    I do know that if you register a 33K truck for 25999 and you get pulled over , you will get a ticket for driving a 33K truck without a CDL ( if you dont have one ) . A guy I know did this , he got away with it for 3 years , then got pulled over and they gave him thousands in tickets and had to have the truck towed .

    You guys are arguing the same point. DOT is going to look at the door sticker.

    It is necessary to understand that the 50 states are different than California. things that happen in small states stay in small states. I do not intent to alter anything. It started by putting the right tires on trucks and make sure you load up your truck following guidelines. California is the 6th. largest economy in the world.The need here is different than Maryland. We manufacture truck bodies... We don criticize people that do not have the money to buy new trucks.

    Thanks for reading.


    Rick the tire guy.

    No one criticized people that can't afford new trucks. They criticized you for promoting illegal behavior.

    California is also on the verge of of going bankrupt , has the highest homeless population , higher than the other 49 states combined . And lucky for Maryland Nancy Delesandro , married a guy named Pelosi and she moved to California

    Not here to argue. Your first post talks about overloading a truck and ways to do it. Others chimed in and said sure it can be done, but you are now illegal if above the weight on your door sticker. Doesn’t matter what state you are in.
