Not a fan of government interference such as safety inspections, but this afternoon as I was sitting at the drive through there was a lifted (4"-5") Chevy in front of me, tiny, bald tires underneath it. He had to shut it down to place his order (loud diesel). When it idled you could taste the diesel in the air. When he got it going it pulled a black cloud behind it. It's guys like this that cause inspection laws.
Thanks Nimrods!

From what I've read, recon is really only enforced on Oahu. I could be wrong though.

Yeah Maui don't have recon but I'm sure we just a few years behind Oahu like others and I have said before there should be an "insured" sticker that the insurance company has to send to you with your proof and the state can charge them for the stickers not recon if anything they should sit down and really think of a good system that doesn't pin point the people who enjoy to drive what they worked hard for come on now a brand new hybrid could be an unsafe car just depends who's driving it

If I remember correctly, to sign up for this forum you must aggree to not be a jerkoff (obviously that's not verbatim). Most of us adhere to that policy and when we get off on the weeds we get called out for it. So this is me, calling you out. Knock it off, there is no need to act like that here.

Thanks

recon=reconstruction

Lift, front and rear all pro bumpers etc.

I don't think we do smog testing. I'm pretty sure that's what the annual safety check is for.

The only type of smog check that is performed in Hawaii is when the inspector checks your gauges and observes a check engine light or a warning light of some sort pertaining to it. Inspecting the exhaust for leaks or disconnected items is also part of the inspection too, but rarely done. The inspections itself is suppose to be more complex, and agreeing with one of the testifiers, it would take an hours worth of work to inspect the vehicle, which most shops charge $80+ an hour for shop time. Most safety inspections take 15 minutes at the minimum.

Im one of those guys who like the r/c truck look and have done it in the past. To me, function is over form. Id rather just get to where im going and doing it with the least breakage. Sure, one day ima be beach cruising with my 44s, but for my tacoma I really wanna keep it 35s/37s but keep a low center of gravity. If I ever straight fronted my taco I would never keep it 6 lug and it would be full width. At that point even then it would be hard to keep it low key. We live in a place where we shouldnt need to worry so much. Most people I know worry about the law, cause when that shit adds up it puts you into debt and you have little options that will make your mind go crazy and make you do things you normally wouldnt do.

A few years ago, we had a conversation about modified vehicles and if reconevery came to this island. If bumper height ever became a problem, we could overweigh the vehicle over the 10k gvw, pay a higher registration price, and not worry about safety checks. I think a special use permit could also be done if you just wanted to bring your truck out for parades, but im not sure.
I know this isnt gonna stop me from running what I want, its just gonna make me go broke!

Think you can get an overall measurement of the new sticker? I like make a plate for it and a recon sticker. Thanks!
