Ram 1500 4WD 8-cyl

On the highway my truck bounces so bad I have to pull out of the fast lane. While in a turn at highway speeds (65 mph) if I hit a bump my truck jumps approx. Two feet left or right. Sometimes if I hit a bump going straight on the highway it will do the same thing. Sometimes the bouncing is so bad my vision becomes blurred. I had my truck checked by Dodge two times and they say my truck is "ok" and its just "California roads". I drove my neighbors truck which is the same year 4X4 quad cab and it bounced approx. 1/4 of what mine bounces. When my kids are in the back in their car seats they bounce up and down approx. Two to three inches up and down as I drive down the highway. The area I drive in is I80 between fairfield and truckee, ca. My main concern is when my truck hits a bump and jumps out of control at 65 mph or highway speeds. I'm a san francisco police officer and I know this truck has a problem which needs to be fixed before some gets killed.
