    Well, after looking at the pics again, I'm not 100% sure it is, the rear springs look like they are 1/2 or 3/4 ton width. It doesn't have hydroboost either.

    Here's the web site, but it didn't work for the given vin #

    Clicky

    I'm not dissing on it though, its a nice truck. Need to take a few of the shocks off it and why do you need plastic "nutts" when you have a 502 inder the hood? Never quite understood that whole thing :rolleyes:

    the "K1" in the VIN says its a half ton, a 1 ton would have a "K3". still a very nice truck for the money.

    No hydro, has np208, and the vin through carfax comes back 1986 k10 5.0.
    What is this guy trying to pull?

    Maybe someone needs to let him know he has a 1/2 ton body, looks like someone already did and he gave them the what not! hehehehehe!

    What makes you think it isn't a 1 ton? Every thing points to and looks like a 1 ton. It's a bit shy of the 14" lift he claims and will have tons of problems if it ever has to go in for emission testing, but, it's a 1 ton.

    Who is the person screwing with him on e-bay? Why do they say it isn't a 1 ton?

    Edit: Looks like we all responded at the same time! Looking over the posts above ... wow, someone ought to tell him his VIN numbers don't match his ride. I missed the lack of hydroboost :doah:

    he says he has a title that says it is a 1 ton, although the vin says 1/2 ton. i would surmise that he is not the original owner and someone has taken great pains to make it a 1 ton. it has 1 ton badges on it but no cab lights.
