Well if you want a short bed and a reg cab, you have to get a 1500. That combo was never offered in a 2500. A 1500 will hold up well with just 33's, but personally Id get a 2500. Bigger axles, better T case, bigger frame, and it already will sit 2" higher than a 1500.
All Rams were solid axle to 2001. All 2500/3500 are solid front axle regardless of teh years.

You could get a manual in a 1500, but you couldnt get it with the 360.

remember the beefier trannies and rears in the 2500's will soak up more of the hp from the engine.
I disagree on this. Why does the 2500 axle eat more HP? Id think the 1500 axle would zap more HP, due to the axle being a semi float design and axle shafts have to support the wieght of the truck and transmit power to the wheels. That weight bearing on the axle should require more effort to turn than a 2500 rear axle which is a full floater and the axle shaft just has to transmit power and does not carry any weight of the truck on the shafts
