View Full Version : Just got a box 3

Was a really nice cop and could have given me a box one if he spotted other things on my jeep.

He pulled me over for no doors but I educated him about the CJ's not needing doors because they were a factory option. I need to print that out again and leave it in my glove box.

He gave me a box 3 for having small led lights on the jeep and no mirrors.

I thought the lights had to be just covered but he said they can't even be on the truck. Does that sound right?

I also talked about the front window, driving with it down and he was not sure on that one. I told him all that the regulations say is that you need working wipers and no obstructions on the glass


Anyhow... it was a nice day for a jeep drive

I was told the lights just need to be covered. Got pulled over in a coworkers jeep a few months back, cop told me if the lights had their covers they'd be legal.

shitty, but he sounds right on most of it and was nice enough for box 3

I agree with the no doors being a cop magnet.... and the front window down I'm sure is much worse lol

City cops arnt even sure what they are looking at and have far more to do than figure out if my shits legal or not

so you have 30 days to go to the cop shop with doors and lights removed
I have heard they are checking vins and if it came with full doors and you have half doors it fails

Off-road lamps

4.25spud Despite section 4.04 (2) (c), a vehicle equipped with off-road lamps when on a highway must have the off-road lamps concealed with opaque covers

You can also have 2 fog, 2 spot, and 2 auxiliary lights that don't need to be covered. .......

As I get older, these things appear more bullshit than anything. If your vehicles not within the last few years, isn't stock, than your gonna have problems because you stand out. My truck is not a beater and is mechanically 100% sound as are most rigs that guys build to go "outdoors". We all tend to spend too much money and upgrade all the cheap O.E.M. parts because they're junk. If its not 100%, it will break and or fail and your gonna know about it. I deal with people all day who don't even change their oil, let alone you pull a wheel and there is not even a disc left because their breaks are that worn. Then they don't want anything fixed because they trade it in every 1-2 years and don't wanna spend any money. These are the people that should be having their vehicles inspected. The inspection is for SAFETY! Just because you have a couple of lights and an oversize tire, and oh shit your doors are off. You think my 1985 Toyota doors are going to save me from a ram 3500 coming through them? Oh right, doors are to restrain the occupants in the vehicle. So you take your lights off and pass your inspection just to put them back on. Pumping money back in the system and playing the game. I get tired of playing society's bullshit game some times. I could keep ranting. . . .good luck Kev. Last time I had my truck out of the garage I got a box 3 for mud flaps. I clearly have enormous mud flaps on all fours which I clearly pointed out. The officer said it is not his job to understand what is and isn't a mud flap, that's what the inspection is for. Then I asked if he doesn't know what a mud flap was, why is he questioning it? What are tires? is this a truck? I'm loosing my respect. . . .

I thought if the lights were below the headlights you didn't need covers. But pillar lights and roof lights had to be covered. Interesting
