HD has bigger frame rails and beefier springs, Full Floating rear axle to handle heavy loads in the box or heavy tows, Harsher ride empty, More engine options (Big block, diesel), More trans options, bigger payload and more towing capacity.

The list actually goes way further than what tom even wanted to list. Its pretty much taking a standard 2500 and putting every chassis part (steering, suspension, brakes, tougher differentials, on and on....) on steroids. Usually the main difference between a 1/4 1/2 and 1 ton is suspension, with a few other tweaks. The HD is whole different breed.
