You need more opinions, post a pic so the know-it-alls can chime in.
If you have a mild lift and good fender flares, you most likely will not be hassled.
NJ inspection is reduced to emissions only for MOST vehicles.
Vehicle safety (NJ interpretations) is up to the owner.
Meaning, you no longer need working headlights to pass inspection, but, if you go out at night with no headlights, you'll most likely get hassled and a ticket.
I have about 8" lift on my XJ and I get the second inspection. It is not really difficult to pass.
