    The title says it all...could you get a 3/4 or 1 ton longbed with the silverado package, or was it limited to 1/2 ton trucks?

    K, thanks.

    Now would a 78-79 3/4 have an HD 8 lug 10 bolt or dana 44 front end?
    And did K30's all come with D60's and 14 bolts?

    Wasn't that package called "cheyenne" until 80 or so? My 82 is a silverado.

    I've seen Silverado optioned trucks as just about every kind... 4x4, 2wd, 1/2 ton- 3/4 ton- 1 ton etc...

    I've had or seen Custom Deluxe models, Scottsdales, Silverados, Cheyennes, Bonanzas...

    GMC had their own lines... Sierra, High Sierra, Sierra Grande, Sierra Classic.
