...The interior of the Titan made me feel like I had won first prize at a tupperware party... The Titan just can't compete with its traditional (read, state of the past) 2 wheel steering..."
Comments like that tells you he isn't dumping on the Titan? Besides this thread was about dimensions on the "Ford F-150, Nissan Titan, GMC C/K 1500 Series" as stated above. That was the point of my post. This thread isn't about why somebody went out and bought a 2500 series.
There are plenty of other threads where you can bash/trash/gush about... whatever truck you want.

My 2500 is a LD (light duty) it was what until 2003 was known as the 1500HD. GMC calls it a 2500LD this year to differentiate it from the new 1500HD which has the short bed like the supercrew and titan. The 2500LD has a 6.5 foot bed. Bottom line, my truck is for all intents and purposes a half ton. Yes, it does have a six passenger, split bench front seat, leather interior. I don't need a car magazine to do a cornering comparo, two minutes behind the wheel with the quadrasteer told me all I needed to know. Lastly, read my previous post...I liked the Titan, still do, and I don't think mine is the best truck on the road. It was and is the one that best meets my needs. It doesn't hurt that I also think it is the best looking. Crew cab trucks are really coming on strong, I'm anxious to see if the 4WS will be reliable enough to make it common place on long wheel base vehicles from all manufacturers. I hedged my bet with an extended warrenty...just in case.

has a GVW of 8600 lbs; same with the 1500HD crew cab. That's not a 1/2 ton in my book.

Both the 1500HD and 2500LD have 8 hole wheels, full floating axles, load range E tires etc. A 3/4 ton by any other name is still a 3/4 ton. The 1500 HD and 2500 LD have same frame and rear axle as pre 2000 2500 HD. The 1500 HD was just a gimmick to give GM a 1/2 ton crew cab until true 1/2 ton crew cab was ready. The 2500 LD has now been discontinued.

The 2500 LD has now been discontinued
It's still listed in the '04 Chevy and GMC brochures.
8600 GVW has always been a HD 3/4 ton. I believe the F-250 Super Duty and Dodge 3/4 ton models are still rated at 8600 pounds. Yes, the the GM 1500 HD was nothing but but marketing smoke and mirrors.

Bob you are right I got my information about 2500 being discontinued from Kelly Blue Book site. They say not available after 10/10/03. Should have known to triple check anything I read on internet.

I have a 2003 Ford SC is it worth the 217.00 for this system and how much horse power would it add.
#23 of 23 GVW comparisons?

Does anyone know where I can get a listing of GVW for many cars, so that I could compare them? thanks.
