Perhaps a change of shocks might be in order. I just ordered a set of Bilsteins for my '04. Another thought is the amount of rubber between the street and the wheel. With 20s, seems like the tire choices are more in the category of low profile tires. That's one of the reasons I opted to not order mine with the 20s.

Consumer reportdid a review and said the Dodge rode rough with the 20" cartoonish tires. It does make a difference.However,I love the height the cartoonish tires give and I get alot ofcompliments on them. Like "wow it's got 20's on them,no truck comes with them". However, it also affects the turning radius. I can't turn as sharp.
My truck has 20's on it but it rides better than my friends 03 model. The only difference is that his truck came with the goodyear eagle tires and mine came with goodyear wranglers. His tires are wider and lower profile and mine are a little skinnier and what appears to be taller. Tires do make a big difference! MS
I find this entire discussion rather strange. I mean it's a truck. It's gonna ride like a truck. If you want something that rides smooth get a car. Besides I have a 04 QC w/the 20's and I find the ride not all that bad.<IMG src=smileys/smiley1.gif border="0"> </P>
My '04 QC 4x4 w/20" wheels is the best riding truck I've ever
owned. I suspect Mississippi has a point about less rubber giving
a rougher ride. My truck has 60-series tires on it, which is a
good balance between sporty and functional. Do you know the specs
of your stock tires?
More rubber is your best bet. Changing the shocks may affect your handling and/or load carrying ability.
Sorry for taking awhile to get back, my password wasn't working. The Tires are Goodyear Eagle LS 275-55-20 They are not the lowprofile try of tires. My last truck had very low profile tires and didn't ride this rough. The only thing that was done to the truck was 2" drop shackles, maybe someone else has install shackles on there truck.
