RED-85-Z51 is on a distinguished road
Default 2500 Light duty or Heavy duty?

Not sure if this is the right section for this kind of question, ive spent 10 minutes looking for a section for this and I cant find one..so I guess General it is.

Ive had a ram in the past..a 98 1500 SLT Laramie, loved it...went through 4 trannies in 223,000 miles, but otherwise a great truck. I sold it a couple years ago and bought a couple GMC's, a Dually C3500 and a 94 Z71. Also great trucks. But I want another ram, I want a 2500 HD.

I found one nearby, about an hour away...he's vague on some stuff, but it looks like its equipped similarly to a 2500HD I looked at earlier this year.

5.9 Gasser
46RE Automatic
Long bed
Ex cab
4X4

Now, I havent driven to see it yet, and he doesnt know if its a 2500 LD or HD. I previously thought that anything with a 360 gas engine, was a LD. Then I saw a few with the 360 and Dana 60's front and rear..which I understand, makes it a HD.

Is there a Vin number I can have him look for, or a tag somewhere that definitively says LD or HD?

Here are some pictures

Cant tell, but it almost looks like it has a full floater rearend..the way the hub sticks out, or it could be a center cap/cone?

Yes, you can obtain a build sheet with the VIN number by visiting the dealer or emailing Chrysler.
