True. The first thing we will tell you to do to the f150 is upgrade to LT load range E truck tires so ride will get rougher anyways. Honestly, I didn't find f250 to ride rough at all. The 3500 rides a little rough but not bad, it is my daily driver as well.

Test drive two F250's, and I thought the ride was good. Didn't go into it expecting a Lexus or Cadi ride. For a big truck, it was a good ride.

My GMC 3500 dually doesn't ride any rougher than my suburban did. At least in the front seat. I've heard from passengers that they can tell it's a hd truck while riding in the back seat. Bigger is cheaper the first time...😁👍

IMHO look at the Dodge 250 - and just get a diesel over a gasser - it will keep you from upgrading in a couple of years

I've had a 78 gmc 1/2 ton, a little dodge dakota 4x4, and now have 3/4 chevy diesel and to me the ride is way better with the diesel than the other 2.

F-250... You'll be happier. As to the diesel thing... I fought the urge too long. Now I'm a happy camper. Congrats on the new rig!

Copy that. All of that !
I don't think I am going to waste the salesman's time with the F150.
Going to go straight to the F250.
Simple math has me towing (pulling and stopping) almost 4 tons of weight with only a half ton to control it?
Never was good in math in school, but I can figure this one out.
F250 at least !!
I will report back the findings.
Thanks all,
RMc

If you're going to go 250 gas, you might as well just go on up to 350 gas instead. There's not much difference in price and shouldn't be much difference in unloaded ride, but you will be thankful that you went that way one day.
