Most Half ton pickups are using 9.5 - 9.75" ring gears these days. I know at least two that have E-lockers (Toyota and Nissan). All are using a semifloating rear.

I have no info on the frames.

No idea what if thats good for bad. I figure its all American, either way.




I am NOT trying to say anything BAD about your truck. I compared it to a half ton pickup. It has the a payload and towing capability of a 1/2 ton pickup. It has engines, transmissions, transfer cases, and axles comparable to what is available on other 1/2 trucks.

I'm really not trying to pick a fight. Just because I looked up the answer for someone who asked a question doesn't mean I'm trying to be a know it all.

I think its fine for any of your towing needs. I believe I said that.
