Kind of a "spork" question
I'm not really sure where this belongs, like a "spork", so I'll ask it here.
Looking to upgrade my current tow rig from an 08 Ram to a new 350 dually. I like the Ram, just sucks for long distance comfort (cheap leather, horrible padding, small quad cab). We see a lot of Ford's at every campsite (nearly 6:1 over everything else) and I'm curious as to why; are they really that much better at towing a heavy fiver (current rig is a 34' toy hauler, usually loaded to over 12,000)? My main concerns deal with seat comfort; how do they fare on long hauls of over 600 miles at a stretch? Cloth or leather more comfortable?
I've been wanting a new SD since selling the 2000, but couldn't pass up the deal on my Dodge. Basically, it will come down to details and cost:
I want an XLT crew 4x2 (only use 4x4 to back RV onto lot at home, mainly due to being grass and dirt; will pave next year) with almost no options except work related (fiver hitch, bed step, Power Scope, rapid heat, etc). She (read US) wants a loaded KR 450. That's more of a personal issue, but would also like feedback on if the higher trims really make a comfort/fatigue difference while towing.
