Don't think 2000 year is an HD

1 Answer

725

the HD is model specific. basicly to explain there, there is a low end 2500 (non HD) lower price meant for homeowners that need a home depot truck but don't put the weight in it every day, and it has the same weight capasity, its just not meant to take that 3/4 ton every day. the HD is meant to be a work truck, taking more abuse and taking the 3/4 ton weight every day. Now as for the weight, inside the door there is a tag that will state GVW and Max load for towing. I am not sure off the top of my head what the weight is, but that is where to look. It may be on the door, ir may be on the cab where the door closes. Hope this helps
