Do heavier trucks take bumps better than lighter trucks?

    A heavy duty truck that is empty will be very rough.

    A light duty truck that is so fully loaded that the suspension 'bottoms out' will also be very rough'

    A snub nosed truck with the cab and driver above the wheels will also be rough.

    '

    But yes, the wheels will go up and down over the bump and the heavy mass including you will not move much.

    Even though weight is a factor, the stiffness of the suspension system is the real contributor.
