I think a lot of us have seen that phrase more than once. Is there an air seat out there in the commercial market that worked for you or another solution that works as well or better. Thanks for your help.

No solution for you, but I'll offer another perspective. I have air ride seats, cab.. everything on an MDT, but I hate the wind noise!

Aux fuel tank, tool box with tools,etc. A little weight will help.

I don't understand the ride. I have a '16 Ram Big Horn crewcab, short box CTD that rides better then Ford 150's. Lower the rear tire pressure from 80 psi when not towing. If it's the seat, you must have a Tradesman model. Just get a seat out of a Big Horn or better. Mine are real comfortable.

I didn't mention the truck I'm interested in is a reg cab dually. Crew cabs ride better due to a longer wheel base.

^ This. And if that really isn't enough...call Keldermann or maybe try Sulastic shackles. I've never used them but many claim to soften the ride.
