I wouldn't think so

Well, you could give it a try as you have it now before you make any changes and see if it goes. If not, you've got 30 days to change it and get re-inspected. I'd try a smaller shop setup (like Simpson's in Huntersville).
If it doesn't look like you've altered it (remove all 3rd brake light hardware), they may not notice it - I mean come on, lots of vehicles don't have a 3rd brake light and Jeeps are kinda expected to be modded out.
Just my 2 cents here.

Nissantech Oh yeah welcome to NC and yeah inspectors are picky. A smaller shop will not look at as much stuff cause their not out to gut your wallet when I worked at the dealer they would ding people for everything!

Scott-CJ8 Only reason I mentioned it is because I had a camper shell on my PU truck, which had a brake light above the back window on the shell ... it didn't work, I didn't pass ...
Original equipment - they're kinda picky about it at times. (Can you reinstall the brake light just for the inspection?)

4DoorCrush I don't even have a 3rd brake light

Nissantech I'm passed inspection school in N.C. If I remember correctly 3rd brake lights were optional and the fact u have delta lug lights is great I would think you'll be alright
08-26-2013 09:30 AM
Scott-CJ8 Yeah, the 3rd brake light might. Be sure you don't have any engine codes being thrown. Usually headers or oversized exhaust can mess 'em up. Lift and tires usually aren't an issue.
I moved here from Indiana, we didn't have any inspections at the time. Found out all the necessary stuff had been removed from my Suzuki. Bummer!
If you fail any area, you have 30 days to get it fixed and bring it back to the same inspection station and get re-inspected (you only pay for it once tho).

New to NC; What are some mods that are't inspection friendly?

I just moved to Charlotte at the end of June. Pretty soon I'll have to do my first state of NC inspection so I can get my NC plates. In Ohio we didn't have inspections like this, so can you guys give me some examples of what mods would get rejected when doing the NC inspection?

Right now the only one I have that I'm slightly concerned about is I cut off the 3rd brake light and replaced it with the Delta lug nut lights. Do you think that'll get dinged? What are some other potential ones?
