Thanks for the helpful comments.
I have a 2500 Burb, and if you are going to tow, it would be what I would get.
Of course, if you are going to tow a couple of times a year, maybe the '05 1500 would be enough. The $15,000 cheaper price would pay for a lot of "reliability".

Again, thanks for the comments and advice.

The 2500 and the 05 1500 each got sold before I could make an offer. I decided the 07 had more bells and whistles and expense than I needed. Today I purchased a nice 06 1500.

Now, to get a vintage trailer...

It's not the Z71 with 4 wheel drive, it is 2 wheel drive and he says it rides great. Doesn't a 2500 have stiffer suspension? Does the Z71 1500 2 wheel drive have stiffer suspension than a 2500?

I wasn't aware that the Z71 option was available in 2wd, don't think I've ever seen one. It is a pretty stiff option though, friend has a Z71 Burb and it's quite a bit rougher than our 2500.

He may be mistaken. I had always thought the Z71 was a 4x4 option only until he told me his wasn't. He didn't know which motor he had either so there is a good chance he is mistaken. I've never understood guys that don't know what engine is in their ride.
