    Welcome aboard. There are quite a few helpful people here. And, most are interested in what folks do with their trucks. So, hang around ask questions, and keep us updated as you do fun things.

    Beware that a 1995 truck is not 25 yrs old, so you won’t be able to tag it for road use.

    thanks! i dound this place thru internet searching & have been saving pages & screen shotting numbers.

    bobacuda: yeah im in ohio & we have a "new" mini truck law that went into affect 1-1-17...... you cant get them titled or licensed now when you buy them no matter how old they are here. so its gonna be farm use only for me.

    gonna go back & ad some more info about my mini into that first post.

    “Way to go Ohio...”

    Kei truck’s are exponentially safer than motorcycles (which I like) or bicycles on public roads. However, if people want to ride motorcycles or bicycles and risk becoming an organ donor, who am I to tell them they no? Kei’s, motorcycles and bicycles have their unique uses and places on the road.

    If I was unable to license a Kei, I would either not get one, or I would get the newest I could afford.

    Bobacuda (great name)

    yeah at first i was looking at only titled models & then when my DMV handed me the print out of the law on them.... it changed my game a little. just went for the nicer one instead... IF this turns out to be a good working toy? Then maybe i'll move to a dump model later.

    all im doing is farm use anyway. side x sides keep breaking & cost way too much compared to these.

    thanks to all for the warm welcome. gonna go start a thread on my first full garage evening with Mini.
