From the Florida DL handbook

Bumper Height Requirements

Owners of automobiles and pickup trucks are required to have both front and rear bumpers mounted within certain height levels. Height limitations are governed by the net shipping weight of the vehicle, not the modified or altered weight. The maximum allowable heights between the pavement and bottom of the front and rear bumper, provided by section 316.251, Florida Statutes, are:

* Cars with a net weight of less than 2,500 pounds - 22 inches front and rear.
* Cars 2,500 pounds or more but less than 3,500 pounds - 24 inches front and 26 inches rear.
* Cars 3,500 pounds or more - 27 inches front; 29 inches rear.
* Trucks under 2,000 pounds 24 inches front; 26 inches rear.
* Trucks 2,000 pounds or more but less than 3,000 pounds - 27 inches front, and 29 inches rear.
* Trucks 3,000 pounds or more but not more than 5,000 pounds - 28 inches front; 30 inches rear.

Aight i talked to a guy at the Florida dmv and he said as long as my truck is legal in my state i should be ok to. What you think? i live in GA and they are going by the headlight height now not the bumper height. (54 inchs to the center). I am at 52. So I am good in GA.

You should be ok. Just do not and I mean do not do anything to give the pd a reason to stop you(rollin smoke, people sitting on the sides of the bed, open adult beverages.) If you do get stopped just be polite, if not you will get nitpicked on everything.

i wouldnt worry about it man...... seriously ll the cops i've ran into really only care about ur home state laws. Tire size, width, bumper height, headlight height. . . and as long as u can show that u made it legal in GA, and the legal limits in GA, then the FL popo's shouldnt giveu a hard time.

as far as i knew, if you were legal in your state of registration and had a valid inspection in that state, there was nothing that there could be done and no reason for a violation

technically they can pull you over for your lift no matter what. Modified vehicle suspension. anything you modify from stock on your vehicle is illegal, so just dont piss them off and they wont bother you...
