LMAO, well this ends the debate in my opinion. I just called WISDOT about vanity plates.

LOIS from Wis. Dot said "If its a pickup truck, it has to have truck plates."

so I says, "Oh, so even if its a midsize truck, it needs truck plates".

So she says, "In Wisconsin if it has a box, its a truck!"

Is the JT an automobile or a truck for license plate purposes?

I found this on the Wisconsin DOT site, so it makes me think truck, but not sure.

  • ruck
    • 4,500, 6,000 or 8,000 pounds gross weight including dual purpose farm and dual purpose motor home
    • 12,000 pounds gross weight farm truck

@pilotpat, do you know?
It is a truck. You can get away with the 4500lb plate.

LMAO. Guess my wife is a truck!
LOIS didn't specify, but i think she meant a metallic box on the back of a vehicle with 4 wheels and a gas pedal.

Well you need lots of trucks to haul all that cheese, so anything with a box is a truck...... Do Wisconsin cows fart?

I grew up in Louisiana, and any Jeep vehicle was classified as a car. We had car tags on my J-10 and 3/4 ton ‘68 Gladiator. My full frame Wagoneer had a car tag. The crazy one was my Dad’s ‘69 E300 1 ton Econoline van. Since it had rear seats and windows it was classified as a station wagon and had car tags. To the other extreme, my ranchero had to have truck tags.
