Default Mega cab

I currently have a 2008 1500 Quad cab, but i am thinking about trading it in on a mega cab truck. The one i am interested in is a 1500 also.My question is do all the mega cab models come with the 3/4ton axles and suspension? and if so why arent they all just labeled as 2500?

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the early Mega Cabs were 2500's but downgraded in a few ways so they wouldn't be classified as HD trucks. Many states have different licensing and toll requirements for HD vehicles. All current Mega Cabs are 2500.

Yep, 2011 had a 1500 Mega but for 2012 you have to get 2500 to get it. the 2011 1500 Mega has the small bed too -Yuck! IMO.

Just get the 2500 for about $1000 more and have one hell of a solid truck!

The biggest cab offered for a 4th gen 1500 was the crew cab, 2010 to present. If you wanted a mega cab you have to step up to the 2500.
