    I don't know if this is relevant, but I call the smog ref asking about engine swapping for a vehicle and was told it was legal and passable for IM as long as the entire drivetrain was designed to go together. For example, I have a 95 4runner with the 3.0l V6 and I wanted to swap to the newer 3.4l V6. I was told that since vehicles with the 3.4 had the same transmission and transfer case as the 3.0, the engine could be swapped and be perfectly legal according to registration and emissions. I don't know if that is more clear than unclear. I did however have a question as far as HID conversion kits in Alaska were concerned. From what I have read so far, it seems they may be illegal, but I couldn't find it specifically in any of the Alaska laws so far. I didn't know if the site knew for sure or not.
    Thanks for the input on engine swaps. As for lights, there is no reference to a power limit on lights in Alaska. In fact, the only time the word "candlepower" (the unit of measure for light intensity) is used in the code is in 13 AAC 04.145 where it list a limit of 4 lights over 300 candlepower on the front of any vehicle. Hope that helps.

      Great website! BUT... 13 AAC 04.005. - "Disconnection or alteration of equipment" clearly outlines Alaska's body lift limit ( 3" ) as well as the frame height limits which are based on the vehicle's GVWR. For example, my FJ40 has a GVWR of 4880lbs which means the lowest part of my frame half way between the front and rear tires can be no higher than 26 inches (mine measures 25 3/4 inches - legal!)
      That one is a real bummer. Thanks for the update, I've made the appropriate changes to the site.

        Fairbanks North Star Borough does not require emissions testing as of Jan.1, 2010.
        Thanks for the update, that has been verified and added.

          Windshields are required in Anchorage, at least. As are windshield wipers. Just got pulled over and suffered a barrage of tickets.
          Does anyone have a code reference for this law? I can't seem to find it and i can't update the site without verification.

            Windshield law here, http://www.legis.state.ak.us/basis/aac.asp#13.04.225 , although it looks like you already found the code #.

            FYI, the bumper law is 13AAC04.27, not 13AAC04.72! http://www.legis.state.ak.us/basis/aac.asp#13.04.272

            Thanks for a great site!
