Has anyone heard of a 2000 Dak with a 5.9 and a towing class of a "heavy half'? Looking to go buy this truck and the guy said its registered in a higher weight class because of the heavy half designation. it would be nice if this were true. ive just never heard of it. im hoping you guys can help me out on this one.

thanks allot guys~

I believe "Heavy Half" was a marketing term coined by Chevy. The Dakota could hold it's own if properly equipped with a tow package. I think the 5.9s could tow over 7000lbs which was the best in class for it's time and could easily match a full-size.

With the factory heavy duty suspension and tow package your truck is rated for either 9200 lbs or 10500 lbs GCVW depending on which rear end gears you have according to my owners manual.
