Nebraska Lift Laws and Vehicle Equipment Laws


Nebraska's street legal laws are not as comprehensive as most states. There is no reference to any restrictions on suspension modifications, frame height, or bumper height. Nebraska doesn't even have headlight height laws. As such, it is probably safe for drivers to install suspension lift kits, aftermarket wheels and tires, performance shocks, aftermarket bumpers, and grille guards.
