You should have plenty of payload for what youíre doing. You think youíll miss the acceleration of the Cummins.
Small price to pay for having room to work.

I have a 2007 Dodge 3500 C&C with a 12' box. I've gone over the dump scales full of tools at 13,800. I checked once at a small weigh station and it said 13,700.

I dunno, here you would need a CVOR once you are over 10K.

You're fine.

You'd only need a Commercial License if your truck was over 26K, or trailer over 10K.

Don't even need DOT numbers if you have a pickup.

I got away with not having DOT numbers on my flatbed for 3 years. Just got popped the other day for blowing the scales.

Told me I need to stop at scales from now on, need to get a Federal DOT number, then a State DOT number. And an extra Federal endorsement, if I want to take my truck out of state.

Said it's my personal truck. I just happen to tool around in a friggin' flatbed with toolboxes and a water tank. Doesn't matter, have to get the interstate tags.

Oh well, gotta get 'em for my dump truck anyway. Roll it all into one.

Re: Vehicle Weight


I wasnít aware of the towing over 10k thing. Thought it was just under 26001 combined. They are really squeezing whatever they can out of us.

But Mike. I donít think you have anything to worry about. It seems you meet all the criteria to not be CDL or to need a DOT number.


CDL?

If the trailer is registered for over 10k (or 4545 kgs cause itís Canadian) then you need a different license.
