    Fender flares are required if tire exceeds width of manufactured fenders, no more than 3 inch suspension lift.
    Thank you, that information has been verified and I've made the addition.

      I was just told it was 4 inches of lift by the inspection station.
      I cannot find a code section that lists any specific suspension lift limit. I suspect that the inspection station uses 4 inches as a rule of thumb based off of the frame height limit, just like many police officers do.

        I was told it is illegal to use shackles on leaf springs other then shock can you verify this for me?
        That is most likely true if they are longer than the original shackles.

          I'm moving out to Maine and i have a 86 Chevy with 6 inch lift with 39.5 will that clear in Maine?
          Print the laws, find a tape measure and measure your frame, that's the easiest way to tell.

          Is there any sort of loophole or waiver for out of state residents who move to Maine? My Jeep was perfectly legal in the state I moved from and a lot of money was invested in getting this way. it's going to leave me walking in my boots to spend all the cash to transform it all back to meet these requirements.
          I don't believe any loopholes exist, but it doesn't hurt to contact the Maine state patrol and ask. Good luck. and let us know if you find anything.

            I had gotten a ticket for my lift last year I had a six inch lift in my F-150 and the statie said it was over 4 inches so not legal however when I went to court to contest it I had the statuet with me stateing the hight of my frame had to be 29" in the rear and 27 inches in the front and they tossed out the tickett, I also became aware that I could go 2 more inches lol. so of course i did and now I just wave down at the staties when I go by them lol

              This! This is exactly why we created LiftLaws.com - we get emails from people all across the country telling us that our information must be wrong because they got ticketed for something, however, we work hard to only post information that we've seen written in the laws so it's more often than not the police officer that got it wrong (they are human after all) and that is why you always argue your tickets! Thanks for sharing!

                  LiftLaws.com only covers the rules on the number of lights and their position. Sorry we can't be of more help.

                    I'm looking at putting a 4 inch suspension in my truck and a 2 inch body lift. Would this be legal in Maine as long as I meet the frame height restrictions?
