So I am in the process of registering a new truck. The form says register trucks as a passenger vehicle if "the manufacturers rated capacity is 3/4 ton or less" So yea, because the F150 has a rated capacity of 1,840 lbs I can save a bunch of money and register it on gross weight. However, I call the registering office and they say if it is a F150 it is a "1/2 ton" and they will register it under passenger. What was the last year that an F150 had a rating of 1,000 lbs? 35-40 years ago? I feel no matter what they "say" I should go by; considering the actual text on the application form says "manufacturers rated capacity" legally I should be registering on weight. Thoughts?
