    Does anyone on this site run any Ford F-550s? I have some questions about plates and taxes if so.

    I see that you are in Kentucky so maybe you won't be able to answer for Illinois. But what class of license plate do you have for your 550? In Illinois it requires an H plate.
    Do you pay per year or per quarter for the registration of the plate?
    How much is it to register the plate?

    Two of my local competitors have this size of truck, One is a F450 and the other is a f550 they both are running F plates I believe.

    Thanks Tim. If you get a chance to see the F550 again could you try to check which plate they are running.

    Every 550 I have seen has had f plates and the good ole inspection sticker.

    We have an f-800 with an H plate. Costs around 1k a year if I remember correctly. An f plate on a 550 should be sufficient.

    I think the sec of state website has a chart on it somewhere detailing plate weights and yearly fees.
