Help me improve my ride comfort

I have a 2000 F250 4X4 7.3 PSD with 109.850 miles that is all stock that I would like to improve the ride comfort, I pull a boat every now and then and stay on the paved road 90% of the time should I go with Monroe Reflex shocks or Bilsteins and are there any other mods that I could do that would help smooth out the ride.

Bilstein's beat monroe every time. Look at KYB mono-max shocks also.

Just FYI, I just installed the Bilstein's. I really can't tell a difference between the KYB's and Bilstein's.

Bilstein's will make a big differance if you are using factory shocks still.

Air Bags by firestone running 20-30 psi will help level your stock suspension, as well as smooth out your ride a bunch. I put a leveling kit on my F-250 which consisted of add-a-leaf, which made my ride very firm. I just got these new bags from truckspring.com, they were $250, they are awesome!
