Slackercrust, unless you asre using your truck for commercial, why aren't you rgistered as noncommercial, then you don't have to worry about it. If you are commercial, all you have to do is go to your local deputy registrar and get a higher rated sticker. Just remember that if you are Commercial in Ohio and over 10,000#gvw, you need a pysical card, mounted fire extinguisher in the truck and a set of reflective triangles. Non commercial doesn't as of right now.

Do you big class A and C guys deal with weight issues like this?
Don't know about any hassle factors, but overweight will mean more tire stress (blowouts..), braking slower and instability especially in emergency procedures. It all depends on how lucky you feel.....

I don't have a license weight problem because the DW licensed our MH for 80000# this year, a slight oversight on her behalf. Oh well whats a couple bucks when you're having fun.
