Hows your gas mileage?
If its good chances are it will pass OK.
Never had one of my Bonnes fail emissions and they test every 2 years in CT.

So true my friend, so true. There are no limits on what you can drive here. As long as you have insurance and tags they don't care. Or if you don't get pulled over, then you are alright without those. I suppose.

Bad Cat is most likely not helping... And I'm thinking O2 as well...

Damn son, your jeep gets good fuel economy. Tara'* get about 12mpg, which is the 4L but a 96.

I too am thinking the cat and the O2 Sensor being your low fuel economy culprit. I'd start there. Also you sound like you have a heavy foot.. that could also be something too.
