Hi I'm working with my dealer today to trade my x300 with the trans out of it for a x500 and the dealer has them with 48" or 54" decks. My yard is mostly open not alot of trees and no gates but it is bumpy and a little uneven witch would work better? Thank you for your help.

In theory, the narrower deck will work best on uneven areas. Having said that, I have used 54" mowers on my JDs for years and I find them to be very good. They have a wide roller on the front and 4 guide wheels all of which help keeping it from scalping high areas.
