I went 6 years after selling my 1500, a 94SE , before I got my current 04.
First thing my wife said?
I liked the old one better!
Same thing my wife said when I traded my '88 1500 for a '13 1800! Sometimes (not often) I agree with her. The 1500 definitely had a cushier ride than the 'more sporty' 1800.
I think you will like your new purchase!
