I previously had 2 each F350's, both dually, 1 4WD, 1 2WD. Both were pretty stiff when unloaded, but not as bad as one would expect.

Once hooked up though, it's amazing how much "softening" effect a ton and a half of pin weight has on rough rides.

I wouldn't let the ride quality be the determining factor.

My Dually rides well like a one ton dually that means rough. Its job is to pull a heavy 5th wheel and it does that just fine. By comparison our Honda auto has a smooth ride but will not pull much.

I have a 2012 F-350 DRW and mine rides good. Have pulled for up to 8 hours a day and feel great afterwards. Driving around unloaded is just as good a ride.

Have a 2011 F350 long bed dually and we have no complaints about the ride, in fact it is very comfortable either with pulling our 5er or just out riding around. Semper Fi

I have a F350 2011 SRW so it is not the same as what you are looking at but I saw a couple Driving/Automotive review shows that describe the F350 as jumpy when empty but stable and smooth once loaded.

I can attest that my truck fits that description perfectly. It drives smoother with the Fiver than without.

What do you guys do to your big Dually trucks to make them ride so smooth. Mine does not ride smooth. It rides much better with the 5th wheel attached but smooth is not how I would describe the ride. Now mine is a heavy Duty Ford, Camper package, Snow plow package which means heavier springs, I also have rear airbags to keep the rig level. It is a pulling beast.It is not uncomfortable But I know I am driving a big truck pulling a big 5th wheel. Smooth?????
