You should e able to get it to smog, tuned carb, retarded timing to factory specs (will run like crap - but meets smog numbers) and be sure your egr and air pump are there and working. You might find a shop that will charge you for an hour labor to get it to smog then take it through DEQ. They should know the numbers to shoot for. Mine smogged up there without much problem.

I have some family that lives in Newberg so I could do that if needed. I would like to exhaust all other options before I register it to one of their houses.

I'm ready to meet up. When and where

I don't know much about tuning a carb so I'm taking it to a shop tomorrow. I believe the paper said passing was no more than 300 hydrocarbons and mine had over 3000. Not really sure what that means.

I'm sure I can meet up on Sarurday, but I'm not sure about a snow run until I can get the bald tires replaced.

I forgot how much of a pain in the butt it is to remove the hardtop. I need to replace some seals and take the dash down for some electrical work. This is what we came up with.

Took the dash out for some wiring fun. I think now is a good time to clean up my dash.

Nice find and good luck with it! Gonna look good cut but I would have a hard time cutting that as well but to each his own. I was lucky, I found a diamond in the rough from AZ and it was already cut in back so that made trimming the excess alot easier!

Don't cut that beauty run some tall skinnys and look bad ass. Do a 3.5 SL 1" body and 33x10.5 toyo's. I regretted cutting one of my broncos, probably never again unless I build a straight up crawler.

I keep going back and forth with it. As of now I think I'm cutting. I like both looks, but cut fenders are the way to go with what I'm going to do with it.

Just keep the pieces you cut so that if you can weld them back in if you so choose.
