They did come out with a VHO and Vortec Max option for the Sierra and Silverado 1500 which had a lot of heavy duty options but it wasn't a HD. Biggest differences were the LQ9 6.0 instead of the LQ4 in the 2500's, 4l70e trans, 14 bolt rear end with a locker and an increase towing capacity. Some came with 4.10 gears. But it's still not an HD. It still has a 1500 frame and the trans is still a 4l60e with some upgraded parts.

Today, GM refers to the 2500/3500 as HD and the 1500 as LD.

1500 HD article (link posted above) has a bunch info.

1500 crew shortbed, that is everywhere today, hadn't yet been developed/released when the 1500HD went into production.

Oh no, this is top shelf stuff man.

Insiders only kinda stuff... they'll only negotiate at the topless bar and you have to cover the bill.

You know, one of those behind the shop deals

It certainly beats being grumpy!

It's one of the sad thing that happens to most people... as kids they have fun and are happy, but once they grow up they can't take a joke, think too highly of themselves, and they become grumpy!

Not really, man. You asked if your truck was an HD, but you're being intentionally vague on the specifics of it.

Someone posted earlier that for 1500s it's a moot point cause all of them are considered Heavy Duty these days... and then snowflake posted that just because one has the towing package it doesn't mean it has a more heavy duty booty.

So, it's OK to laugh every now and again... you should give it a whirl, it's lots of fun!

OK, it's settled then... if a truck has the towing package it's mo heavy duty than a truck without the towing package.

Glad you fellas were able to get that all cleared up for everybody.
