    So I suppose it should read around RM4k or less on Sabah's RT sticker? Plus runner fee RM1.5k, total not more than RM6k, sweet.

    Very true, 1Malaysia. Where runners rule. Wonder if I could apply permit to become an official "runner". I'm sure can make more money than many other [legal] jobs.

    from what I understand bro, the roadtax for 4WD in Borneo is cheaper and it will be vice versa in peninsular. this because the road condition in Borneo and peninsular. the 4WD is more likely a daily usage car in borneo and whoever drive a 4WD in peninsular is more likely a rich fella because the road condition there didn't apply the usage of 4WD that much. this is what the salesman told me when we bought our 4WD.

    Not only 4WD, passenger cars too. For 11k road tax private car, if Borneo registered, you need to pay 4k or so only.

    Indeed. What I mean is, in Sabah, D-Max 3.0 that equipped with 4WD system the road tax is around RM300+, for the same model without 4WD, the road tax is RM1K++.. I think I need to recheck this with JPJ.
