Maryland lift laws

Does anyone have any idea what the lift laws are in Maryland. I have a CJ-7 with a spring over that sits about 24" from the ground to the bottom of the frame rail and rides on 36" swampers. Tires are mostly covered by flares and I have mud flaps that can be attached for the street. I trailer it to anywhere of distance, but like to enjoy it on a nice summer day and need to keep it registered because I will be living in an apartmant and not have a garage to keep it in. Any advice would be a big help. I have lived there in the past, but was not into wheeling so it never affected me. Thanks

Re: Maryland lift laws

Try looking here: <font color=red>Lift Laws by State</font color=red>

"No trucks or multipurpose vehicles with a GVWR of 10,000 pounds or less can be taller than 28 inches. A truck beyond 10,000 pounds-but not more than 18,000 pounds-can go beyond 30 inches (you Excursion owners just made it into that first grouping under the wire). Lift more than those 30, and you'll be ticketed and/or given a Safety Equipment Repair Order (SERO) to fix the violation." From December 2000 Issue of Off-Road Magazine

Re: Maryland lift laws

so which one is applicable? I'm in NC. I'm only going 4 inches right now, so I'm within regulations. But let's say 2 or 3 years down the road, when I want to go a bit higher, and ride on top of everybody, with some trick suspension, and 60'' boggers? I don't plan on stopping at 4 inches. Thanks

Re: Maryland lift laws

Does anyone know if it is just bumper height, or if things like spring-overs and and altering the stock suspension is also illegal?

I appreciate what help you were able to give me.
