I got pulled over by the cops and got a VI because my tires stuck out too far. also i hadnt put a license plate on the front of my truck because i just insured it an hour before (needed bailing wire). SO i got it inspected hoping for the best, turns out im missing a couple bolts in one of my exhaust manifolds (exhaust leak), need upper ball joints, an inner and an outer tie rod end, rear axle seals, rear brake shoes, two u joints, and either an idler or a pitman arm then i should be good to roll!

fockers, why don't they go pull some truckers with turbans over instead of picking on us.

Ya we know it's a pain but look at it this way.... you found some stuff that was wrong and now you can fix it..........


OK maybe that sounded wrong..... um..... aw damn I'll shut up now:D

Poor or not, I'd rather have a safe truck rolling down the highway at me and my family! Yah, the inspections are a PITA, but they get a lot of junk off the road. Ever see a ball joint pop apart? Or a tie rod end? My buddies F250 did it on a back road at 30km/h, fortunately it wasn't on the highway at 100!

Larry

3 inches approximately but luckily i had some flares sitting around so they went on right away, and apparently my headlights are too high (only allowed 52 inches) so i let half the air out of my tires and my first inspection they passed so once i get the final inspection i should be ok to go

i break suspension parts almost everytime i wheel, and my truck only goes on the highway(Postil) once a month usually. i only drive the thing on weekends and its 90% of the time in the bush

You must have known the mechanic! Tire pressures are one thing you're supposed to check! You would be better off borrowing some small tires for the inspection. Get's the headlight/bumper height down.

no solid axle swap on this truck! its going up for sale as soon as it passes, i've invested just about $20000 into it already and im not even impressed with it anymore. im gonna build a new project after i sell this one and i wont even consider IFS again. ill never be able to recover the amount i have spent on this truck so im gonna start over at new

Im not really sure yet, i know im not gonna get the 20 that im into it for but i am willing to negotiate something, once i advertise it ill probably ask about 12500obo. I dont think im asking too much for it that way. I will be looking for another truck around the same time so partial trade could be included but i want to start with a pretty much stock solid axle truck
