IDK man...me, I would go with the 1500. I don't NEED or want anything to do with a 2500 cost for maintenance, parts etc. Its bad enough my 1500 costs so much to maintain (am talking just fluids, belts, filters, etc).

You live in the city right? do you have something else (smaller) to drive? I have driven a 1-ton chevy crew cab (farm truck) through downtown Dallas, and let me tell you...better hope you dont have to park anywhere. These gargantuan trucks are ok on the highway and farm country...not so much in the city/suburbs. When my folks sold the farm and moved to the suburbs, we had to do a 3 point turn to get that truck in the driveway. Ended up it went to my dad's brother (who bought the farm from us).
