Just got worst news

I just got the inspection report from the local Mr Tire state inspection in Mt Airy md and they picked the truck apart like they were trying to suck every dime out of me. Everything from a sticker on the windsheild, driver seat will not adjust (fits me fine), says that the tires are the incorrect range They are E range, no muffler( truck is quiet and has down pipe and ex brake), about 10 -0 15 other items. Worst is I have nice rims on truck with new Lt 305 70 R16 and they say that I need new rims and smaller tires that came on the truck to pass something like 225's what a bunch of BULL****! I sure wish i knew someone who could help me get my truck inspected, I use to have a friend who would inspect and have me fix safety items not a frickin sticker or seat adjustement, these guys here where I live are unbelievable, this stinks it took every penny i had to buy the old truck and tires and now this, unreal.I really do not want to wait till January when I can get historic tags but if I do that will be worse case scenario.

Maryland inspections really suck, unbelievable how they just want to suck every penny out of you for no reason!

You know, if you hadn't spent so much money on the truck, the state would be able to take more of your money to redistribute as they see fit instead of you wasting it on a truck...

*sigh*

You should be able to do a lot of the work needed yourself, though. The sticker on the windshield & seat adjustment should be pretty straight forward. Throwing a muffler looking bulge into the exhaust shouldn't be too hard either, depending on how it's set up. Should be quite cheap for a shop to weld you up some flanges and a test pipe you can swap out for a muffler when needed.

Also, having a thread title to the tune of "Maryland Inspection Woes" or such would help get local people to answer you more specifically. You could also check with people in a local group out there - I'm sure you're not the first person to get harassed by the Maryland Motor Mafia.

That's BS in my book

The Government loves too take, and give (too those who don't deserve it)

But you can't mod a truck in Maryland?? Thanks for the warning, I'm never moving there

Man that SUCKS. I would be in jail right now if that happened to me. So, props for staying cool. I thought my annual Colorado government screwing was bad. I have to have a dyno test here every year and a inspection for $50. Basically give us $50 and we look to make sure you have a cat and your smoke isn't too black.

I would move to a freer state. Lots of construction jobs here in Colorado. Your truck would pass inspection no problem out here.
