LD and HD have been used for marketing for years describing various 1/2 and 3/4 ton trucks.

I had a '90 model 2500 LD chevy 7200 gvwr 350 engine 4L60 tranny 4.10 gears 2wd long bed 9.5" rear axle. This truck towed doubles (26' trailer and 18' bazz boat at 10700k gcw) for over 8 years. I ran it for 235k miles and gave it to my 16 year old youngest grandson. He ran it up to 252k miles and sold it to another teen in his town. The old truck is still seen and last report had 312k miles.

Ford has their F150HD 7850-8200 gvwr with 13 different gvwr and 5 different rawr packages.

And lets not forget what a...
LDT.... (covers 1/2 to 3/4 ton and one ton srw/drw)
MDT....
HDT....
is considered.

Over on Dodge/Ram spec website LD has been in use for several years. OP is a bit late his findings.

For the first time the latest commercials from Dodge are now calling their Half ton Dodge Ram's "Light Duty Pickups". The commercials don't verbally say so but the print on the screen is quite clear. I know it is just marketing but then again many of the Ram so called half tons come with well under 1,000# of payload so maybe they have a point.

Pardon my chuckling but after having a Doge Ram 4X4 crew cab guy tell me that my Honda Ridgeline was not a "Real truck" it is hard to keep a straight face. His "Real Truck" comes in at 977# of payload so maybe the new Dodge commercials are right. For the record... Ridgeline, Tacoma, Colorado, Ranger, Yukon and even the Frontier typically have more payload than the venerable Dodge Ram.

Potential "debate / discussion" too hot for you?

Worried about the "flamers" ??

You've been in the Desert too long!

Why not post in the *TOW VEHICLES* forum ??

No guts, no glory (or whatever), ROTFL
