It is not a 1500HD. All the actual 1500HD trucks came with the 6.0

I think 1500HD only came in one cab style also, that was crew cab with "standard" bed which is 6.5 ft long. A half ton crew cab will be a "short" bed, something like 5' 8" long.

Dead giveaway is the number of lugs on the hub. 1500 will have 6 while a 1500HD will have 8.

Hey! The manufacturer constantly makes changes and improvements to the vehicle design. The goals and level of these changes may be different, but it is important that two cars of the same model, released at different times, can seriously differ both in their design as a whole and in the "stuffing". I had the same problem. I checked the Vin code on a website. And the equipment was different.
