brake light is not required. In this state you only need one working brake light, at least thats what my jeep friend cop says

DFW6ER Not sure about Illinois, but a quick google check will bring you to the official website detailing all of the TX DPS rules for inspection/safety.

6InARowMakesItGo i dont even think you have to have a front bumper at all in illinois.

Illegal mods in chicago - front bumpers

I've tried searching for some answers by emailing DOT about after market bumpers. The guy told me he didnt know and he wasnt sure who did.. WTF!!!!!!

Anyway, does anyone know if Stubby bumpers are illegal?
