About 2 years ago I had a cop pull me over (I WAS speeding) but instead of pulling behind me he pulled in front of me. I was harassed and drug out of my car forcefully and had some other issues with him. now he pulled in front because his dash cam could not see him doing what he was doing. He actually yelled and used some "racial" words towards me. Me being the hot head he was lucky I did not clean his clock. I was charged with resisting arrest ( he handcuffed me to give me a citation then let me go. I got about 2500.00 in total fines but when I went to court to fight it I ended up paying the speeding ticket and that was all and the Judge was very concerned as yo why he would pull infront of me. Out here in Seattle I have seen many less then fair cops especially on the Eastside in Bellevue and Kirkland.

ive had that happen to was doing 110 and the cop slid his car in front of me but he pulled out of a used car dealer in an unmarked car with no lights or sirens so i called him on it and he has to let me go from entrapment. but with this cop he said i was speeding well i happen to pull over in front of a 45mph sign and pointed it out to him he said i was going faster then that which i was only doing maybe 40 since he was riding my bumper hes a new young cop and thinks he is gonna change the world. otherwise it went to his head got a court date in a few weeks to take care of it.

So my girlfriends mom just came to pick us up to bring us out to dinner and see that Dick has another jeep pulled over, but this was just a stock xj. I have a zj with a 4" lift and 31/11.5 swampers.

I think he is just pissed he doesn't have a jeep.
Can your jeep pass inspection, is it legal? If so I'd keep driving around and get his badge number and report him for harassment. Ps I love California, I've seen some pretty messed up cars, jeeps, monster trucks driving around. And when I took my doors off I had no side mirrors. Never once got bothered.

We don't have any inspections in Indiana other than emissions in some counties. I'm in a county with emission testing, but technically, I could probably get away with a decent amount of "unsafe" modifications. Too bad I don't have the time/money to do more to the Jeep... Eventually maybe...

I was just looking at the lift laws in Maine and I don't need bumpers, and if I have an exhaust its fine. I'll be calling the state troopers tomorrow to confirm, and if its true ill put a print out of the lift laws and wait for that Dick *** to pull me over and give it to him. And if he tries to arrest me ill just make a quick call to the troopers

Its *******s like this (the cop, not 808defender) that give cops a bad name. I am a cop in the military and I can't stand the way civilain cops act. Cops should uphold the law and set the example. Im sorry that so many people have had so many bad run-ins with these idiots. If you can get their badge # and report that and get them off the street.

Getting a little heated in here guys, let's tone it down. This is a family friendly forum.

Let's not try to get around the filter either. Just type what you want. We're all intelligent adults here, and we can count asterisks.

Indeed I respect law enforcement and what they do but the job goes to there head and they think they can do whatever they want they misuse there power and shouldn't but there's not much that can be done for cops are always right around here so if its your word against a cops your going to lose and I really don't think that's right.

I bought another ZJ on wednesday. This one is black with grey interior. Doesn't have nearly the tires I have on my other ZJ (Cooper Discoverer STTs). When I got it the tires were shot, the bumper was cracked, the top to the center was missing, the sunglasses holder was missing, the stereo didn't work, the blinkers didn't work, there was a bad dent in the passenger side rear door. All of that is fixed now and lookin sharp! I painted the stock ZJ wheels black and that looks sweet! Now I can't decide if I want to keep it or sell it and make a hell of a profit... I like this ZJ, I just like my other one better lol.

Oh decisions decisions......
