    I bought this truck sight on seen cause it was a screaming deal 98 GMC ext.cab long box SUPER clean some grampa owned it and runs like a champ I can always turn it if I don't like the truck.

    My question is this whats the differance between the GMC SL 2500 and the GMC SL 2500HD? I ran the vin and nothing came up. I am assuming I can put a plow on either model?? I also have a 92 2500 with a western on it been plown for 5 years with that truck no problems at all thats why I bought another one but in 92 they didnt offer a HD model. So thus why I am asking the pro's thanks again for your info

    winter is almost here whohoo!!

    98 doesn't have HD either.

    They had a six lug version of the 2500 and an 8 lug.

    Either will carry a plow, but obviously the 8 lug will carry more.

    the 1500 with six lugs is classified as a work series so i have been told. ( i have a 94 1500 )

    All of the 4x4 1500 are six lugs.

    The easiest way to differentiate, the GVW.
