After every effort to get this thing on the road in Georgia, just can't make it happen. Dirt Legal got me a tag and I got insured, but the first day on road I got pulled over and told to take it home or it would be impounded. Because my farm is 35 miles from where I live, just doesn't make sense to keep it. This was a dealer model with a lift, 35s, windshield. I added wipers, M8000 winch with synthetic rope, mirrors, tow hooks, hitch, lockers. Immaculate and never off road. I have 30k in it. Will sell for 25k.

On what basis could law enforcement threaten to impound a vehicle that was appropriately registered and insured?

Basically, said it wasn’t legal on road in GA. He was a local deputy. I called the sheriff, he said it would not be upheld in court but that particular deputy would continue to pull me over. So would be a huge hassle.

After your first court appearance fighting the ticket, can't the judge get you something in writing to prevent further hassle? I wouldn't cave to the police state if your rig is truly compliant. Sue the dept for harrassment.

I spoke to a sales guy at Statesboro Powersports a week or so ago - I believe he said they sold 2 or 3 that were street legal and on the road. I think he said one of them belonged to the dealership owner. Maybe they have not met your local deputy yet.

Seems like the deputy would have to give you specific reasons that it is not street legal.

Hope you keep fighting for it to be legal.
Good luck.

You can add heater and top. Has an aftermarket tune, will go 85+. Front locker. It’s awesome. Tried my best to get a tag for it in Ga, and could not. So I bought an FJ40. It’s bigger and rides better than the FJ. J

Impounding does sound extreme but, unlike South Dakota, It is definitely illegal in GA to drive a UTV on public roads.
