    According to my information sheet, the max tow rating for the 6.0 1500 HD is 8300 pounds. Max tow for the 6.0 2500 HD is 12000 pounds. Payload for the 1500 HD is 3139 where the 2500 HD is rated at 4074.1500 HD has the 6.0L gasser only. 2500 HD has the 6.0L or 8.1L gasser and 6.6L DuraMax. The 1500 HD sits slightly lower. And I believe that the 2500 HD came with the taller hood and grille design versus the Avalanche look on the 1500 HD. The 2500 HD frame is taller, and also thicker stock at .197". 1500 HD frame is .157". (standard 1500 is .106") Supposedly, the 1500 HD sits 2 1/2" lower than the 2500 HD version. I think that about it.
