    My understanding is that any vehicle with air brakes (except RV's) require a CDL and certainly those over 26,001#'s do.

    Tuning in early for this one. Someone get the popcorn, Scotty will be here soon.

    Could be non CDL, if its registered and rated for 26k or less. Which would of course make it a Class 6 truck.

    I love this line.....

    "Solid daily driver perfect for the home owner, no CDL required"

    I know dozens of white collar marketing managers in Suburbia, America looking for a six wheel dump

    Air brakes NEVER dictate whether or not you need a CDL.

    Sorry I am late. Give me a heads up next time. :drinkup:

    Technically it doesn't matter what it is registered at. If the GVWR is over 26k it would need a CDL if used in commerce. A homeowner using it for their private road or a daily driver would not need a CDL.

    yes we did...this was more questioning some sort of recent revision/exemption to the 26,0000
    i thought what are the odds 4 trucks listed in less than a week all say no CDL

    You make that sound like it's a terrible thing......................



    And I'm not sure I've ever seen a 4900 that didn't require a CDL in commercial use.

    the only way to drive 26000+ without a CDL is if it has a farm plate! it is determined as mentioned by the plate on the door, by the way in ny they can call dmv withe the vin and check the oem rating
