    Well I was just wondering if a lot of CK5 memebers ahve their trucks registered for daily driving or if they are Offroad use only.
    The reason I was wondering this is because I might not want to put in the work and MONEY to get my truck registered for the street. I would rather just strip the doors and fenders and modify her for totall offroad use. I haven't done too much inquiring at the DMV about OFV registration yet.

    If you get a green sticker, you've got to have the tow rig to haul it around everywhere....................

    I was talking about this with some guys this weekend. Somebody mentioned that some parks only allow registered vehicles to prevent all out machines from being trailered in. Not sure the extent of the truth to this or if it would even affect you, but its something to consider.

    And what if the nonregistered rig is parked behind the DD in the driveway when you really want some ice cream? Then you gotta move it to get the DD out,PITA. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    In CA, a rig with a green sticker is allowed into state parks.

    There is no sense in building a full bodied rig unless it's going to be street legal. Build a buggy if you don't want to register it. Less weight, less breakage, less width, and more fun.

    RE" Wrath's post

    A modified quote -

    "God see's what you're doing every minute RJ, he know's your sinning!"

    "God watches me in the bathroom?"

    "Don't go judging god RJ"


    Oh, and putting "thread comment pictures" in thread is very lame. In my opinion. No offense. Sissy.

    Oh and to add to the topic, move.

    SD has no realy truck related laws, no tail lights over 6' is the only one I know of

    I imagine an off road only truck would be a pain in the ass to get anywhere, because if it touches street you're illegal, plus any off road rig is fun to drive on the street occasionally.

    Yeah, well, so is saying you be naked mon. I think it's funny. If you don't, go back to wanking it. No offense. Sissy.

    It's very easy to get even an open-wheeled vehicle registered and street legal in Michigan. IE: My Dad's sandrail is actually street legal and has passed inspection. It's surprisingly easy to throw a vehicle on a trailer even for short distances.

    For National Forests, a vehicle must be street legal and registered, at least fo use on logging roads. This actually means 4 wheelers are not allowed, nor are bikes that aren't street legal. (not that it doesn't happen all the time, just not legal)

    Once you are off any sort of "declared" road, I don't believe any of that applies.

    Around here, I've heard of some of the ORV areas now requiring rigs to be "street legal" (registration, tags, etc) which seems absolutely stupid, but then again, look what state I live in.

    There isn't much public land available for wheeling in this part of the country, but there are a lot of privately owned ORV parks. Most of those ORV parks require you to be tagged, registered and insured (or at least a portion of these) to gain access to their park. It's basically done to lower the property owner's liability. However, on the other side of that equation it doesn't take quite as much to get a vehicle registerd over here as it does in CA. Especially in AL, all that is required is a bill of sale. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    Anyways, can you still get auto insurance on a non-street legal vehicle (ie un-registered, un-tagged) and if so are the rates comparable to a street driven vehicle? I understand CA has some special provisions for ORV only vehicles to become (I guess) "registered", but humor me, we don't encounter anything like that around here. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
