Default f350 crew cab or f350 dually

Im in need of a large truck. I have a midsize and it cant take the abuse or carry much more then a yard and a half.

I like the crew cab because I can bring workers. Has a nicer flatbed and headache rack. I dont like the gas mileage and extra weight.

I like the reg cab because its a dually. Should get better gas mileage. New exhaust. I think its the heavier duty chassis frame. Its slightly cheaper. It looks a little more beat up and is a further drive to look at.

I realize neither will get great gas but 3-5 mpg through the year is a major difference. Neither is 4wd which is almost a deal breaker to me since I cant plow.

A 1996 f350 crew cab flatbed. 2wd 7.5L Gas 460.

A 1996 f350 reg cab flatbed dually. 2wd 5.8 gas.

Well I would first have to consider how many people I would need to transport.

Then as far as plowing, wouldn't you want to go with a smaller truck so it would be more maneuverable?
