And above 14,001-lbs to avoid annual smog checking, if registered to an address in Las Vegas valley or Reno metro areas. That is for standard passenger vehicle registration. Now that Deuces & 5-tons cannot be registered as Classics, registration fees are based on weight...several club members reported having to pay around $400 annually for each of these under standard registrations, so your $350 is a bit of a bargain.DMV said it was about 350.00 a year based on the weight. Their key index is 25,999 pounds before it is a CDL issue.
I'm currently in Ely, sorry can not make the event. I have a clean Illinois road title. I think it is my local DMV here that is causing the problem. I'm going to do the vin inspection and head up to Elko DMV. I see plenty of Duces and 5 tons around here in Nevada. I would rather stay here in NV, however might have to use the other option.And above 14,001-lbs to avoid annual smog checking, if registered to an address in Las Vegas valley or Reno metro areas.

Please report back if it ends up being something different.

Keep in mind that the DMV will only accept the SF-97 if it is in your name only...they do not accept any further re-assignments. If you are buying from a private party and all they have is the SF-97, you will have to have them accompany you to the DMV while it is initially titled in seller's name, then do title transfer to you while you are both sitting in front of same DMV clerk.
If you'd like to know more about Nevada DMV issues, feel free to attend the monthly meeting of the Southern Nevada Military Vehicle Association this Saturday, Sept 16th at 2pm, held at the Marine Corps League building (Spring Mtn/Arville, next to American Shooters building). One of our members tried for several years to title & register his M2 halftrack; he ended up suing the NV-DMV and winning, yet the state's Deputy AG refused to abide by the ruling....after being held in contempt of court and this member's friendship with an influential state senator, the DMV was forced to relent and issued a title & registration to the M2 halftrack. It drove in our parade procession this past July 4th. This member is sharing his experiences this Saturday with titling old vehicles that have never been titled before, and is spearheading an initiative to try to come up with a separate Historical Military Vehicle registration classification in Nevada. We'd love to have you come by!
Well that is bad info as OHV in Nevada is limited at 2k pounds or just under or less so no a OHV will be rejected. Like I'm going to title a 915 or 916 1083 as an OHV.From NV-DMV
I am being told that you can still go through OHV but that is for off road vehicles only. I am waiting to receive information from an administrator who is working on a new policy in regards to these type of vehicles. When I receive the information I will pass it on to you.
Just acquired 1 m1078 and 1 m1081 on a trade with a friend in Washington state.Wondering about registration problems.I live in fish springs.We picked up our M-1078 in Pennsylvania, and drove it home to Gardnerville. It had a PA title, and we had a trip permit issued by the AAA in PA. I then drove it up to Carson City ( in forest camo..) and had it inspected. The short vin# threw them, as it wouldn't work in their system. They just added zeros till the had 17 digits. I was asked what the MSRP was when new. I told her $104,000 in 1994.. This sent her for a supervisor. They came back and agreed to issue it at the lowest value they had which was under $10,000. I walked out with a title and plates.
Truth be told, I went in and grilled a supervisor before I purchased it and drove it home.
No troubles since.
