Default 2500 and 1500 Differences??

Hello, I bought a 2011 Ram Crew Cab Sprort HEMI with RamBox 5 month ago, before this truck I had a 2007 2500 QuadCab Diesel, I bought the 1500 because of the softer ride and because it's lower than the 2500 so it's easier to fit it inside underground parkings.
Well, I'm not so happy with my 1500, I miss the Diesel and truck ride that my 2500 had.
Now I want to replace my 1500 with a 2500 Diesel and want to know the difference between this 2 trucks, my questions are:
1.- Do both have the same overall lenght
2.- How taller is the roof of the 2500 compared with the 1500?
3.- I'm not sure if the bed of the 2500 is longer than the 1500
4.- The width of both trucks is the same?

Don't get me wrong, I love my 1500 but I'd rather have a 2500.

BTW, Both trucks CrewCab short bed.

Hope someone can answer me this questions.

Thanks

The 2500 cc short be will be a little longer then the 1500. The 2500 short box is 6.5 ft I think while the 1500 is 5'7" I believe
Ram trucks website should tell you the heights if both truck and length/wheelbase

Bed length on 1500 is 6.3 feet long. The heavier suspension on the 2500 makes them taller all other aspects should be the same.

Thank you very much for your answer, you made everything more clear!.

They're almost the same, the CTD is a little longer and taller, but not much.
Now I have to clear up my mind.
