Do you mean states to not buy from? Or states that are hard to title in?

Your question is a little vague.

Generally if the truck is somewhere where it snows a lot, or would get a lot of salty sea air, then rust is a major concern.

As far as titling once you have bought, I would consider California the hardest due to smog and import laws. Other states are close if they follow the same rules (like Mass).

If the vehicle is a NAS or legally imported, then the state should not matter.

Ohhhhh no. Search for my California Registration saga thread.

Just because the EPA and DOT think it's legal doesn't mean a state does, such as Kalifornistan. Some states set their own emissions requirements that go above and beyond federal. That's what kills you.

DOT and EPA papers will be a good start

Alabama, Oregon, NH and Maine are the ones I would be concerned about because they will title anything.

If it's a 93, 94, 95, or 97, it was a North American Spec brought in by Land Rover. This can be confirmed by looking in the driver's footwell for the large label that has the VIN and the statement "Meets all applicable Federal Motor Safety Standards" or something to that effect.

Otherwise it needs to be 25 years old and imported by a private party. They should have the Customs declaration and EPA waiver paperwork.

yes. The title is usually from where the owner is a resident. Unless they are military then it could be from anywhere. I liked Alaska because 2 year registration was 88 bucks and no taxes....
