TRCM will become famous soon enough

When I bought my 97 12v ECLB 5spd 3500 dually, I was told it HAD to have truck plates, even though it was for private use only, because its empty weight was more than is allowed for the generic VA plates that give you the tax break.

There is no way legally to put anything on it but truck plates.

Those you see with regular plates on them are not legal.

When I got mine, it had regular plates on it, but it was because the previous owner lied about the weight to get them. I took me a couple of visits to DMV and the weigh station to get it all straightened out and properly registered so I could drive it and tow my GN trailer.
