    Rear end is probally a 14 bolt, that is what they used in the previous CUCV line. the pick-up truck versions were rated at 1 1/4 ton as well. the old version also had a D60 front, i know nothing about the new cucv front end. I surprised to see that the have 3.73 gears, the old version had 4.56 mated to a TH400, very low top speed. But the power of the duramax probally makes up for the change in gearing. Maybe some of these options will find there way into the civilian models.

    Ya gotta wonder why GM doesn't make this available to the public minus a few of the military options. Factory 6 inch lift and 35 inch tires? Underhood air compressor? Full floater rear axle? I want one!!! [​IMG]
