Need to pass inspection?

What's up everyone! I just bought my first vehicle. A 2001 60th Anniversary Edition Wrangler. The Jeep came with a ton of mods and a lot of after market parts. It has a 4" skyjacker suspension lift and a 1 inch body lift. Sitting on 35's. I took it to the shop down the street from me last week to have it inspected and it failed. The guy came back and told me 1. The wheels are "too big" 2. It needs a tail pipe and 3. The day lighter fog lights were too high. I'm not really worried about the pipe or the lights because thoes are easy fixes. I did some research and couldn't find any maximum tire size limits in Maryland. I called the local Jeep specially shop and asked them about it. They told me the wheels are fine as long as they are covered by the fenders. Then the dude goes on to tell me that it can't have more then 1 lift kit on it to pass! I can't really find any info about it or any rules about having more than one lift. Someone help me out and point me in the right way to go to get this worked out so I can pass inspection. Give me some good shop recommendations around Baltimore Md area! I want to get this thing on the road!

Might want to try the MD local section of this forum, I'm sure someone can point you in the right direction of a Jeep friendly shop.

Sorry, but you picked the wrong state to live in if wanted to go around and do something crazy like buy a used car. Maryland has the toughest inspection laws.

What we have done in the past is just borrow some smaller wheels and tires off another truck to get passed that fender rule. My friends and I have put lifted rigs through inspection no problem. I think there is a max frame height, which the small tires will solve too.

You're telling me. MD is the worst when it comes to jeeps. I'm just going to throw new fenders on it. I'm more worried about having 2 lift kits and not passing because of that. Stupid laws!

Bout the only good part of MD inspection laws is that we only have to do it once. Then it's just emissions every two years. Basically don't have a CEL on and you're good there

When my Jeep stops making strange noises, I become concerned. That usually means I have to go back and find whatever fell off.

So a suspension lift and body lift are two lift kits? That sucks.
