Default 2006 megacab 1500 with 8 lugs?

My dad recently bought a 2006 megacab 1500 4 x 4 with hemi. I noticed that it had 8 lug wheels. Is there any chance it has 2500 running gear under it? Does anyone know what the difference is between this and a 2500?

I want to say yes the mega cabs have the 2500 frame under them.

I think this because you have the 8 lugs and they eliminated the mega cab option on the 1500 later on. You can now only get the mega cab on the 2500 and 3500 models now.

I have the same truck, an 06, I believe "1500" is the series as indicated by the VIN, the VIN also indicate the truck is a 2500. The truck was built on the 2500 long bed platform with the cab extended and the bed shortened. If you decode your VIN, you'll see what I mean.
