ID, MT, UT, NV, AZ, NM, CO, WY, and KS over 55, some up to 85mph, is allowed when towing . Im shure there are others but I haven't been there, or don't recall.

Dreem Big Chisel Down To Reality
So I've considered making the vertical clear gap covers into sheet metal and moving the truck's rear license plate to the rear as well as adding in some rear back up lights to make the end of the rig completely legal as one vehicle. This would alleviate the need fer a trailer plate at the end of Dark Aero as I will have all the requirements fer the back end of the vehicle (rear license plate, bumper, turn signals, brake lights, back up lights, and marker lights). The towing axle and speed restrictions would be non-issues as the rig would be treated as one complete unit since they would not be able to see/inspect the attachment part of Dark Aero to the truck. Thus Dark Aero would be fully incorporated as an articulated boat tail into the truck.

I wonder if Texas would want the T-100 re-classified as a 5-wheeled vehicle?
If for any reason, you were pulled over,running your tag number through INTERPOL would show up as a pickup,and might open a challenging conversation on the side of the road.
