Great post. I've had 1500's and 2500's and noticed that the 2500 certainly will give you a stiffer ride and feels more solid. Personally I like that in a truck. As for the walk, torque will do that, and you'll also get more axle wrap as well. I noticed axle wrap mostly off-road and under hard acceleration, and the worst on washboard gravel where the rear end would bounce especially acellerating on gravel. This will plague every truck and noticed it on GMC's and Ram's and Superduties. Its worse on lifted trucks.

Two great cures for it are lift springs (centering leaf springs on lifted trucks as stock height wint be that bad) and traction bars. I did trac-bars on mine and can hit washboard gravel wide open and skim over in in a straight line with no bouncing or hopping.

I've hit it 80MPH, not that i recommend it, but it held up way better!
