It's almost 6 and I've been up since 2:30 so excuse me.

What are the differences between 3500 chassis cab, 4500 and 5500? More so I can't seem to tell differences between 4500 and 5500 but maybe I have not looked that hard.

Well, check out the axles, 8 vs. 10 lug, suspension, and even the cab height is different from frame to cab. the difference with the 4500/5500 is suspension, the difference between the 3500 and the 45/5500 is a lot. Brakes, towing/hauling advantages. The engine and trans is the same, but axles are a big deal. 3500= one ton, 4500= 1 and a half ton, 5500= two ton.

I thought the trans in the 45/5500 is the Aisin (sp?) 6 speed auto??
