Great thread. In my experience, the actions you take when pulled over make more of a difference than any statutes that may apply. Roll front windows down half way, remove keys from ignition and place visibly on dash, empty hands on steering wheel, and dome light on. Make the officer feel as safe as possible when he or she approaches your truck and it will go a LONG way toward diffusing the situation.
As long as you are not being pulled for something really stupid, this is likely to result in a warning rather than a ticket. Most of the cops I know are regular dudes that like trucks, cars, bikes, etc., and will respond to your attitude more than the myriad laws in effect. Many of them run the same mods as the rest of us.
Act pissy though, and you might be surprised at how many regs they can pull out of their azz.
My wife, a cute blond nurse, can get away with murder though....
