    This one is a '67, our first one was a '68. I have a lot of work to do on the wiring, bushings, etc. but it runs well. My biggest problem is that Arizona requires emissions testing and this one never had any controls on it. Still working to get it passed and licensed.

    Removed the KC's and I'm about to remove the add on bumper for the tow bar and put one on the regular bumper because the tow bar drags on my truck bumper. I'm also installing a hitch on the truck to help with the problem. Not a lot of work going on with the heat here right now but I plug along for a half hour or so off and on during the day. I've spiffed it up with new turn signal lenses and that makes it look a lot better now.
    Wow! Insane emissions law. Any chance of registering it in a more lenient state?

    Beautiful Jeep.

    Thank you.

    I can't even register it in a different county which would work as Maricopa (Phoenix area) and Pima (Tucson area) counties are the only problem counties. If I had known I would not have bought it. I figured on having something to tinker with but this is turning into a problem. JEEP = Just Empty Every Pocket.

    Did '67 even have any smog equipment? I thought that didn't come in until the 70s.

    The only emissions equipment on my 59 Fairlane is an oil cap with holes drilled under the lip of it so the smoke has somewhere to go. 🤣

    Our '68 had smog equipment on it but you can tell this one didn't. No tubes running to the exhaust manifold and no evidence of any brackets for the pump. I may see if I can get ADOT to do something for me. At the local office they were unable to help except to advise I get classic are statis but that would limit mileage and that defeats the purpose of having the thing.

    Yeah, point being, if it didn't come with anything from the factory, they shouldn't be able to make you retrofit something in there. Something doesn't make sense. Even here in California they don't do that.

    I agree with you 100% but I guess later 1967 models came with smog equipment and I'm caught in the no mans land of registration. I was able to get the title in our names due to the fact that the Jeep failed the emissions test twice but I cannot register it or get plates for it. I have a few ideas of how to make it able to pass so I will continue to try. Once that works, if it does, I'll do the same every year. It failed 4 of the test types to start with and all that is left now is the CO test and it is right at the edge of the scale. If I lean out the jet any more it will probably push it out of one of the other tests. I'm hoping that if I can get more air into the cycle then the CO count will fall into the permissible range. I am also going to ask for a different kind of waiver than the state allows right now due to the fact that it never had emission equipment. The hard part will be gathering the information proving it didn't have the equipment. Maybe if I raise enough stink they may let me slip through the crack so to speak.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
