I was joking ya know- I am on the fence about inspections, even though we don't have them here. I asked a state trooper how high my front bumper could be. His response was " I don't even care if you have a front bumper" . We have no inspections at all. That could come back to bite a guy though, if he was to cross into a state where different limits are set, or, types of steering joints are precisely described. I could see where it could lead to an impounded truck if there is a safety violation. That could sure mess up a vacation. At least you know you can probably drive about anywhere with the setup you have.
