I see you are a new member - welcome to the site!
I live in CA also and I know a company that has a half ton ford pickup with a utility bed on it that got a ticket for not entering the scales. The road gestapo out here said since it had a utility bed it had to stop at the scales. Real POS laws we have out here.
My 93 D250 has a max combined weight rating of something like 12,500#. With my 7500# travel trailer I was grossing about 13,500 loaded for a trip but luckily I never had to pull into the scales. I'm guessing the 1 tons are in the 16-17000# range. Someone that has one will chime in here I'm sure.
