Sloppy Steering?

I saw this post on the Super Duty forum where many were complaining of sloppy steering. Is anyone here having the same issue?
Sure hope my new 2013 F350 dosnt have this issue.

My '12 F250 seems vague at times, I think 35" rubber and a solid front axle are to blame. It sure drives different than my '11 F150 did, but I like it more also...

Mine feels sloppy as well. It was the first thing I noticed on a longer trip. At first driving down the highway in the left lane with traffic was a little scary... but I think I'm just used to it now. My mom noticed it when she borrowed my truck for a short trip with her horse trailer. It doesn't really bother me anymore.

I really have not noticed it on my 08 250. Seems like every Ford truck I owned did want to pull to the left a little.

Mine feels like it is a bit sloppy but from what I have been able to find is the 11 and newer trucks have very slow steering which according to the magazine artice I read is intended to slow the response down when towing. BS or not? not sure but it drives about the same as my 08 Ram 2500 megacab did.
