    So I have what may be a dumb question. What are the inspection regulations for North Carolina? My wife and I will be moving there in the (hopefully) near future and I am uncertain if my current setups are "legal".

    My DD is a 2010 f350 with a full delete. Here in NJ there is no Diesel Inspection with a gvw over 9999. My other vehicle is a 1990 yj on tons with a sbc and 40's also any thing 95' and older gets no inspection.

    I know you can't give legal advice but I am just not sure of how things are outside of New Jersey and if I need to make some changes. Thanks for any help

    1995 and older will need a safety inspection, no emissions. At 35 years old, no inspection of any kind needed.

    But, on the YJ, you are supposed to have factory style emissions equipment installed. It all depends on the person inspecting and the county. Most will want to see a Cat on it. I have also heard of them not passing at all because of the wrong engine. That's few and far between though.

    The diesel is just a safety inspection. They do not plug it in, but depending on the inspector they might look to see if it is intact. If so find a different inspector.

    Talk to them beforehand. If they log it as a "fail" in the system no other inspection place will touch it.

    While we're roughly on topic, why is seemingly half the population of NY/NJ moving to the Carolinas?

    Cause it sucks here. The people are so rude, the taxes are insane, land is expensive, it's not 2a friendly , it's overcrowded. About the only thing here I like is that I am 3 minutes away from the Pine Barrens.

    So wishing I could join them...
    Apparently PA doesn't get on that train...Still stupidly high for me. Maybe I should look into that...

    EDIT: Never mind, I'm not 100% (nor would I wish to be) and they have a max income threshold...don't know if that's just for the veteran or household, but either way...

    Unfortunately, those rude people have now moved here to NC, and it's starting to become overcrowded.

    Many of those people like to complain about NC and tell everyone they meet how much more awesome NY is (it's kinda like crossfit people, but with annoying accents), which is both hilarious and ridiculously stupid, because it's the easiest setup for the "Well, go back there then" response.

    Meanwhile, all of the available forest and farmland is getting turned into high density tract home subdivisions, hundreds of acres per year. All of those people need somewhere to live, and now my young coworkers can't afford to buy a house within a reasonable distance from work.

    Humans are so dumb.

    They'll complain about an area being expensive, over crowded, and high taxes.....then move to an area and vote to make it the same way.

    Basically NC inspection is a lot like NJ, especially if you get out of the urban areas. But if you have a NJ accent they might be more critical of you because you ain't from round heer n u mite work 4 duh gubbermint.

    (Also, down here we are smart enough to pump our own gas)

    That's cool, I'm not painting you with the same brush. I'm just generalizing the mass exodus of people who are escaping the things you're talking about. There are plenty of perfectly nice NY/NJ people here, but there's so many of them that there are also plenty of complete shitheads that follow the NY stereotypes. My family is originally from Long Island (I'm not), and I would never want to live there, ever. They mostly migrated away in the '70s, and never looked back.

    No problem , most folks from outside of NJ think were all like the Jersey shore cast. That's just not the case. North of Trenton yes , but south of Trenton is very different.

    Not true at all. I grew up in northern NJ (up near high point). Very rural and no accents. There was no 'What exit do you live off of ' where I grew up.

    Tons of northerners here now in the Charlotte area.

    Cost of living.

    So they move here, and start voting for the same tax-and-spend idiots and now the cost of living is steadily going up here as well. In 30 more years, nobody will be able to afford it here and they'll start moving further South and ruining that area.
