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.

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