Moving to East Texas

So I have a job move coming and I will be moving to Lufkin Texas. Does Texas have vehicle inspections and emissions required to get plates? I am going to miss the rocks of Utah. Any info on the area would be great if anyone knows where it is at.

Texas has safety inspections, but Lufkin probably doesn't have emissions checks. I was living in Gun Barrel City, and they didn't have emissions there. Best place to get info about Lufkin would be the city website, and then the state website.

You'll be within a few places for off roading. Shiloh ridge, general Sams, and Barnwell mountain. Barnwell is awesome. General SAMs is a lot of mud and 4 wheelers, still fun. Haven't been to Shiloh.

If you want rocks, you'll have to head to the hill country, hidden falls in marble falls or katemcy rocks.

Lufkin doesn't have emission testing as part of the inspection.

You will enjoy Barnwell. You are moving at the right time as cooler weather is just around the corner. Welcome to Texas.

An early welcome to the area. I spend a lot of my free time in Lufkin. Like was said no emissions. As far as wheeling goes we go up to the SuperLift park in Hot Spring Arkansas since it is the same drive time as Hidden Falls and WAY better wheeling.

If you are into wheeling look me up and we will see what we can make happen.

I'm here to participate. I didnt come all this way just to watch.
