Yeah, our laws suck! I have always driven a lifted truck's, and I have no less than 6 equipment violations to my name!

My JK is farly mild, but im sure if an officer really wanted to, they could find a few reasons to write me a ticket.

Im going to try a stubby front bumper out, kind of wondering if that will snag me a ticket?

I hate to be the one to say go ahead and try it...but they only really require coverage above the tire itself, and it says a thing for bumper height, but no mention of a width...

JK Modifications Bismarck/Mandan Area

Looks like I'm starting to work on how many violations I may have. Tires: fenders must cover tire tread or the whole tire? I may have to add those damn flexi flares to keep cops at bay. Also, I don't understand what is meant by 15 degree front and 75 degree on rear. Can someone explain this more clearly? I think I understand but just want it clarified.

What has become of the stubby bumper question? I caught the dang plastic bumper and partially dented/collapsed one side. Was thinking of cutting it off and putting RC or VDP caps on it until I can afford something else. VDP look more factory. I did find some reference in the Century Code about width of the body. But will the cops say body of fenders? It's ND. Who knows. I'm in the Bismarck/Mandan area. Thanks!!!

I have been running a stubby bumper for about 8 months, plus trimmed fenders and no back bumper and have yet to catch any grief over it.

I ordered a schaffers offroad stubby about a month ago, but still have not received it

However, I think it will be ok. The law only states that you need a bumper, and a height of 27", it says nothing about width. Plus on a jeep, a stubby bumper really is the width of the body.

If you live near the oil fields, I think almost anything will fly anymore! Some of the lifted 3/4 and 1tons up there are HUGE! I really think the cops have their hands full of other, more pressing issues than vehicle mods anymore. Especially on a puny little jeep, haha.

I have a 2012 and had the Jeep dealer put in a 4 inch lift. The lift alone lifted the front of the Jeep 5 1/2 inches and 4 inches in the rear. I have a set of 35's on it and they stick out of the fenders about two maybe two and a half inches. I have a cop friend I asked if I will get tickets for it. I was told it just depends on the cop and also said "dont all Jeep tires stick out of the fenders"! That last comment may be what saves me I'm hoping!
