Bo and Luke head to town to straighten things out for Daisy and end up messing up a police raid on the place. They hatch a scheme to catch the record pirates red-handed by having Daisy pretend to be a potential client to trick the music outfit's ringleader, Lester Starr into believing she can fake a number of real-life artists. Meanwhile, after being in the wrong place at the wrong time, Bo and Luke are targeted by the FBI and the local law. And Boss has his sights set on getting a tie-in with the syndicate, with a new singer that Starr has to audition for them and Boss, who just happens to be....Daisy Big mistake|
|While running from Enos in Cooter's car, Bo and Luke run into a couple of problems: 1) the car they're driving is loaded with moonshine that Cooter was to deliver for Boss, and therefore have to avoid getting caught with it, and 2) they pick up the very pregnant Mary Kaye Porter, who has with her over $100,000 meant for an Atlanta gangster named McQuade, who is hot on its trail, as well as hers. And shortly before McQuade and his accomplice Leo find her with the boys, Mary Kaye goes into labor, complicating things even more.|
|This car's a wreck, but the engine's a honey and Bo and Luke MUST have it. So they make a deal with used car dealer Ace Parker, who's more crooked as a switchback trail, who has a scheme that could land the boys behind bars.|

|A masked bandit with a score to settle with Boss Hogg robs him of his illegal liquor money and then jumps into General Lee with Luke driving, causing Boss to believe Bo robbed him and he has the boys arrested for the theft. Meanwhile, the bandit (now unmasked) ends up at the Duke farm after Daisy makes acquaintance with him at the Boar's Nest, causing further problems.
|When government agents park the vehicle in Hazzard in front of the Boar's Nest, Cooter hotwires the US President's limo and takes off for a joy ride. After hiding the limo from the local law, it is carjacked by some of Boss Hogg's chop shop thugs, meaning the Dukes and Cooter now have to try to retrieve it.|
|Bo and Luke are deputized and sent to Springville to retrieve a prisoner, not told he's the notorious Public Enemy #1, Rocky Marlowe, and have to dodge Marlowe's thugs, who are trying to break him free. Meanwhile, the
alleged lady deputy helping them escort Marlowe is actually a woman who has a score to settle with Marlowe for not helping her father in his time of need.
|Boss Hogg, not wanting to let go of $1,000,000 in old bills meant for destruction, hatches a scheme where he'll keep the old bills to himself and still get them replaced besides....but surprise, surprise, Bo and Luke get mixed up in it and are framed by Boss for allegedly hijacking the armored truck that had a mysterious "accident".
|Bo and Luke become drivers of an 18-wheeler, which they eventually discover is actually a casino on wheels.|
