Where do you typically look up headlight laws?
The DMV handbook is generally the best idea IMO, as that's the actual law. The other various aggregate sites can work too, but you never know if they're up to date or accurate.
Here is the link
to the Colorado Revised Statutes with the official driving statutes... give it a second to load to the section.
There are a couple sections that relate, but:
42-4-216. Multiple-beam road lights
(1) Except as provided in this article, the head lamps or the auxiliary driving lamp or the auxiliary passing lamp or combination thereof on motor vehicles, other than motorcycles or low-power scooters, shall be so arranged that the driver may select at will between distributions of light projected to different elevations, and such lamps may, in addition, be so arranged that such selection can be made automatically, subject to the following limitations:
(a) There shall be an uppermost distribution of light or composite beam so aimed and of such intensity as to reveal persons and vehicles at a distance of at least three hundred fifty feet ahead for all conditions of loading.
(b) There shall be a lowermost distribution of light or composite beam so aimed and of sufficient intensity to reveal persons and vehicles at a distance of at least one hundred feet ahead; and on a straight level road under any condition of loading, none of the high-intensity portion of the beam shall be directed to strike the eyes of an approaching driver.
You're probably fine having it below the headlights. Only thing to consider is that when you lift the truck, you're changing the height of the beam too. Although I'd imagine that the lights come from the factory to meet the strictest of state laws, which CO doesn't seem to be.
Our laws are a lot more specific/strict in CA
