    I just bought a new 2010 2500 4x4 reg cab with the 6.7 and it rides like crap, my 03 rode way better than this one does. Over at dodgetalk everyone says the 2010 rides way better than the 3rd generation trucks did and i find this hard to believe. My truck came with Michelin tires and im running 5lbs less than what is recomended and it still doesnt help. I know this is a work truck but damn.

    Just think of it as all new parts ;). Maybe once it breaks a little in it will be better? I hope it rides OK...I plan on getting one sooner than later.

    I love my 2011, well other than fuel mileage which I'll be taking care of this summer.

    Well i found out why it rides like crap, i guess Dodge put some type of a gel or hydraulic thing under the cabs in all of the extended cabs but not in the regular cabs, that explains why all the guys with extended cabs are enjoying the ride they have over the 3rd generation trucks.
