it doesnt matter if its loaded or empty once the sticker is above 10000 and you use it for compensation.

the truck is a cab & chassis so there might be a way to change gvwr so it matches to the vin.

I have the same problem, AL state car tag is good for 8,000# max and any other tag requires DOT numbers. I just swapped it from a farm to a regular tag and hope for the best. There seems to be no legal way to drive a -1 ton truck in my state. And I’m pretty sure your right, its what the truck is rated for not what it actually weighs at the time. Mine doesn’t have a door sticker, it had been repainted before I bought it. I have been pulled over twice by state troopers and warned about driving my truck with a farm tag on it.
