I used a Dodge 3500 dually 4x4 with the Cummins to pull rv's from the factory to the dealerships for awhile. When I was shopping for my truck I asked the same question and was told the only difference between the 2500 and the 3500 was the heavier spring pack. then you add on the fenders and extra set of wheels for the dually.
As far as the difference between the dually and the single rear wheel. I did a run with a guy driving a srw and me in my dually pulling the same exact 5th wheels. We were heading across Iowa and hit some fairly heavy side wind, he was all over the road while I was still perfectly stable.

|jjseel||Never had a 1 ton with srw. Absolutely no comparison between a 3/4 ton and a 1 ton drw towing, at least in the old days. I used to tow a heavy 25' trailer everyday and went from a 3/4 ton extra cab/long bed to a single cab 1 ton dually. The first couple of days, I actually pulled over a couple of times to make sure that everything was ok, because I couldn't feel anything back there.|

I think DRW stands for Dual Rear Wheels, like a "dually" and SRW is Single Rear Wheels.
Basically what the DRW is for is a wider area to distribute weight on to.

Tow rigs, redux!
Any of you dealership types, or just big truck guys fm way back, see if you can help me out here. What is the difference between a 1-ton truck w/ DRW and the same truck w/ SRW? And if there isn't much, what would be the difference between a 3/4 tonner and a 1-ton SRW, if equipped the same?
I'm narrowing down how I want to travel w/ the TJ, but I don't quite get the differences between what appear to all be about the same truck, just one has an extra set of tires and fancy fenders.
