I dont know how NJ law is but here in GA they aint gonna take time to mess with you unless you are running like 53" tires or something just crazy. I looked at GA law and from what I read it says altering suspension up or down more than 2" is illegal. I think you will be ok

i live in nj but am not sure of the laws in nj...(being a nazi state there are so many) but i bought a lifted psd over the summer and it passed state inspection. i have a 6" with 37's and it passed. in nj you have to go to a station that does a tilt test to see if the truck will tip over. they basically drive it over differnt grades to see if the truck is unstable. when they give you the tilt test sticker it is like a second inspection sticker that goes next to the standard inspection sticker, with a catch. they hand write the tire size and vehicle height of the front bumper on it so you cant just have it inspected with smaller tires and then swap them with bigger ones after the test. i've done searches on google with no real concrete answers as to actual dmv regulations. i've had the truck 6 mos. now and a cop never questioned me about it or even looked in my direction, actually a few at the local wawa told me how much they liked it. hope this helps. btw where at in nj? i.m in the south right outside philadelphia

I was reading some where that any thing more than 4" need to pass a special inspection in the state of NJ that was after I did the purchase of pro comp.
