Chevy only had 150k. It has the 6.0 in it. Will make a much better towing rig for my lawn trailers, and still be able to pull my gooseneck with the tractor or Skidsteer.

Hey Krazy I always thought the 1500hd have 3/4 suspension but only the 5.3 in them. May want to double check make sure your not getting the run around.

Probably not legally. They're nothing special they just have 3/4 ton axles

It's the same truck as a 2500 non HD. 6.0/4L80E, 9.25 front end, 9.5 semi float rear end, 3.73 gears, 8600lb gvwr.

It won't pull or handle the trailer like the Dodge Dually will but it will be fine for local stuff. Won't win any races and you might need some air bags for the rear but it'll be fine.

I trust you just thought I'd throw you a heads up. Good looking truck. I had a 6.0 that ran to 225xxx when I sold it
