The GVW should be listed on a plate that you can see when you open the drivers door. My 2500 is 8600 lbs GVW

What is the rate on a 4 ton truck?

You need to contact your local licencing authority. The rate payable might depend on the payload capability or on the gross vehicle weight or even the train weight if it tows a trailer.

In the UK what used to be known as a three tonner became a 7.5 tonne vehicle under European rules (payload vs. GVW) but this applied only to goods carrying vehicles. When used for private purposes such vehicles were known as heavy motor cars and licenced at the same rate as cars.

The rules on such things vary depending on State, region or nation...

The serial number on my old jeep truck is 3406X10258. What year is it?

I couldn't find the exact year from your serial number only a year range which is 65-71.

Your serial # breaks down as follows.

34 = 1965 - '67: J-3000 4WD, Gladiator or 1968 - '71: J-4000 4WD, Gladiator
06 = 1965 - '70: Cab & Chassis, Truck or 1971: J-2500 Cab & Chassis, Truck (This means it did not come with a bed from the factory.)
X = 1965 - '67: 6000# GVW or 1968 - '70: 6000# GVW, also console shift Wagoneer (1414X) with exterior metal type feature panels or 1971: 6000# GVW, J-4600, also console shift Wagoneer (1414X) with exterior metal type feature
1 = 1965 - ' 71: Left Hand Drive

You should be able to narrow it down a bit more, however it's going to take comparing pictures of the various years within 65-71 and looking for changes to the style such as grills, headlights etc.

.want to know how to stop my rear wheel lug nuts

I would use a torque wrench to torque down the lugnuts to manufacturer's specifications. Make sure the right wheels are on it.

I would use the standard lugnuts originally found on the vehicle. I assume the wheels are steel and not aluminum alloy?

2005 chev cobalt

I am sorry, but the factory default radio in all 2005 cobalt models does not have auxiliary audio input jacks anywhere. I wish they did.

Thanks for using the fixya forums!
