LT14x4chevy asked me about bumper height laws for visitors coming to Idaho. Anyone know what our laws say about visitors? Can they get a "permit"? Around 60 of his friends and himself are coming out to play with us this summer at Pleasant Valley Race track on the rocks (and maybe I can talk them into playing in the mud too :thumb: ).

Whatever state the rig is registered in is the laws they need to follow as far as I know.

State laws apply to any car entering the state. You don't get forgiveness because you come from out of state.

LT14x4chevy called the state and found out they can get permits for each rig at $40 each. I guess they are going for it. Cool.:thumb:

Maybe it's just for the military then? or someone just pulled it out of their ass and I believed them??

Though...

It doesn't make a whole lot of sense having to know every states lift laws if your travelling across the states IMO. I understand if I was driving something like Lehi's burb I'd be worried, but look at my truck.. leveling kit and 35s.

That's not legal in a few New England states, Maine for sure.

Some states don't allow uncovered off road lights, or lights mounted up on the roof.

Once again, No Kidding? WOW!

What date are we looking at? I'll make sure I'm there also. Sounds like it would make a great event writeup. :thumb:

I hope he doesn't mind me posting his PM to me, but this explains a few things:

"Yep I think we are comming that way at the end of July or first of Aug...We are going to make a week of it...We will be leaving here on a Thru.night and Driving straight through. And let me change that number from 50 to 60 Trucks and more are signing up to go....We are going to Invade ID with ILL Trucks & Jeeps :rotfl:
I dont know just how many there will be But I do know at the meeting today their was alot of people that wanted to come...And I know that a friend of mine is a member of FatBoyz club and he is getting a sign up sheet for them too...They are mainly a jeep club but they come with us alot ya dont mind do you??? Just cant wait to meet yall it going to be Fun.....:drive:"

He can tell you more about the permit thing since he is the one who checked on it. I guess they have done this before.

Great pictures! Nice rides too. There are a few folks here that are into the deep stuff who may have some good shots to share with you guys.

The mud drags at Pleasant Valley aren't "boggs". It's a "speed pit", which means it's 18 to 24" deep, 175 feet long, side-by-side drag race style racing. It is a timed event with timing lights. There has been talk of building a "bogg" at Pleasant Valley for those that like the deeper stuff, but no bogg yet.

Theres the annual Moyie mud bog in Moyie Springs, ID (way up north) every mothers day weekend in May. Its a weekend long event, $20 to get in and free camping, one huge mud pit for everybody to play in, two side by side pits to race, some small rock crawling courses, and plenty of hills to climp and trails to follow. The mud up there gets real deep, and its free to drive in. One hell of a weekend. They have a live band and huge bon fires at night. Last year we had just over 7000 people show up, and it should be bigger this year. I never miss it.

Im sure with that many trucks. We can get a bunch of locals to head out to blacks creek reservoir, local wheeling spot. Its less than 10 miles from the Pleasant valley race track. With as little rain and snow this winter, it should be low and have great gooey nasty stinky mud to play in. Deep mud, deep water.
