I am new to these M880 series Dodges. I absolutely love the one I recently found and bought (rust free 1976 M882). I do know that these are basically civilian W200 Power Wagons. I also understand that they have the exact Dana 44 front, Dana 60 rear that the civilian W200 use. However, the question I have is this. The W200 is rated as a 3/4 ton truck. The Military rates the M880 series truck as a 1-1/4 ton. Why does the Military rate it much higher than Dodge does? I am under the impression that the springs are the same that are used on the W200. What exactly is it that makes the M880 series a 1-1/4 ton rating?
