Nevada Lift Laws and Vehicle Equipment Laws

The state of Nevada does not have a suspension lift limit, frame height limit, or bumper height limit. Instead, Nevada laws limit the height of the vehicle's body. As long as body height stays within the legal limit, suspension lift kits, aftermarket wheels and tires, performance shocks, aftermarket bumpers, and grille guards are allowed.

Governing Laws


The Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) cover the street legal laws for the state.
