inspection, 52 inch head lights....

I just wondered what was up with this. I went to get inspected, and they say the headlights can't be more than 52 inches off the ground. I passed, cause mine are 51.5, but my truck really isn't that high off the ground. Keep in mind, this is in gainesville. They would pass an inspection on a waggon here.....

I had a 85 Ramcharger on 38.5"s that barely passed because the headlights were mounted so high in the grill. Just remember, the law doesn't say you can't relocate them.

I thought about mounting some headlights with a plug that can be removed and putting in a switch in that sends the power to either the real headlights or the "inspection lights".

I am still good until August though so knowing me, I won't do anything about till around July 31st.
