Bumper Clearance Laws and RK 3.5" Lift

So in Minnesota the street legal requirement for a lifted vehicle seems to be restricted to 25" at the front bumper. My questions are:

How strict have you all noticed these types of laws? Or does it depend county by county?

I'm looking to get 35" MT/Rs with a RockKrawler 3.5" mid-arm Xfactor setup. Does anyone know what front bumper clearance that amounts to on an '07 JKU?

1) Take the diameter of your existing tire and subtract from 35.

2) divide the result by 2

3) add this number to the amount of your prospective lift.

4) measure the height of your existing bumper.

5) add this measurement to the result you obtained in step 3

6) compare the result you obtained in step 5 to the stated restrictions in your area

7) factor in your best guess as to how strict the law enforcement agencies are in your area.

8) adjust your estimate by a 10% margin of error

9) proceed with purchase
