"it was a 2500 but he converted it with axles to be a 3500."

?!?!

Definitely has the HD axles, and also the filler between the grille and bumper.  Maybe the seller is confused by 2500 emblems on the doors of the donor cab or something?  Because otherwise it seems like it would be a big job to graft the straight axle from an HD onto a regular C2500 or even K2500 frame.

I agree, I think there is some lost in translation between the ad maker and the owner. :)

Also the back of cab seems to be sitting nice and high like it would be sitting on the frame kickup
