For the extra $1,200 bucks, get a SRW 1 ton. That was what I intended on getting, ended up with training wheels on the back.

The 3500 (SRW) will give you another 900 lbs carrying weight on a manual truck.

Are you talking about Dave Smith Motors?

I have bought several trucks from them, they are great to deal with.

No commercial vehicles allowed on our parkways. Even if you can scam your way to get passenger plates on a pick-up truck ( I did ),you still can't technically drive it on the parkways around here ( even though most SUV's are bigger and weigh more ). People think that if you have a back seat that you're legal, not true. A couple of years ago alot of dealerships got into a whole lot of trouble for "illegally" registering pick-ups passenger.

On LI, no trucks of any size on the parkways. Robert Moses started that law years ago, and I really don't want to explain why. He was an old school, millionaire developer.
