    Yes and no. There is some F-350, 3500's that were Cab and Chassis with a higher weight ratings, and other amendities that personal trucks didn't have.

    My C3500HD is a good example. It basically is built close to or similar to a Kodiak/Topkick 4500.

    I'm on board with this idea. I would love to see more 4500/5500 pics and discussion in a separate area.

    mabye do the gvw spec range of the medium duty stuff. like say 12k-up to 24-26k range then it would be full cdl so not a real med duty anymore.

    just a idea.

    I think one section would not be bad, but if they are going to make 2 it should be 12k-26k as one, then 26k and up for the other

    oldish thread but- why split the 26k+ - I doubt there will be enough action relating to posts for those to justify a whole section to them - Medium duty and up together should do it - and FWIW all truck manufacturer's class the 3500/350 series as light duty trucks regardless of the GVWR.

    True, but, in my case as a light duty truck, it's been built and modified in the same fashion as medium to heavy duty truck.

    So ultimately, when I start asking about my hydro system, suspension, etc.... I would like to get answers I'm looking for.

    Here is a good example.....

    Now, if we had a heavy truck forum, or even a Cab and Chassis forum, I wouldn't of had to of put it in the Ice Management forum and hoped for the best.

    So even if it was a broad range forum from, say, 15K and up, I would still have been able to hone in on the crowd that has the same similar mechanics on their trucks.
