Wow, I'm glad I don't have to worry about that. The jeep is mostly stock, but I've had cars & motorcycles in the past that wouldn't have a chance to pass.

Most states in the northeast are insane. New Jersey has special inspection for lifted vehicles too. I have escaped it with both of my TJs but my dad bought a YJ and it has a 2nd inspection sticker with heights recorded and if the any change it needs to be re-inspected at one of a few special inspection stations. I think that if I feel safe driving it then it isn't too high and they shouldn't care.

i have never seen anything about length in there.. and our inspection laws are so bad that there have been so many complaints that they are re evaluating them...

i believe one of the more absurd ones is that the rubber seals on your doors have to be in good condition as to not let "emissions" in

ours are nuts.. alot of them i really shouldnt pass just because i have a soft top and theres so many "holes" where the zippers meet.

Why don't you just run it through inspection. It's free right?

I'm not sure, I know emissions say you must pay either way pass/fail

You will get charged pass or fail but if you fail you will not have to pay for the $2 sticker. I am an official inspection station for motorcycles and soon to be cars and light trucks I hope. I am going through a few issues with penndot. OK here is the bumper rules--- a vehicle shall be equiped with bumpers of a type used as original equipment or a replacement which is equal to or greater in strength than that provided by the vehicle manufacturer, securly attached to the chassis or frame.
1 A bumper shall be of atleast equizalent strength and mounting as original equipment.
2 No portion of a bumper may be broken, torn or protruding to create a hazard.
3 A bumper may not extend beyond the body line or be longer than original equipment, which ever is greater.
4 A wood plank bumper is permitted on a road service truck or wrecker, if it is firmly attached to a regular bumper or equivelant steel backing.
5 Some part of the horizontal bumper bar on pass. vehicles shall fall within 16-20 inches from ground level.
Multipurpose pass vehicles and light trucks 16-30 inches above ground level.
The inspection garage will probably fail it. Call someone at pendot and ask them. On penndots website you can find your local quality assurance officers phone # call them and ask.

Thats what it says, there are a lot of grey areas in the inspection regulations. I would call the inspection station and ask them first if they would inspect it. i would inspect it for you but it will be about 1 or 2 months before I get everything set up to inspect autos.
