I have driven that section of the Thruway many times. Just yesterday westbound and today eastbound. The surface is not note-worthy in a 3/4 ton Suburban 4x4 , but our 2018 F-450 4x4 crew cab dually bounces VERY noticeably at 65-70 mph with the truck empty except for 100# + tonneau cover and a 200-300 pound 5th wheel hitch. Tire pressures 80/70 cold F/R.

Definitely a QC issue. You should have one on both sides.

On my second f350 SRWLB. First was a Ď12. Now an Ď18. No death wobble on either. Cement slab freeways: 85 mph is the magic number. 65 to 85 is a disaster from my experience on both my above mentioned trucks.
Sidenote 1: Id post a pick but mine looks like all the other stock lariats. Nothing special bout mine.
sidenote 2: Iím not slandering standard length or short beds or whatever they are called. But I personally donít understand it. Itís a truck. The bigger the bed the better. Itís already a massive beast of a vehicle, just get the big bed and be done with it. Iíve never heard a man say ďI wish a had a shorter (anything)Ē

VERY WELL Said Mowjob

IF you USE a truck, shortbeds won’t hold enough cargo. Period.

Hauling two motorcycles, 8ft lumber, 4x8 sheets, couch/love seat : whatever & being able to SHUT the Tailgate to secure your load is priceless.

I insist on a longbed. This is my first CC/LB however. I like that I don't have to worry about popping a rear window, or worse, when maneuvering my 5'er into a tight camp spot (not RV park) and that I can fit a quad in the bed WITH my toolbox and still close the tailgate (I do put the front wheels on a pair of shop ramps to keep the winch hook from rubbing the toolbox). I'm finding the Ultimate camera to be pretty handy; just have to learn it. My 85lb. dog loves her new comfy rear seat, too. Looking forward to my new seatcovers when they arrive.

Picking up our 2011 5th Wheel after trailer's body & paint work at Mike's Custom Painting, Bremen, IN for damages that occurred when the door-side trail air suspension collapsed back in April. Went ahead and had the trailer repainted in 2011 colors. New, shiny "decals" are now painted on. Though not shown in this picture, we finally got around to installing a new adapter and hitch while we're in the Elkhart area. We now have 7 inches of bed-rail clearance at the hitch. Trailer goes to MORryde Monday morning to have the old suspension cut off and the IS Suspension installed so trailer rides level. We're also adding new steps, and a storage box where the old steps were stowed for travel. David

I don't ride Mules, But that has not stopped me from hanging out with the mule club on more than a few weekends. I try to make one or two trips a year into the Uintas from China Meadows. I ride as much high country as I can before the snow pushes me south and into Utah's Red Rock country in the winter.

How big of a lift did you have to add for the 37", I've been considering the 37's when I replace my 35's this winter. But I'm only leveled and not too interested in going any taller. Just need more load capacity than what most 35's offer.

I suspect there is also a fuel mpg hit that comes with the taller tire.
