Re: O/T rant .. I HATE NC
As a former resident of that fine state (which I really do miss), here's my advice. Live outside of the major cities and get a local shop to do the inspection. My CJ didn't have any emission stuff on it and it still passed. The funniest was shen they opened the hood and found a V8. The young guys swore I had to have swapped it in as "no Jeeps came with V8!". Well an old guy in back agreed with me, so it passed.
Here in good ole Nashville, TN they sniff you tail pipe and check for a Cat. Other than that, they don't care. You could have NO brakes and they'd pass you as long as your engine smells good. On the flip side, you could have the safest Jeep in America and if the engine is out of spec, you're failed. I can't wait to be back in NC.
