Still in the glove box... only person who ever questioned me was a city cop who came to my fire station to work out, and tried to tell me he didn't think I was allowed to own the truck, because it was government property...this from a guy who's also a Major in my Guard unit. I straightened him out.I registered the M1009 and got my plate, and as a social experiment I'm gonna keep it in the glovebox until PD asks about it. I'm the only one in the city driving an MV (except for my Guard unit), and I'm betting I can go quite a while on them just not knowing whether I should have a tag or not. I also work for the city fire department, so even if I do get stopped, I don't expect to be in much trouble. If I end up having to display it, I like the idea of a loop of 550 cord through the holes and looped over the top of the spare tire.
...5 years later, never been stopped or questioned. I did have one city officer, (who also happens to be a Guard LtCol) try to tell me he didn't think I was allowed to even OWN the truck, since it was Gov property.... After I asked if he was freaking kidding, he waffled back to "Well, I KNOW you're not allowed to still have the bumper numbers painted on it..." I pointed out that it's a POV, and I can spray paint anything I **** well please on it.One month down, so far so good! Plate is in the document bag hanging on the dash, just in case.
