This truck has a violent vibration bouncing osilaltion on the freeway. Other truck don't do this. The dealer says no problem with it and they wont do anything. I complained after 1 mile of ownership. The truck is not safe. No statement was given to me that I was getting a truck that can't be used to drive at normal freeway speeds. Adding 500lbs in the bed does nothing to help.then I was told I need a camper added so I got one. It's a $2,200 mistake. Now I am told to try some rubber spring shackles called velvet rides. They seem to make it better except now when applying the brakes the whole truck unloads and the rear lifts up and looses rear traction too easy. Im taking them off im not the only one with this problem with front and rear end problem.

While traveling approximately 45 mph right rear tire came off, and left rear of vehicle collapsed. Rear of vehicle started sliding along the ground when it hit a median and was stopped. Driver suffered neck injury. Dealership examined vehicle, and determined the cause as "customer neglect." *note: On November 25, left rear tire had a blowout because of a road hazard. But, lugs: Nuts were stripped, and tire had to be removed professionally. Please provide any additional information / documentation.
