    Colorado smog laws. Wondering about cut off year and such. Or maybe easier if you can tell me if my 75' would be smog exempt. Just checking everything out before we move there.

    75 all you need is the tail pipe sniffer done every year. Or you can get collector plates good for 5 years at a time. And only have to get the 75 smoged once as long as the plates do not laps.

    hope this helps

    Is there a visual? Do I have to put all the original smog equipmant on? Maybe I will just keep it registered in Cali and keep my California license at my parent's house. All I have to do here is pay fo r reg each year.

    In Colorado, it depends on where you live. There are no smog checks where I live,up in the mountains.

    Yep. Even where I am in Co Springs there will be no more smog laws in 5 years. So it mainly depends on where you live.

    I live in a small town up north, and I don't have to do emissions either. So I don't know about the visual part. I do know there is a tailpipe sniffer type test in the places it is required.

    I keep hearing rumors the requirements will go away sometime in the future, state wide that is.

    A post office box number won't work. The state requires a street address. Though it's illegal I've know some individuals that used a friends address that was out side a testing area.

    Yeah and if you drive your truck to work in an area that requires testing, technically your employer is supposed to enforce the emissions testing on your vehicle. Even if you live in an area that doesn't require testing, you have to test the vehicle if it is driven to work in an area that does. :rolleyes:

    Just out of curiosity, where did year read this? One of the state emissions guys I knew from Denver had said that the local (Denver, C/S, etc) programs would be going away in favor of a state run program for ALL of Colorado. I just never actually read anything about it.
