Problems getting inspected in PA

my brother is in school at Gettysburg. He just drove his 84cj7 down and he went to get it inspected and registered. he has a chev350/brand new full exhaust w/ cats expelled out the back. He is running a 4" spring lift with a beefier shackle. he has 35x12.5 tires. The shop he brought it to told him it will fail because of the height and tire size.they also said the body rot will fail the truck as well. i covered up the major rust with aluminum and it now appears rust free.(until you look underneath...)everything else works on the truck.
I haven't been able to find info on the 4x4 regulations for PA. i tried their dmv sites and local shops and have not gotten anywhere. He he getting wind blown up his *ss??
where can he go to get his truck passed? from what i read and see there are tons of 4x4's in PA lifted with big tires..
thanks as always fellas
Matt

Re: Problems getting inspected in PA

Trust me when i say that i know just what your going through. I bought my 89 yj in florida and brought it back up herer to P.A. and now ive been trying for about 4 mounths just to try and get it legal. it needed a bunch of work and it is my first jeep but ive been working on other vehicles for a while. in pa your tires can't stick outside your fender flares at all. so you you have a couple options for tire size either buy bigger fender flares, smaller tires, or borrow someones tires for the inspection and just put yours on afterwards. but the bottom line is that pa has really harsh inspections laws i have done basically everything i need to on my jepp except put all new rear brakes on. but if you want my advise on the tires i would just borrow somones stock tires for the day. e-mail me if you have anyother questions on pa inspection laws because i have had to do alot of research on it for my jeep.

Re: Problems getting inspected in PA

He shouldn't have to sweat the height thing. I can't find it but there's a sight that lists lift restrictions by state. PA is rather liberal. Now the tires must be covered (they can't extend beyond the body).

Tell him to drive to York (just down the road) and ask Greg (3/4 ton YJ) where he gets his inspected.

But you may look here to see what this has to say

Re: Problems getting inspected in PA

Yep, I went through the same problem about 5 months ago. Here's the most helpful info I found- it's PA's inspection code. You should also ask around to see if there are any 'lenient' inspection shops around that may overlook some stuff for you.
