I've had an old M101 Canadian military trailer for years, just fixed it up a month or so ago and took it to the MVD place in Surprise to register it. They saw the paperwork was in French, told me to go to 59th ave and Bell station for a Level 2 inspection. They told me there I have to go to some Federal Inspection station in Chandler. Told them it was just a little utility trailer that I once in awhile use for camping but according to them since it is a grey market trailer all they do at the 59 and Bell station is seize and destroy them. Thanked them and left.
I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!
Would be the same if say you bought a newer Defender90 and some how brought it here to the states. after 1990 i believe it is Land-rover said No to the Us government and would not turn the 90 into a tj with airbags and other standards that a real 4x4 should not have. People import them and try to register them as "old". When they get caught it is CRUSHED. They cost like 60k and do not have heated seats. But the they have 3 selected lockers.
I know I'm bringing up an old thread but I just wanted to say inspections in Arizona are no thing. I drive around in a muddy xj. I can't hardly see out my windows and nobody says a word. A few years back I had a bagged truck and I used to lay frame everywhere and would pass cops sometimes while laying frame. Not once did I get stopped
I am moving to AZ in the spring and I was wondering what the inspection laws are for things such a how far tires can stick out on the sides, are fender flares required? any other laws that I should be aware of?
Sorry if this was answered or not already (not readying everything) but here in Arizona you just need to pass emissions. When it comes to fender flares, fenders, and mud flaps on a jeep you can completely remove them. In the good ole law book our jeeps are considered an SUV and don't require anything of the such. Now trucks thats a different store.
