lift law for florida??

every website i look at says 28/30" bumper height for vehicles up to 5k lbs in FLORIDA..so why isnt there anything for our trucks being closer to 8-9k lbs..

also if its measured by bumper height..i can just fab up some sort of lower bumper deal..maybe i should just go to the local police station and ask them???

i thought i read before that it was 54" to the headlights..im not finding anything now though

thanks

Thats the only info I find on all the legal websites I frequent as well. I would contact the DMV about it. Never trust a cops word when it comes to the law. Half the time most cops don't know half the laws they are supposed to enforce. Unless you have a vehicle code specialist on the police department. They may give you false information.

I know this is a very old thread but I just happened to come across it while looking for Florida lift laws. Here is what I found:
