|xxximpact05||I don't think I tested a single jk that diddnt fail a gas cap and most tj's were bad too so good advice.|

I'd also recommend a new gas cap before the trip to the E-tester. It's ten bucks at Napa that is well spent. About half of the Jeeps I hear about fail because of gas caps.

|MRBILL4203||You can kinda see my wifes jeep in the back ground of the 3rd picture sitting on jack stands!!!|

Finally got it all taken care but wanted to share some pictures. I had to go to the damn place 4 times. 1st for the tires, 2nd they said they couldnt access my tail pipe with out damaging there equipment, 3rd time i made it all the way thru then failed on the stupid gas cap pressure. So finally went back for my 4th time and passed all the way thru!! What a pain in the butt all that was!! Now who wants to go wheeling/camping this weekend?

|ClayL||Ya if anyone needs tires for emissions come see us at High Country Performance 4x4. well set ya up and point ya to the nearest E-testing place.|

Wow!! I didnt know that getting your emissions done could be such a PITA for people. Thank You all for all off your advice...since i dont want to spend anymore money then i need to...i think i will go down to the garage and swap the wifes tires back to her stock ones so she can still get to work then put 2 of hers on the rear of the Wrangler.
That is cool of Discount and High Country to step up for us people with Bigger tires!!!

|Gellato||I had the same problem. I went to High Country Performance 4x4 and they let me borrow a set for the rear end. All they charged me for was the labor to swap the tires. There's an emissions place not far from their shop. It took longer to go through the emissions test than it did for them to swap the tire back and forth.|

|CoreyZ||Just another example of government sponsored private companies that create and enforce laws involving citizens. They can even go so far as to deny you a test simply because the tires/wheels are not OEM, which happened to a friend of mine and her old BMW. She had upgraded 18" wheels and some low profile tires (not super low profile) and they turned her down. Her tires/wheels were the exact same size as my EvoX and they had no problem with mine. Just stated that it wasnt equipped that way from the factory and they didnt have to test it.|

I dealt with this in January, when I moved from out-of-state. I'd heard rumors about the 35s so went to the emissions shop in Longmont to ask around. He told me the cut-off was 34". My 35" Cooper Discoverer STT measured at 34".
So I just made it. Although I had issues since I had no tailpipe and they wouldn't test me. So I had to have a $60 tailpipe made and then was OK. But the tires passed.
Personally, I think its bs. I'm in Weld County (Frederick) and 'parts' of Weld are exempt from emissions, but not my location. Further, I have a street legal vehicle, so its not my problem that they didn't build their machines to accommodate it. I think they should reimburse people who have to jump through extra hoops (i.e., renting tires) to get tested, due to their restrictive equipment.

|mwelch||The guys at discount tires found a set in the back. They tried to put them on and found they had a different bolt pattern. He insisted on unmounting my 35s on my wheels and remounting the smaller tires. After I passed the emissions I went back and he remounted my tires on my wheels. I couldn't believe he did all of this for me. Customer service was incredible. The jeep acted funny, driving to the emissions station, and would not accelerate past 25 mph and dash lights were flashing. It didn't like the big fronts and small backs. It was a big waste of an afternoon, but had to be done.|

|Colo-TJ||I think it's only a 10 day extension. But maybe thats just when you get one from private party and tag it yourself. Not sure|

|jasongind||If he is running on temp tags go to the DMV, and for $15-$45 you can get up to a 60 day extension.|

When do your registration expire? You should have time to do the drive by thing still. They are usually on the clover leaf style on ramps, just hit it twice back to.

|G-Rocc||I have a set of rears you can borrow. That is what I do for mine. They are TJ bolt pattern if that's what you are looking for.|

|Sunshine24||next time, when it gets close to the time for emissions..look up the areas where you can do the drive through testing...the little white vans parked on the side of the road...takes away much of the headache|

|Justin04Lj||I love not having emissions.|
|06-19-2013 05:20 PM|
|TheDesertOutlaw||This is why you see pre-owned Jeeps (at used car lots) with smaller tires - normally 31s when the Jeep is set up for 33s.|
|06-19-2013 05:11 PM|
|MRBILL4203||Thats crazy....I cant believe it....33's are not that big of a tire. But i guess they are just being safe so they dont have to buy people a bunch of tires if they damage it. And its not like they can go around and make ALL the machines capable of fitting a bigger tire.|
|06-19-2013 05:06 PM|
|chuckr||Some guys have been turned away with 33's even though the website says 34's.....I'd go with the smaller ones and be safe.|
