Forgive me for pointing out that you are asking, on a public forum, for people to list garages willing to illegally pass a non-inspectable vehicle--possibly opening them up to loss of license, fines and/or imprisonment. I am rather taken aback that you seem surprised that no one has taken this opportunity to divulge on their favorite "lenient" inspection station.

I went through this hassle just last month. I was unable to find a "friendly" guy because apparently the state tightened down on the real fake stickers (like the dudes who would just print out a sticker for you, that's gone now - the stickers have some kind of crap in the center that makes them impossible to forge), so the guys who produce the real stickers have to keep all kinds of records or actually do the tests.

I had one guy jerking me around asking me to leave it overnight and he would look at it for a $100 and when I was talking to him and mentioned for example that my tires stuck out past the flare and if that would be a problem wink wink he couldn't give me an answer and started heeing and hawing, so I was like you mf, I'm going to give you a $100 so I can come back the next day and have you tell me sorry? I could get a failed sticker for free, thanks.

So I did what anyone would do. I bought a bunch of stock, beat to crap parts off Craigslist, I borrowed 4 lousy street tires a buddy had in his garage, swapped out some other stuff in my spare time, and went and drove my now-ridiculous looking rig down to the DMV and got an official sticker for free. They could have still failed me for not having mud flaps on a vehicle where the body is higher than half the tire, but they didn't notice. Then I spent an afternoon getting all illegal again. I spent a little more than $100 but at least I'm good to go for two years until I have to go through this bs again. At least then I'll already have the "passing" parts.

BTW, having your off-road lights duct taped counts as having them "covered".

The top and doors on this vehicle are designed only for protection against the elements. Do not rely on the top and doors to contain occupants within the vehicle or to protect against injury during an accident. Wear seatbelts at all times.

As Black Bellamy said,
I also had to go through this nonsense with my old Jeep when I was living in Jersey. According to the DMV, you have to go to certain special garages that test lifted trucks.
For each weight class of truck, there are restrictions on the amount of lift. A Wrangler is in one of the lowest weight classes, so I think it was something like 6" higher than stock. They measured it by opening the door and measuring the height difference from road to bottom of the door.
I had to put my tires on the stock rims since they stuck out, and had to get mud flaps installed, which was a pain. But it passed.
I didn't have to swap my 4" lift out, or put smaller tires on (I had 31" BFG ATs on I believe).
If you call the DMV, or stop by your local office, they'll give you the number to the nearest garage that does inspections on lifted vehicles. You'll have to make an appointment, so that's a hassle.
But good luck man.

Hollis is correct, but thats not what this guys lookin for, I had to register my ranger I used to have in NY due to those crazy regulations, insurance damn near killed me back then too. Now I have my jeep reg here to NY, instead of my place in Jersey for the same reason, not worth the hassle, only difference is that being older and married, my insurance is reasonable.
