How do I tell if I have a "1/2 Ton" on "1 ton" truck?

I've come across this distinction when buying parts, but haven't seen it anywhere else.

I have a 1990 DLX pickup. 22RE, 4 wheel drive. Also, what does the DLX mean?

I work at kragen o'reilly (dont hate), i come across this all the time, matter of fact, every toyota owner in town seems to flock to me. but anywho, i believe it means deluxe, and i believe the one tone was a two wheel drive dually. Wait for some other input though, im not 100% on this.

Hah. I'm not sure what could have possibly been 'deluxe' about this truck...

If you look in our computers my old 91 was listed as "1991 SHT BD DLX EXT CB". Funny stuff eh? stands for 1991 short bed deluxe extra cab. crazyness, but still not as bad as honda, dx, ex, lx, hx, vp, si. or what about olds, calais, brougham, supreme. Or look at the new chevys and fords, fx4, lt, xlt, king ranch, silverado hd, silverado ss, silverado wt. its all a bunch of labeling crap to get more money out of us. i swear when it coms time to buy the mrs. a truck, its going to be an 89-95 pick-up or 4runner, her choice. new cars suck.

The one ton truck that I saw was indeed 2wd but did not have dual rear wheels. Just big brakes and heavy springs etc.

I have seen an RV chassis that had dual rear tires.

I've seen both dually and straight side 1-ton Yotas, but never a 4x4 1-ton.

DLX = deluxe..

I used to own a 1ton..

it was a 2wd (not dually) with something like 3.93's and a 5speed..
it was a long bed 86...I think the 1 tons were only offered until 88 then in 89 with the body change the 1 ton option went out the window..
