    Hi, I was told today that I need a "Heavy Inspection" ( sticker on front bumper) on my 2011 Chevrolet 3500 dump because the gvw is 13,200. The dealer always has done a "lite Inspection" ( on the window sticker). Anybody else in NY do a heavy inspection on a 1 ton?

    Nope. All the NYS inspections done on my F450 (15k GVWR) were regular inspections on the windshield. All were done by a shop that does repair and maintenance on medium duty truck applications as the majority of their daily work. I trust they would know what inspection is needed for what. They did do one truck inspection for me that was a "Heavy Inspection" an a 33K International.
