I need to upgrade my signature to F350 then. I have the camper package and overload springs. Also rear sway that stops the hop on bumps or uneven payment.

Not changing mine until I can put F350 CC Dually in it! ;-)

Just wondering...Does the camper package raise your GVWR to 11.4 k? Or are you still at 10k?

And how do you like that rear sway? Have you driven a SD without it so you can give some personal feedback? I'm interested in that as well. Hate that hop when unloaded. I keep my hitch and lumber yard in the truck unless I need to pull it for a load so that helps a bit. But dang that hop can be so irritating.

A sway bar does nothing for wheel hop. Shocks or added weight will help.

Does the 4x4 dually have the same hop?

I have NO wheel hop. Never. I have my truck tuned and I accel quickly at times. It will spin the tires but never hop. Full 8 foot bed crew cab 4x4 with an auxiliary tool/fuel box and the 5th wheel hitch. The longer wheelbase and weight helps.

The sticker says 9900 for licence issues. The rating on the truck with a camper package says have 450 lbs more payload.
