Math checks out. What you haulin' in your new luxury land yacht?

F150's ride almost like cars IMO. So by comparison I'd say the Super Duty's ride worse, especially unloaded. It's not unbearable or bad in any sense, just not as plush and forgiving as the half-ton. Which makes sense, you gotta have the suspension to move the weight.


& ya, a beater would be nice but at the same time, I feel like I'd hate my ~60mi round trip every day.
I don't agree with you.

The new aluminum f150s ride nowhere as nice to me as the new alumidutys... ive got a good amount of miles in each.

Agree to disagree. I'm 90k in.

Maybe I just set it up right early on.

When did the alumiduties start? My coworker has a 17 F250 and my F150 rides like a Caddy compared to his Super Duty.

You drove a new alumiduty that much?

I drove an alumiduty yesterday... And drove a brand new F150 home today... The F150 bounces at anything in the road like a hay cart compared to the F150

It shudders over bumps and the SRA bounces almost side to side. I don’t have much experience in any other 1/2 trucks (aside from some GMT800 trucks) but I have driven quite a few 3/4 and 1 ton trucks. They definitely ride firmer (which id assume ) and exhibit the same jouncing unloaded.

At this point, trucks are nowhere near car levels of refinement. They are better than they were 15 years ago, but yeah not that great

No, my truck. I've only demo'd 17/18 KR 350's when I bring mine in for service.


FYI, I'm in a 2015, CC, 6.5' bed, FX4 pkg on 33" LT275/70R18 BFG KO2's & Fox 2.0 rear shocks.

Yea not sure how we can have such different opinions. My coworkers is an XL 4x4 quad cab with an 8í bed. Iím sure the one you drove is a top of the line KR or something so maybe that has a lot to do with it.

My F150 doesnít bounce all over the road and shift side to side like the one guy is saying not sure whatís going on with that...lol

The diesel 3/4 tons ride better then the gassers. The more weight the better.

I need to ride in a new aluminium duty if it rides better then my f150.
