Thinking about a high roof van. What is the difference between a 1500 and 2500? I have been searching but the only differences I have found is an increase of 350 ponds capacity for the 2500.

I think the main differences are probably spring rates and the fact that you can't get a 2500 in the shortest wheelbase.

Ollie, Thanks for the link. Just seems like their should be more differences. If I want a high roof in in a 136 wheelbase I should just go with the one available or can get the best price on.
