Like others have said, the Cedar Creek 36CKTS has a GVWR of 16,500 lbs & pin weight over 2,500 lbs, so IMO that places you squarely in 1 ton diesel territory... A lot of folks like the extra stability provided by the 8' bed & dullies but there are other factors that complicate folks' choices. For instance, I personally cannot consider an 8' bed or dullies at this time because it won't fit in my garage & I prefer not to leave a $55K+ investment out in bad weather 24/7....
