So.... last summer when pulling the Cigarette home, I got pulled over by the HiPo and he was nice, but told me I should have an 18K lb plate on my truck and not a 12. (Missouri) Adding up the weight of the truck and boat and trailer - ok, it makes sense; I am way over 12k on combined weight... Nevermind that this plate is only a 1 year plate and a higher cost to renew
So, I got a personalized 18K lb plate and just picked it up from my local license office. To my surprise, there is only 1 plate, so I have to wonder whether I should put it on the front or the back? The lady at the license office didnt know. I heard from a neighbor it should go on the front, but that seems like an open invitation to get pulled over when not towing the boat since a cop is usually behind you - in a position to view your plate and not in front of you....
Thoughts on this? Anyone else have an 18K plate? Was this really necesarry?
