RAM says same ratio for 3500. Info in pdf below.Another member on here commented about the final drive being higher in the 2500/ 3500 but I can't find the specifications anywhere to prove that.
I would like to know more as well if someone has it!
Can I guess?HR 136 wb 250 can carry 300lbs more than the 150 and the 250 weights 51lbs more than the 150. The 250 costs $1000 more than the 150. So what is it that weights 51lbs and cost you $1000 more?
That's an excellent question. Comparing the different van options on the Sportsmobile sight, it looks like adding the extra 14 inches adds roughly about $750 over the 159 WB 3500 model. That doesn't seem bad to me. However, as you say, going from the 2500 to the extended 3500 is roughly $3000 more. Most of that is upgrading from 2500 to 3500 model. And according to the specs you linked above the upgrade only adds about 14 pounds to a cargo van.RAM says same ratio for 3500. Info in pdf below.
I'm also investigating pros/cons of going 3500. I'm torn between ext body and regular 159 body. I really want the extended body, but RAM requires going to the 3500. I hate that it cost thousands more for an extra 14 inches of length. Sheet metal doesn't cost that much. It makes me wonder what is so expensive in bumping up to 3500.
I have yet to drive a 3500. Local dealer has never had one in stock. Somebody on here said they didn't drive any different.
