So I may have found another truck that I just "got to have" on craigslist. It is a 94 4x4 3/4 ton Chevy. Reg cab/long bed (how a real truck should be:)). If I get it, it will be getting a flatbed very soon. Anyway, do you think $3750 is out of line? I think its a dang fair price... Anyway, I guess he has a guy comming to look at it tomorrow, he's gonna call me back if the guy don't get it.

EDIT: Wouldn't that thing look AWESOME with a Boss or Sno-Way plow hangin' off the front of it?

that's not a 3/4 ton. look..six lugs. referred to as a heavy half ton. may have 2500 badge on it, but it is in fact a glorified half ton. don't mean to burst your bubble here, but it is what it is.

Ohh dang... didn't even notice that. Well maybe a heavy half ton would be better for what I need to do anyway? (Possibly plow next year), haul around ONE snow blower, and pull my 16' mowing trailer with 2 Z's in the summer. Will have a dumping flatbed put on there too I guess, if that makes a difference.

Sounds a little hi, also thats not a 3/4 ton. It only has 6 lugs as my 94 2500 is a 8 lug truck and I would check it over real careful as also the title too. Good luck!

someone will correct me on this, but up until the 99 model year I believe, Gm had two 2500's..one a six lug the other an eight lug with a difference in GVWR. All four wheel drive 1500's were six lug and I think you could get the six lug 2500 in two or four wheel drive.

BTW..have you referenced KBB or NADA on this truck yet to get a ballpark figure what it's worth? how many miles? I'm assuming it is a 350 with auto tranny? power anything? windows or locks?

That sounds about right. I thought it was 95 though.

I would second running it though KBB.

KBB said, assuming its got power windows and stuff, in good shape, private party value is $4200 or so.

Then it might be a good price. I would think twice about adding a plow to it.

price sounds about right. better check into the heavy-half, pretty sure it's a different GVW

I believe the 6 lug 2500 is 7200gvrw and the 8 lug is 8600

I push snow with 91 2500 .6lug with old boss 8,2 hanging off the front .It is stock with factory engine oil cooler.It is old and crusty but trusty.If I had run interstate ramps and highways all the time ,I would get something with slighty heavier suspension in front .works fine in town just have to watch the big bumps and dips.

Here is my $.02.

The six lug 2500s are lighter duty than the 8 lug. However, a friend of mine has had a Blizzard 810 on his 6 lug 2500 (diesel too!!!) for 3 years now, plowing commercially and hasn't had any problems. Its a matter of opinion as to if it will be "heavy" enough for you.

If you have plans on putting a flatbed on whatever truck you purchase, this is my opinion on what to do. I'd find an 8 lug 2500 with a banged/dented up or rusted out bed. Why pay the extra cash for a truck with a nice bed if you are just going to take it off. (I know you can resell it. :)) But if you can find a truck with a solid cab and a crappy bed, I'd jump on it.

Anyways, happy truck hunting!

GM used to have the 1/2, heavy 1/2, 6 lug 3/4, 8 lug 3/4, 1 SRW, 1 DRW, and 1 3500HD. IIRC, the heavy halves where all 6 lug. Also, most, if not all diesel 1/2 tons where heavy halves. As stated, there was a small difference in 6 and 8 lug 2500's. A 6 lug 2500 is NOT a heavy half. Then you have the 1 tons, including the C3500HD, available 2WD only (the "C" part, "K" is 4WD). The C3500HD's also had an SFA, 19 or 19.5" wheels, and a body lift. They are easily identifiable by the huge filler plate between the front bumper and grill.
