The Sheriff or State Patrol don't have anything to do with motorcarrier enforcement. They aren't going to know or have the ability to find out if you're over weight. They won't look to see if you have the prescribed safety equipment. If they stop you it's going to be because you're speeding, lights not working, simple traffic violations. The DOT is who will weigh you, check your brakes, suspension, etc. Your best advice would be call or stop by the DOT's main office in Ankeny and give them specifics of what you plan to do. Before you call or stop, weigh your truck so you know for sure how much weight you're dealing with. Otherwise, Jim posted very good advice.
