years ago I remember that GMC and its twin, Chevy put out a 1/2 ton (1500 series) pickup that they called a "Heavy-Half". It had some beefed up suspension parts and probably larger brakes. It was very popular for a while as I recall. I'm thinking 70's and maybe 80's.
Does anyone know anything more about these hybrids?
Are such still offered?
Are there reliable tow capacity figures on line for older pickups?
I am seeking a 95-98 F250 powerstroke diesel, club or crew, but need to do more research. Was there by any chance a 1/2 ton Ford Club diesel "Heavy"?
BTW it has always galled me that if a 1500
or a 150 series = half ton who determined that a full one-ton would be a 3500 or a 350 series? Not to mention the 2500 and 250 series 3/4 tons.
Musta been cousins to the head trailer namer at Airstream.
