Help me beat lift laws.

Looking to run some 40's on my truck. Probably going to lift it another 4" on top of my 8" lift kit.

I was wondering if there are any bumpers that drop lower then the stock bumper. Trucks bumper is currently 29.5" from the lowest part to the ground.

On trucks the lowest part of the bumper
cannot be more than 750 millimeters
above the road surface.
Bumpers must have a vertical surface
of at least 100 millimeters
Refer to bumper height requirements
above, and lamp height requirements as
follows:
Headlamps must be between 535 and
1400millimeters from the road surface to
the centre of the lamp.
Brake, Signal and Tail lamps must be
between 350 and 2110 millimeters from
the road surface

Those are my provinces laws.

What province are you located in and where did you find the laws? I am in BC and have searched the internet for the MVA regarding height restrictions. All I can come up with is my bumper height has to be 29.5"

Cop told me "I think your truck is too tall" (but couldnt rattle out whats the legal limit)Now, I have to pass a vehicle inspection soon.

I found them on a local police website:

I'm thinking maybe a road armour bumper or something would help.

Found some information pertaining British Columbia and Canada
Check out page 16 or 17

If your worried about it, get a Kilderman lift. Then when the lights come on behind you, dump the air. Cop will walk away confused.

I know about those kits, really nice stuff. I'm not sure if I could incorporate that into my trucks current suspension components.

It's really pricy just to change my entire suspension system. I was thinking of getting a bumper that could grab me a few inches.

Can anyone confirm my question about bumpers?

Thank you. Looks like I have to do some measuring tomorrow to see if I am good to go height wise for my inspection with my 8" lift rolling on 33's

Drop it to 4.5" and get Bushwacker cut out flairs. That'll take 41's and still keep your bumpers and lights down.

If it helps, here is a Road Armor on a 2000 with a 05 grill.

Would be cool to run cutouts but I really dislike them. I almost bought them and I seen them on a truck and changed my mind.

I might just have to leave the suspension alone ha
