Smoging an AZ jeep in CA?

Are there any differences between CA jeeps and federal jeeps in terms of smog equipment? I have a jeep from AZ, and I need to get a smog check in CA. Are there any differences in smog equipment that would cause it to fail a visual?
Thanks

Shouldn't be a problem as long as it has the emissions that it came with intact and functioning.

So there arent any differences I should be worried about? Great. I just wanted to make sure. In my other car, CA models have an additional cat, that the federal cars do not have.

There are differences, but you just need to have the equipment that is was sold with working and pass smog for that. Nothing more. Its all posted on the CA DMV web site, even a Caveman could do it.

Like 4.0 said, it depends. However if you are brining a vehicle from another state to California they can't force you to have the same emissions equipment that was installed on vehicles that were bought new in CA. That would be assinine on their part. All you need to have is the emissions equipment that was factory on your vehicle for the year it was purchased.

What year model is the Jeep? Most newer vehicles come from the factory with 50 states emissions.
