    the 1500 hd is basically the 2500 hd minus the 2" lift. essentially it is a 2500 frame from the older 99-00 2500 pre hd stuff. good solid truck imo.

    1500HD is (as stated above) basically the "old" regular 2500 (OBS '88-99) with (I believe) a 8,600GVW (might be less on the 1500HD). It's stronger than a regular 1500, but not as strong as a 2500HD. If it's in your price range and good shape- go for it- it's a h*ll of a lot more truck than a regular 1500.

    i run 2 1500hd, and i love them, the great thing about them too, is they came loaded (usually). i pull loads of weight with both of mine and the only reall difference is that the frame is heavier on a 2500hd, other then that same trucks

    depends where you are at a 2500hd where i am is usually more money with the same options. the big difference is the 1500hd is seen as a bit of a luxury truck, (big truck to pull expensive toys) so they come loaded, i have seen them with sunroofs, upgrades stereos etc. Where as the 2500hd is usually plastic mat and manuel window/seats

    They were the same as a standard 2500 but came with 3.73's instead of 4.10's
