The biggest consequence I can think of having bars that are too large but still in range (assuming you set it up right) is a bit rougher ride. If you buy the smaller ones and max them out you can damage your TV or have to buy the larger bars.
My "dilemma", such as it is, was brought about by my already having both bars (one marked 750 on the round end of the bar) and the other marked 1,000 (same place). I had them from two different trailers in my past so it was just a matter of choice of which one to go with.
I was leaning toward the 1 K's but I thought I'd toss it out for recommendations. A pair of bars are a pretty hefty weight all in themselves so if I don't need the 750's I'll put them back where they were stored.
