Saw a a dealer from my rv store and when we go in Thursday, he suggested a MoRyde Rubber pin box and an adapter Pullrite capture plate to mate them up and that should deal with the bucking. What is everyone’s thoughts on that suggestion

You do have a capture plate on your current pin box don't you? The Pullrite must have a capture plate to work correctly (not sure it would slide/work at all without one)

It most certainly does have a capture plate, it’s the only way the hitch will work

Dealer service manager and tech road with us on a trial ride. Said surging will most likely be corrected if I get a Moryde rubber pin box. But the clunking back and forth they said is normal for the hitch. But he did take a video of me stationary jerking it from forward to reverse and is sending it to Pullrite, so we'll see what happens next. Not sure I want to spend anther $1000 plus on a Moryde pin box just to stop some surging and bucking, but that will depend on how much the wife complains.

Well I agree that the towing experience will be better with a 3500 DRW, the difference between a 2500 and 3500 SRW is minimal. The issue most overlook is that the 5er needs to ride as smooth as the TV! you want a smoothest ride possible 5er, level, tires balanced, and good working shocks. You also need decent pin weight, the TV also needs very good shocks.
I pulled/carried a 12,500# 5er with a 2,700# pin on a 2001 Ram 2500 for many years and smooth doing just that TV was 1,700# over GVWR, and didn't have or need air bags.
