iRESQu is right. My SRT-8 is registered in TX (as will my Ram as soon as I get a chance to get back there on leave) and everytime I get pulled over either for my tint being too dark or just on a checkpoint, I just show my driver's license, military ID, a copy of the TX state law stating that my expired license is still valid since I'm in the Army, my concealed handgun license (you have to in TX, but I've been finding out you don't have to show it when being pulled over in GA), and my insurance. 99.9% of the time the police officer just looks at all of that, asks me if I have my weapon (which I normally don't) and leaves me alone.

If you are in the military then the state that you are stationed at really can't do anything to you in terms of emissions or tint or anything like that if your vehicle is within compliance to your state's laws.
