Being 13 years old some suspension replacement like shocks would make it ride better, different shocks would definitely improve the ride. Check the tire pressure, make sure they are not over inflated.

pickups ride a little rough. Usually the more cab you have the smoother the ride. Pickups with more bed the cab ride stiff while unloaded. If you have a standard cab, that is alot of the reason why. You could get weaker leaf springs, new shocks will only stiffen things.
