Before I go ass deep in making my lift what are the laws here in MN. I know there is some but I don't know what it is. The only thing I'm concerned about it the bumper height. Anyone know?

I don't know if they are out there pulling people over and measuring bumper height but this is the law.

The maximum legal height for bumpers is 25 inches from the bottom of the bumper to the ground. If you attach something to the bumper to make it conform to the legal height, it must be just as strong as the factory bumper or meet SAE standards. Simply bolting on pieces of wood or metal isn't gonna cut it folks. If you slap on a lift kit, you might actually be required to register your truck as a "reconstructed" vehicle, and that would mean you'll have to pay additional road-use tax and need an inspection where a new VIN would be applied.

I don't think that they are pulling people over either because I see so many that are way over 25 inches. So, does anyone around here actually obey that law?

Not me and I'm not about to lower my truck ;D There's lots of trucks way over 25 inches.
You can get a fixit ticket though, I guess my buddy got one for his chevy 6" suspension+ 3" body with 38's and he moved the bumpers up 3" to match the body, but had to drop them back down. It still had to be over 25" though, 25" isn't very high.

No its not very high. Just stock as it is right now with 31's its over 25 inches! Now that I think of it, my dad's friends kid had to redo his bumper set up on his ford. But he's got 44 inch boggers on it so I can understand that ;D

call ur local license office and ask them where to get copy of motor vehicle laws, i believe it's the dept. of safty or public safty something like that, it's in st. paul.
there is alot of other infractions that a cop could get u for but they probably don't know exact laws themselves, although a highway patrol would. there are headlight height laws, and usually need a certain percentage of wheel covered with fenderflares/flaps and the like.
i don't know how they can enforce these laws when a brand new truck is illegal from the factory

I was just thinking that same thing. Like those new superduty's? Those bumpers are way higher than 25 inches.
