Talking Ride comparison

I just got my 2019 Trademan 4x4 3500 DRW 6.7 H.O.with Aisin and 4:10 gears last Sunday. I can say after hauling with it empty or full , honestly in my opinion, it rides great! Here is how I am comparing it with the following trucks I own now.

1. A 2012 Chevy Silverado HD SRW duramax 4x4 3:73 gearing with an Allison. The Chevy shifts the same way as the Allison and the ride quality is quite comparable even with the Chevy having a independent front suspension, which I was shocked! Now as for the seats they are far more superior in design than the 01 and 03 Dodges I have, even being worn some. Lol NOT the 2019 seats though those are comfy, even being just cloth. lol
2. 2 01 Dodge 3500's 4x4 Laramie DRW with 4:30 gears. These 2 will pull like their is no tommorrow, because they are far from stock both tranny and motor wise, but the ride is horrible empty or pulling heavy! My 1970 military duece and half troop transport with the spring loaded seat rides better!! I only keep them because of their pulling power, but man its rough as hell!
3 My 03 Dodge 3500 4x4 Laramie DRW is the same quality ride pulling as the 01's , but without a load its a hair better for some reason. Lol These cloth seats just were crap from the git go and uncomfortable! That didnt help!
4. 2019 Ram Tradesman Crew Cab 3500 4x4 long box with the new Aisin and 4:10 gears. This thing, so far Lol, is thee best riding truck I have owned so far. Even with not having the upgraded seats that are an option in the Laramie, Long Horn and Limited series trucks.

Hope this makes sense and helps!
