Hi, I live in Mass and hear a lot about lift limits and people not passing inspection because they vehicle is lifted to high. I own a 2001 ram 1500 4WD and am looking in 31" tires but i trying to decide on a either a 3" and a 5" lift....would a 5" be to noticeable to police and or not pass inspection?
Thanks for any input.

I'm not so worried about clearance as more I am about being able to pass inspection or not be noticed by the police cause mass has done stupid lit law stuff... So I wanted more of the 5" but if I put 31" tires and a 5" lift would that be to much to pass inspection or would I be to noticeable by the police... Just wondering if other people had other problems with anything in mass before?
I know plenty of people with lifted trucks/jeeps. No one gets in trouble for lifted trucks. Had a friend with 3" lift and 35s that stick halfway out the fender on his ram....never pulled over and never failed inspection. Know another friend with 6-8" lift on a Chevy...no problems.
i know there are laws in some states and it has to do with how high the headlights are from the ground, cant be over a certain height. you would just have to check with ur state man. but doin either 3 or 5 " i can tell you aint even gonna come close to being to high.
as stated above, you will def.! be able to tell a huge gap with 31 on a 5" lift. i would either get 33s or go down to 3" lift with 31s.

This sir, 5inch lift on 33's with that hugh gap. Could you imagine if that was a 31 tire?
And for your orignal post question look here: http://www.liftlaws.com/massachusetts_lift_laws.htm
You would prob be able to go over the "height law" But there's always that chance you'll get a cop that is having a bad day and will decide to pull you over and whip out his tape measure.
