How did I do on this one.....2003 (new) gmc 1 ton dual wheel dumptruck (3500), 2-3yd dump bed, pintle hitch, tarp and roller
gas vortec 6000 8cy engine, air conditioning....complete for $24000.....I drove the ford and felt the gmc was nicer to drive, and cheaper in price.

Hey good luck with her GMC right now are the better looking truck in GM's lineup.Good price for all that stuff you got on the body.Saw a chevy dump and they wanted $8K+ for just the dump body then add all the tarps,plate and hitch. you did good plus the body was an eastern dump brand not a very high end one.

I have a '99 GMC 3500 HD with that same engine, nice work truck, even though Im a Ford guy, but GMC's look better than the Chevy's :D
Have fun filling that gas tank alot, best I think my 18gal tank will get is about 140mpg at most, but I've been averaging about 130mpg.
Plenty of power though, enjoy the new GMC professional Grade truck ;)

Mk,

Believe it or not the 12-13 mpg will be an improvement over the trucks I have now. My current dump gets about 9, and my other truck pulling a trailer all the time only gets about 10.

Hummm maybe I do have a good truck for gas milage. But its always hard to tell because my gas gauge isnt accurate, when its at E and i fill up it only fills to 15gals or so, but I think i have a 19gal tank cause today i filled it up to 18.9gal.

Mklawnman,
If I remember correctly, the old 3500 HD has dual tanks.I think one is at the very back of the truck, while the other is located just behind the cab. I used to have an old brochure with the 3500 HD in it laying around, but I can't find it. One of the tanks, I belive, has a 19 gallon capacity. I will try and do some research on this. It has spiked my curiosity.

Okay guys, this may be a dumb question, I'm sorry. This came up on another thread.

This is a "1 ton dual wheel dumptruck", what does that mean? Is the payload capacity 2,000lbs (1 ton)? That's the way I normally understand it.

I'm sure it is just me, my family is in the process of buying a travel trailer, and I am getting all the GVWR, GCWR, GFWR, GRWR mixed up.

To answer Tvov's question about 1 ton trucks, the 1 ton is a truck classification, so is 1/2 ton & 3/4 ton. Normally a regular 1 ton truck with dual rear wheels has a GVWR of 10,000-12,500 lb.

You are correct in you understanding. A "normal" 1 ton pickup would have a 1 ton capacity.
But make that 1 ton chassis a dually and make all the components heavier duty and then you're looking at 5,000lb capacity, but it's still a 1 ton chassis. Make sense?
GVWR is the weight of the truck AND it's load capacity given as a maximum. Mine weighs 7,600lbs (dump beds are heavy) subtracted from the 12,500 GVWR leaves you 4900lbs as a maximum load.

Okay, I understand you guys now. In my area, most guys refer to their trucks using the actual weight capacity.

My truck just has one gas tank the 19gal one, I guess on the window sticker it says that the other optional fuel tank was deleted out of the order.
