vehicle inspections

Going to be moving soon to Arizona from Maryland and was wondering what the inspection process was there. In Maryland it is one safety inspection when you first tag the vehicle and that is it except for emissions everyother year for non diesel vehicles. The rules are kinds tight.

I will be moving with 2 lifted jeeps, one on 37's with a detroit rear locker and a trutrac front, the lockers would not pass in Maryland but everything else probably would... Not too worried about my truck except to fix the exhaust which rusted apart mid-bed and just has not been fixed yet.

Anything I should know?

Thanks

Here there is no safety inspection. All they really check for is emissions.

However, I'm about to have my truck emissions tested for the first time after doing all of the deletes. So I'm a bit worried about the outcome. I don't know if they will just plug in the computer or if they will also do a visual inspection or run the exhaust analyzer.

Actually I think it is Maricopa County.

I've heard one way around emissions testing in Phoenix is to have a P.O. Box in Prescott and have that as your address for vehicle registration.

If moving from out of state, they used to do inspections when you first register in state, and get your license too. Emissions is the big deal here, it has to have everything OEM like to pass visual, and then pass the sniffer.

My Offroad jeep passed with out a problem, but my diesel needed a exhaust that sticks out for the "sniffer" Funny because my Jeep exhaust ends at the cat.

I did not like that the want you to redline it till they tell you to stop for the sniff test. I got into a little argument about that one.
