    Mechanically they are identical. Only thing different are body styles, Interior may be a little different but they are the same truck.

    Is it as tough as the other years...Or did they stretch it thinner to bring down cost....

    I have always known old Chevy's and GMC trucks to be much the same as well... But when you do the build the truck on there websites...there's a big difference In price...and the options seem to be laid out differently as well...and I don't see a 3500 series 4x4 without the duels.
    1 Option I see Is the snow plow package...comes with a heavy duty alternator 160 amp...and the wiring for a lite on the roof...But no beefed up front springs...I would think they should offer a heavier duty front end

    I know with Chevy you can get a 3500 SRW, I dont know about GMC. The only difference is a couple options, exterior and a little interior difference.

    No diff at all. I prefer GMC's though. I have 2 NBS 07's and an 02 all with DMax'x and I can tell you, you will love the NBS trucks.

    I've got 3 GMC's and love them! I've got a buddy with a Chev silverado and it seems like he's always fixing something on it. he just replaced the tranny last month?
    someone once said that Chevy makes cars and GMC makes trucks!

    Same truck, minor differences in the interior and different style front headlight and grill. It all comes down to which style front end you like better.

    ya.. the look. you cant get an 09 chevy to look decent. but you can get a decent looking Gmc. the only difference is the grill that makes the difference.
