    All depends on what state your from. some cases you can title it over. In NY I would have to get it appraised first then re register it ,then pay sales tax on the value of it.

    Might be better to sell it to your business, have the business make payments.. Talk to your CPA they should be able to tell you what you can and can't do.

    keep in mind if it's in your business name and everything goes south or you get sued your truck can be taken from you, but not if it's in your personal name...

    would be nice to deduct payments/expenses from the business though...
