Being a new resident, got a question with the whole weight class sticker.
When I got the tag for the truck, it weighed in just shy of 5000 lbs, slapping that Tier 2 sticker on the window and jacking up the cost of the plate. I weighed in with the cap and almost two full tanks of gas...
I'll be pulling the cap off at some time...once I do (and run the tanks down) can I go get reweighed and dropped to a lighter truck class?

They tried to slap a class 2 sticker on my pickup going by the title's GVWR rating. I peeled it back off lol. I think that's what they go by for determining class of truck - the title.
Welcome to PA, by the way.

I find most places once they see the 3/4 ton or higher want to throw you into class 2. They even tried it when I had my f150 cause they determined if I hauled anything in the bed it would put me over the 5000 mark.
Yep Jordan, you're right. I got a call the other day from the messenger service the other day asking me about my weight class sticker. I told them I would stop in one of these days and pick it up. It still wont see my windshield...
