    When I put the collector plates on my Dodge truck, I signed a paper saying that I wouldn't drive it more than 4000 miles a year. The plates are 5 year renewable, but still fall under the emission testing every two years.

    ??? Really ??? That's my only interest in moving to collector plates - to not have to do the frequent emissions hassle. I was thinking that if a plate only needed to renew every 5 then emissions would be only every 5. If you don't do emissions on year 2, what do they do to make you get emissions?

    EDIT: Do you get a 5 year plate sticker or do they send stickers every year (thus not send the next sticker unless emissions is tended)?

    I may be wrong about the emission part of this, as I can't find anything in writing to support this, though I am sure it is what they told me in the office when I picked up the plates. They give you a 5 year sticker to put on the plates. Guess I will find out fairly soon if they send me something inquiring about a emission test as I am about two years into having collector plates on this truck.

    For my 1970 (which falls in the all inclusive 1975 or earlier vehicles), the plate comes with a sticker for 5 years, no emissions needed. When renewed after 5 years, its another 5 year sticker, no emission necessary. The 1958 that I did last year also was one time registration without emission for 5 years. I think it gets a bit more complicated when you get into some of the later 70 and early 80 vehicles that got registered with collector plates at some point before changes were made to the law....This is where the 'grandfathered' in type rules come into play as long as the vehicle stays with same owner, and/or emissions testing etc....

    The two years that I was referencing was under one of the potential "loopholes" that I was going to shoot for to get it registered. For the normal case it is 5 years between emissions.

    I had started talking with my manager (Kevin, he came along for Kelly Flats so some of you may know him) about the Honcho, and he told me his friend is great at making his own bumpers. I got to check out some of his friend Lee's work and I was really impressed. So given that I am not a fan of the snowplow "bumper," I decided to ask him to make me a custom one.

    He is also going to take the work I did with the rear bumper and finish it out correctly, by replace rusted out sections with new steel plate, and attempting to get the bend out of it. So I can keep that cool original looking rear bumper.

    Check out his work in these photos:

    I may want to talk to your guy about building a custom bumper for my Comanche. Something similar in the lines is what I'd like, along with a Warn 8274 winch mount, which is way different than standard winch mounts.

    Well his work is good and I think he likes doing it. I'll run it by him. Also on his JK he has some really cool rock sliders for his differentials. Has me thinking for my Wrangler
