    I would call the dealer where you bought the truck from. They should be able to get you an official GVWR label.

    I personally have never had a DOT officer look at my GVWR label. I think the only time they would check it is if the gross weight in your truck registration seems questionable for your type of truck. Most conventional semi trucks should be able to haul an 80,000 gross weight.

    Is this a regular 3 axle tractor or does it have a pusher axle? The only times I’ve heard of them looking for a sticker was to determine if auxiliary axles were factory or installed later.

    That’s weird. He was probably looking for an easy ticket to write would be my guess.
