PA Residents Running Long Arms

Anyone in PA running long arms on a TJ? I am wondering if you had any issues getting your rig to pass safety inspection.

I have long arms on a Cherokee and have no problems with inspection. I hold ask the inspection tech where in the inspection book he found that long arms wont pass, I know alot of pa inspection is up to mechanics discretion so it may be time to find a new inspection mechanic.

I don't see why long arms would cause an inspection problem,and doing things right is the safest way to do it.

I haven't wheeled up that way in a few years, the gates locked, but there's a pretty decent looking trail going around it, the main spots like pig pen and bog city aren't part of the land the ATV park owns.
