thats not the problem , the problem is if the Scrambler is a PICKUP i mean, they are classified as a PICKUP or like a jeep , I`m from monterrey, mx, and i i want to buy one and take to mexico i need to be PICKUP hhehe just pick up no cars, so my question is if it is classified as PICKUP
I've had two Scramblers, listed on both their titles as "pick-ups" 're-titled' as "station wagons" (upon the installation of rear seats) to enable registration thereas (for purpose of lower registration/tag fees).
I bought my Scrambler new in California, it was licensed as a pickup with commerical plates, not as a passenger car. However, I have seen several Scramblers that have been resold with passenger car plates.
In Colorado, all jeeps are registered as passenger vehicles (as of 3 years ago, anyway). Main reason is that if you have acreage outside city limits and have a pickup, you can title as a "farm" vehicle, avoid emissions inspections, use tax-free "farm use" fuel and build your driveline to your hearts content. Not what the state wants to happen. And what with the inclination of Jeep owners to build up their vehicle, the state doesn't want them to be trucks. Simply put, the state can't rape you as bad, and it pi$$es them off when they can't (Control Freaks). When I was there, I found a clerk who was sympathetic and a friend who did VIN inspections. Between the two, I had both of my Scramblers and couple 5's retitled as trucks. Saved a ton of cash and had the immense pleasure of beating the state at their own game.
Note: Check out Jeep brochures, In at least one year Scramblers were referred to as a pickup. That's what I showed the clerk to get my 8's titled as a truck. Maybe the need will arise for one of you.
They also wanted us to have little roofs over our trash cans (like Kalifornia) 20 miles up in the mountains, but that's a whole separate story.
Now I'm in Dearborn Michigan and can't put 220 in my garage because I "might" start a business. Figgers! Wish I was still in Colorado!!!! Really!!
That'd be spelled "Republik" eh Carl? Sorry to hear that. Job take you out of Colorado? Virginia must be culture shock.
We were west of Fort Collins about 17 miles. I miss it a lot. We were just east, about 1 mile, of the western edge of the "B" emissions zone, so I had to get creative. with Colorado State being in FC. Larimer County was getting a little liberal with the roofs over the Trash cans and all. Becoming a Boulder wannabe.
