I agree with KTM, as someone pointed out there's very little difference in a 3/4 and 1 ton on most points but the GVW is what will get you. I think all the new 1 tons are right at or over 10k which starts playing in DOT land. 3/4 tons are under 10k so you're pretty much free to do as you wish. Technically if you're using it for personal use the DOT laws don't apply to you but a stickered truck is a stickered truck and it may not be worth the headache. It will all come down to your business needs vs your personal needs and how often you use it for each purpose. The 1 ton does add options for future growth with the business but the 3/4 ton would make less headaches for personal use.
