boostjunkie1 thank you so much for the advice and all the information provided, well actually yes i want the truck to work at my farm, and i know both a 1500 or a 2500 will work for me just fine... about the mpg i have listened and read that 2500 is more fuel efficient than the 1500, it is true that both gets almost the same mpg, well not when towing, but here in my country a diesel gallon costs approx. $2 and the Gas gallon costs Approx. $3... so what you about this?? more mpg + diesel being more cheaper than gas = money saved??
in the other hand thanks ph3nom3non03 for your comment too... and in that i also agree with you, in Honduras dodge Ram, Silverado, F150 etc etc they are consider to be a extreme high fuel consumption trucks! so the truck costs let say $45,000 brand new, next year you can hopefully get $12,000 for it, yes! that bad is having a Gas Truck here, so having a 2500 Diesel Engine will keep or even increased its market value after a while..
i post this question because i wanted to know the big difference on having a 1500 or a 2500... but it seems that the 2500 always wins the polls... maybe another members can contribute with their comments and see at the end which model wins
but yes boostjunkie1 as you said, at end i'm the one who will end owening the truck jejeje, one curious detail i will like to ask you is... what are the costs of giving maintenance to a 2500 cummins???
regards to all
