When I registered my truck here in SC, (resident of TX) they asked how much I was going to tow. I told them I had no idea. They said they needed to know because it would effect how much my license plate cost per year. On my registration they put 10,000lbs and that the truck weighs 6800 empty. Does that mean I can only tow 3200lbs? Or does that mean my truck and trailer together can only weigh 10k? I drove my truck on the scales with my open car hauler and a full tank of fuel and weighed 10k. So what can I pull legally?
