Off-Road Lights on the Highways in New Hampshire?

I guess it is not a law that is enforced often.
I'm in NH almost every day with my jeep and so are many others with uncovered lights up at the wind shield area and higher.

MA also has lift laws that says not over 2" from factory height (or some formula I'm not looking up) it just doesn't seem to get enforced. Same thing here with the lights. Suppose to be covered.

I drive around with the stone guards on the wind shield lights,I never put on the covers.
Sometimes I use them on back roads when nobody is around, great for spotting deer and moose.

(wheelbase x wheeltrack) / 2200 = allowable lift

Also represents the allowable difference in tire height (not lift from taller tires)

As my name suggests, I'm from the desert. Its crazy dark here at night. I'm not used to it after 5 months.

I've got more lumens than the sun bolted to the front of my TJ... and I don't hesitate to use them on the road, even locally. Never had a problem, as long as you respect oncoming traffic.
