i do appreciate everyone's help and opinions here. We ended up purchasing the 2500 with the 6.4l Saturday. It has everything we want and nothing we don't. It is also prep'd for a fifth wheel/ goose neck should we decide to go that route later. In the end, it cost us an additional $1500 to get the 2500 over the half ton. It rides nice, its blue and makes the DW happy.

Happy wife = happy life

Just a personal opinion, but you can never have too much truck. I have a '05 GMC Sierra 3500 dually with a 6.6 Duramax and a '15 Cherokee 274DBH. To say the least, I don't have any problems.

If you are going for the weekend or close by than what you have is go. But if in the near future as you go on the highway and byways of this great Nation, than I would upgrade now to the Big Boys Toys. Just saying.

My local dealer had sale signs on their 1500's in the neighborhood of 30k. Their 2500's are running 45k to 70k. I need to change dealers. 😨

Exactly the reason why I ordered a new Ram 2500 with 6.4L/4.10 combo 2 weeks ago. It should pull my current rig like it isn't even there, and give me plenty of room for upgrading in the future. I got mine got right at $36k TTL out the door.
