2017 F-350 anyone towing with one?

Just bought a new F-350 6.7 PS. Won't take possession till tomorrow and will be a couple of weeks before I'll hitch it up to my 15000# FW.
For the record I have been towing it with my 2014 F-350 6.7 PS. Will I notice any appreciable difference?

I'll be selling my 2014 in a couple of weeks 24000 miles, only getting a new ride for tax reasons.

I had an '08 F250 that had the "Death Wobble". Never really bothered my until I became a parent. Threw me from the right lane to the left lane while doing 78 mph. on I-45. Wife and kid weren't with me but it scared me enough that I didn't want it to happen again. Sold it 2 days later.


Have a '16 F250 right now with 19k miles and it hasn't done it.....yet! LOL

Ram had it the worst but they are much improved since the 13 model front ends came out. Any truck using a solid front axle can get it though, Chevy doesn't have the issue.
I know running several Ram trucks, I have researched it a lot and in Ram, the common denominator is usually a front end lift and big tires.
My 01 started doing it about 350,000 miles and I replaced the track bar which solved it. I had a 98 that was real bad. I have never had it with any of my newer trucks (07, 10, 13 and 14 models) but none of them had lifts.
