Default Differences between 2500 and 3500?

Just curious, always have to be...
What are the differences between the 2500 and 3500 trucks of 2003-2004 range? I know that the 3500 can be had in dual rear wheels, with cab lights, and some other "cosmetic" differences. But is there a difference in the frames? Are theaxles the same (with adaptations for dual wheels in rear)? I am just curious, where are the major differences between the two trucks?
Thanxs!

The only difference is the rear leaf springs.

Yeah, the 3500 have a overload leaf spring. It is just one extra one. And the sticker on the door that says you can tow more.

The axle size is only different if the 2500 isn't a HD. The non HD has a 10.5 rear axle and the HD has a 11.5

they both have the same towing capacity. It's the dually that has a 1000lbs more towing capacity over the SRW 3500

I thought the dually hauled less weight because of the extra weight if the tires
