Move.









Some states base it all of what the truck is weighted to haul (GVWR), some off it's registered weight. You'd have to look, and then maybe change some paperwork.

Quick, trade it in for a new one and let the dealer worry about it....or like the others said, move!

If my plan works out the way I am hoping, I will smog mine one more time, and then hopefully I'll be seeing CA fading from sight in my rear view mirror.

I'd try to register it in another state if you can or possibly "gift" it to another family member in a different state. Just the word California makes my blood pressure go up.

Ummmmm. OK, I live in a state with 0 inspections and could care less about emissions. So..... educate me on what you mean by "smog".

Seriously? You do what we all do, put it back to stock and smog it then come home and put your mods back on. You really think you can fight having to smog your vehicles?
