NH truck requirements/inspections

looking at moving back east next summer and looking through some of the requirements for vehicles and the inspections, i was wondering what people have seen as issues with inspections themselves?

there's lift laws, light height requirements, tint limits, etc out here but rarely are ever enforced.

do you see the same thing out there? laws in place but not enforced? we don't have inspections, only emission tests so most things aren't examined.

any issues with tire sizes?

mud flaps?

light heights?

not having off-road lights covered?

tint limits?

bumper heights?


thanks

Depending on where you go....I tried someone new b/c I received a coupon in the mail (never again).

The last inspection I had almost failed b/c of my bumper height. They used 3 different tools to independently measure it. Turns out it was <1in lower than the max height. One of my custom fog lights were out - they told me to replace or remove for the sticker.

I run duratracs (265R17) w/out any inspection issues.

You will get pulled over for violating tint laws.

I just recently took my front mud flaps off so we shall see. I also don't have off-road lights.

In summary - i think it depends on where you go...

yea the bumper height, tire size and tire width has me concerned..




and the lack of mud flaps, but i can put those on for inspection..

idk why they have to crack down on shit like that...you should see the vehicles that are legally able to drive the streets out here

like this guy for example that just passed emissions (the only thing they care about here really)



tires he used to be able to take the emissions test



they have a max of 34" tires to run the test...

i'm on 33s, tires barely stick outside the fender flares, on a 3" lift with front and rear bumpers that are higher than stock, off-road lights without covers and HID lights that were not factory...oh and a slight tint...27% or so IIRC

I have the same bumper with 3" lift but have smaller tires and just barely passed. You may have an issue. Your tires stick out the same as mine so that shouldn't be a problem.

Yearly on your birth month. Smaller tires should work but that would stink.

looking at the concord/manchester/nashua area..depends on where the jobs land us..

i really like the hooksett if we were to move to the manchester area..haven't looked much at the areas between nashua and manchester..we have buddies up in manchester so we'd like to stay close to someone we know...plus it puts me closer to the mountains

Hooksett is a nice area. I currently live in Litchfield and with the new bridge by the airport makes it very convenient for travel to Boston, the Mountains and the beach. Basically an hour away from each.
