From page 1 of this thread you started...

Or if Timmbuck's gas cap is newer than yours, borrow his!

but congrats on passing regardless..

Glad it worked out. I am making sure in 1 year and 6 months that I will drive by the rapid test several times each week so I dont have to go through this again. I didnt know that it cuts off two months before your plates are due and thats when I started driving by those places.

They sure do emissions with larger tires. You just have to find the right station

I had to take the motorhome. Talk about scary putting a 38ft motorhome with a Cat diesel engine on a dyno and then letting it run full throttle.

Want to swap back again?

The LX looks seriously wimpy now with the 285s on it again...Not as wimpy as your 80 with the 4" lift and the 285s looked though - Glad it all worked out

It's not 4WD though, is it? I think that's the real issue.

Yeah, but you got your cool Lexus wheels back -- that's gotta be worth something, right?

When I had my 60, I had to keep a pair of 33's in my garage just for emission testing. The first time they tried to test with the 35's, the truck drove right over the rollers on the dyno. It was hilarious, but having to swap out the rears every time testing came around wasn't very funny at all.
