    No it has the solid front axle. It is the 3500hd 15,000 lb gvw, 2x4, detroit locker in ther rear end. The front end is sitting a little low in these pics, since then I put some timbrens on the front and raised it up a little.

    Looks great. I have that same truck in a 1999.

    I hope those blue ratchet straps aren't the only thing holding that salter in place!

    Thanks guys. Jay brown- They are ther 19.5" tires. Hercules s-309, so far I have been pleased with them, good traction and don't squat hardly at all under a full load of salt.

    Cet- The rachet straps are holding it down, however I also have 8 - 5/8" pins going through the spreader and framework on the truck to keep the spreader from sliding around. I appreciate all the posts you have made over the years about your 3500hd, that played a part in giving me the confidence I needed to buy one of these trucks for snow removal.

    I hope it works well for you. With weight in the back ours was a great plow truck. It is now a dedicated salt truck only because we have so much salting to do. We still plow with a 2003 gas 3500 with a 8'6" straight blade and Western pro plus wings and it is 2WD. Good Luck.
