not trying to hijack your thread, but since u asked...
the crew cab long bed 250 was a good ride.
especially on the open road where wheelbase and 22 foot of truck matters.
the 350 is even nicer, with the same wheelbase.
while it has double the payload capacity,
the rear leaf stack is a bit more progressive (still firm like german cars) so it's not harsh by any means.
in the corners and with turning it stays especially flat.
i like near zero body roll and the drw provides that in spades.
the turning radius is the same or a bit smaller than the srw trucks.
with double the tire capacity, the 4 rears are only inflated to 55 psi (per ford)
vs the srw which requires 75-80 psi all around when towing.
of course the interior is a generation newer with more features and a much tighter build.
and the moto is very quiet compared to the older impact knocker diesel...
and all those things contribute to increased comfort.
4 rear tires actually spreads the grip and effectively doubles the contact patch...
so it's much easier to spin the tires or power drift.
which is another sorta comfort...
again all the new fords have better suspensions and improved rides,
srw or drw, 4x4 or 4x2 and long or short wheelbases, when compared to the previous generations.
it's still a truck and that's important.
and the fact that the trailer brake controller, mirrors, wiring harness and receiver ALL work perfectly as oem...
makes for a real plugNplay tow vehicle.
