Local AZ question for you guys

Hoping to get a straight answer here.. I live in Tucson AZ, and have an Excursion with a 6 inch lift and 36's on it .. I was pulled over by a trooper for not having mud flaps on ??? Does anybody know if you have to have mud flaps on an SUV in AZ ?

Technically, it is a station wagon, which doesn't require mud flaps.

Mud Flaps

Used to live in AZ I was told it was the size of tires that dictated mud flaps, had the same issue once but never put them on

Thanks for the reply's fellas... I've asked a few cops now, and I'm getting mixed answers. Some are saying "yes" others are saying "no". I think if your ride is to aggressive looking then they will pull you over just to do it. Still searching for the by law answer... though I'm not sure I'll ever get it.

The technical law states that any vehicle with modified tires (ie ANY tire size not printed on the door frame of the vehicle). It states that the mud flaps must hang no higher than 6" from the ground. As far as the SUV being exempt, I have heard both sides. Personally, I would have them simply because it could be a reason for them to pull you over.

The Law that I printed off, and carry in the glovebox of my Ex, states a pickup, bus, or trailer that has an altered center of gravity.. Also if you have a 1 ton or larger it has to have mudflaps if it is lifted or not. I live on base and they used to give me trouble about not running mudflaps. After showing the printout to, eventually, all of the gate guards they don't bother me anymore.

28-958.01. Rear fender splash guards

A. A person shall not operate a truck, trailer, semitrailer or bus on a highway unless the vehicle is equipped with rear fender splash guards that comply with the specifications provided in this section.

B. The splash guards:

1. Shall be attached in a manner that prevents the splashing of mud or water on the windshield of other motor vehicles.

2. Shall extend to a length of not more than eight inches from the ground.

3. Shall be wide enough to cover the full tread or treads of the tires being protected.

4. Shall be installed close enough to the tread surface of the tire or wheel to control the side throw of the bulk of the thrown road surface material.

5. May be constructed of a flexible rubberized material.

6. Shall be attached in a manner that, regardless of movement either in the splash guards or the vehicle, the splash guards retain their general parallel relationship to the tread surface of the tire or wheel under all ordinary operating conditions.

C. This section does not apply to:

1. A vehicle commonly known as a pickup truck with a manufacturer's gross vehicle weight rating of ten thousand pounds or less, except that this section applies if the pickup truck has been modified from the original bumper height design to raise the center of gravity of the pickup truck.

2. A truck tractor or converter dolly when used in combination with another vehicle.

3. A single, tandem or triple axle trailer with fenders that are wide enough to cover the full tread or treads of the tires being protected and that extend to a length of not more than fourteen inches from the ground.

Truth! I have a Suburban lifted 6'' with 37's and get pulled over once every 3 years or so. I tell them this and they let me go.
