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!

That was the trouble it was French.

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.

After that, you really have to make someone angry to have them enforced against you. But, it CAN happen.

"Arizona Revised Statutes" is what we call the laws here.

Start at chapter 3, Article 16.

This is a good reference:
i just had emissions done and registered my jeep here in phoenix from out of state and i had NO inspection at all, the mvd never looked at it

I brought my Jeep here from CT and up in Page there was no inspection, emissions or anything. I was in and out in 10 min. When I registered it, it still had the body off of the frame!

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

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.
