Inbound
 
Just wanted to stop in and say Hi. I'm moving to Cedar hills in a few weeks for work so I look forward to meeting some of ya. I'll be living with family while I try to find a more permanent place to live as I'll be working in south SLC. Trying to find some where cheap that wont mind the dog. I don't mind a 30+ minute commute since coming from the DC area SLC traffic pales in comparison. My wife is also looking for a job as a chemist if anyone knows of anything. :thumb:

Check out Sandy, West Jordan, South Jordan, Lehi, American Fork, Pleasant Grove, Bountiful, Murray. Just a few options - it depends on what county you want to live in. Also, what kind of experience does your wife have? you can Message me.

Do the county's make a big difference?
I'm not looking forward to trying to get our Jeeps past state inspection either. Seems UT state inspection is much stricter than PA. I expected that I'd need to put mud flaps and fender flares on it but it looks like I might need new front bumpers on both my LJ and JK, lame.

if the tires stick out farther than 2 inches on the side, then you will need Fender Flares, if it's just the lift / tire exposure you are worried about then yes, get mud flaps. they are pretty strict out here but I came from Cali, so I was kind of used to it. Good Luck!

P.S. There are more Mormons in Utah County - if that matters haha and Salt Lake is a little more liberal. Those are really the two major differences. living expenses tend to be a cheaper in UTah County.

I've been here a day and I've noticed that. Everyone has mud flaps or bushwhackers.

I've also noticed that the majority of Jeep people don't wave back... They just stare at me like I just raped their mother.

X2 I just moved out here too and almost no one waves

yeah I do not what it is about utah but no one waves, the flares and flaps are mandated by state inspections.

CHP harassed me a couple times about window tint but for the most part they seemed lax on vehicle mods. However, I get mean mugged often by police on my way to/from work on the 15. My Jeep is one giant fix it ticket by the way things are looking here.

I'm in south utah county the farther south you go the nicer the people I wave at everyone and they wave back cops have never mentioned my flares or no flaps I guess they just figure it's a jeep down here

I'm also heading to Utah as soon as I can get my house sold here in Florida.
I am so not looking foreward to dealing with Utah vehicle laws and inspections.
Here in Florida, it's no mufflers...no problem. No fenders, doors, mirrors, hoods...no problem, etc. We have no inspections, it's a wonderful thing.
I'll be living in Ogden for about a year while my wife and I start building over in Eden.
Short of the Mormon chuch controlling the liquor laws in Utah, every Mormon I've encountered in the last 6 years we've had our vacation home in Ogden have been good people.
I look foreward to getting out there soon and wheeling with some of you all.
