    I just received an e-mail from Roxor that the Roxor is now available in California. I believe they were held up with C.A.R.B. (California Air Resources Board), the people that pushed through the environmentally friendly gas caps that spill gas when you use them. No word on the California price in the email.

    Depends on your state. Most of the time it has to come from a model year or newer vehicle of the same class - aka Light Truck. The Roxor is not a light truck, so ‘no’ in many states.

    I believe, in California, if the vehicle is old enough (1976 or older?) the engine can be whatever you want. I don’t think there would be any issues with swapping axles or other non-engine parts into newer rigs.

    Can anyone confirm whether the Roxor will be street legal in CA?

    i would say call the CA DMV. any street legal questions should be directed to those that can honestly answer your question, without making assumptions.

    IMHO there is no way it will be street legal in California. I understand Roxor had issues getting it through California Air Resorses Board for off road use.

    Most DMV’s are very unhelpful. They just want you to go away.

    It would have to pass CA emissions before it could be offered for sale, much like lawnmowers, chain saws, anything that the CARB gods decree, whether legal for off road only or not.

    Don't forget the safety and/or crash ratings . . .

    Unless CA has something specific, this isn’t relevant at the state level.

    It came in federally as a UTV. The ability to turn that into a road legal vehicle is bound entirely on each state’s legal options.
