trailer. what you're suggesting is WAY to much of a pain, and on a 1500 that would be a fair load.

as long as storage isn't a prob, you'll love the trailer.

I don't know what your finances are but this would be the truck for you. about:blank

If you're wanting to do mods like that I think you'd be better off with at least a 3/4ton diesel of some sort.

How much is the truck? How much is it going to cost you for the modification? Upgrades to the 1/2ton suspension, like you mentioned. I'm sure you could get a nice trailer for that same price, if you don't already have one.
