How can I make my ride more comfortable with less bounce?

Ok.. I don't know if it's just me, but my truck is just way too bouncy for my liking and it comes to the point were the ride is not comfortable for everyone... Is there something that I can do to reduce the bounce so that it will ride comfortable? Sorry, I am not familiar with this, so I really appreciate the help!

Smoother Ride

Check Your Tires For Over Inflated. If They Are Let Them Dowm To 50 Or 55. Get A Set Of Bilstien Shocks.

Does Bilstein give you a better ride?

Shocks

I Believe They Took The Edge Off. A While Back I Aired Up My Tires For Milage And After A Month Of That I Had To Let Them Down And I Think I Could Go Down Another 10. Most Everybody Here Thinks The 5100 Bilstiens Are The Ticket

Dodges are notoriously bouncy rides. I do like how they handle compared to chevys and gms I have to drive which feel like big boats. Bilstien shocks will be an improvement for sure. Getting a better quality ride depends on how much you want to spend. Anywhere from $300 to $6K. Kore and Lorenz are good places to start your research. Good luck!

07.5 6.7L 2500 4X4 Mineral Gray Line-X bedliner, Cooper STT 33X12.5, Walker Evans, Icebox, Thuren Suspension installed, PMT seems to work for now. DPF & EGR still on :

let some air out of the tires, some heavy duty shocks, and/or add some weight in the bed! I have 800-1000 pounds in my tool box at all times it helps alot!

That sulastic thing looks like it works pretty well. Never seen one before. Liftman, how much does it help the ride? For the price it might be worth it to try.
