    I cant figure it out for the life of me.

    Between the exact same year truck with the same options and RPO codes what is the difference between these two?

    Chevy 2500HD Diesel/Allison Combo

    Chevy 3500SRW Diesel/Allison Combo

    TIA

    Probably nothing more than

    1. How much you can legally tow
    2. How much it will cost at the DMV to register

    When you consider the extra weight involved in a DRW truck. It's probably more like 750lbs.

    Well I missed that part.

    05 CC Dmax/Ally 3500 srw GCWR 22,000
    The dually alows 1500 more but the vehicle is also heavier.

    Sorry I messed up.
