I know i should have put this in a different section of the forums but i knew it would be seen faster here. I am in the process of buying a new truck and am looking at a 2006 Siverado 1500 4WD EXT cab. It says it has a heavy duty suspention and front end. How much more heavy duty is it compared to a reg 1500?

They are alittle beefier, the suspension will be alittle stiffer, probably have a towing package, and a heavtduty Transmision. It's still not gonna be what you would get with a 2500HD.

Honestly my 2500HD I believe is capable of carrying just as much or more than yesterdays 1ton.

Is that considered a "heavy half"? Didn't know they still made them today.

most of the time its just stiffer shocks and torsion bars no differance in tranny or axles.
