    That gives you a clue that the belligerent may be the manufacturers' association as has been suggested, because there are zero JLTVs in civilian ownership so zero opportunity problems. Who else would even have awareness of that platform enough to raise it as an issue? Then again maybe some politician just got a little google happy one night and can't tell one thing from another. But again I wonder why they would care on their own, the lawmakers.

    They don’t. And never will. Lawmakers only care about what people with money entice them to care about. They’ve never had an original thought in their tenure, and when I say “they” I mean all of them.

    I started in the snow removal for VDOT in 2015 built 3 923a2s and 1 1083. All in hopes of helping me when I retire from excavating someday. Hopefully this year I can start making a profit, and if I cant get inspected there goes my retirement. NEVER TRUST THE GOVERMENT.

    First it needs to snow . We have been short on that for 3 years. Would love a 2 or 3 footer so I can go play. Wonder if VDOT would even realize it was not tagged? I have seen a couple M931's running around loudon county plowing state roads.

    Trucks need to be tagged, insured, inspected by' state and again at VDOT yard . Not to mention a lot of BS in between. It was fun for about one year.

    @#$& woman is drunk and wiped out everything I typed. Going to use fewer words this time so I don't have to dig a hole if she does it again. BTW, read all 27 pages and saw the "word" on 26.

    Six months on inspections, three on tags. What are people experiencing? Is it bliss to be able to drive "off road only" on the road, or is it the doom and gloom of all MVs being circumcised? Anyone have 2019 experience with DMV or inspection in VA for the past three months.
