Light truck frame material specification

Can anyone help me with a current typical steel specification for say a light truck (half ton pickup) ladder frame?


RE: Light truck frame material specification

Another specification is SAE J2340 Categorization and Properties of Dent Resistant, High Strength, and Ultra
High Strength Automotive Sheet Steel
, with HSLA grades being commonly used.
