Default My first haul.

Well today at work I did my first weight order for work. Hauled about 3000lbs, and boy was she ******* it haha. Making me want to get a programmer soon. And ill be doin weight orders about once a month, probably won't be that much all the time, but any mods that will help my truck out a lil?

Yup, the order form says 2902lbs, and she was a squatting lol xD. But my other trips will most likely only range from 1000-2500lbs, we were just slacking on our orders lol.

Air bags for sure. I would think twice about dual exhaust if you were considering it, I have dual exhaust on my truck and when I haul heavy loads like that i get leaks and broken mounts from excessive frame twist. The programmer does help some.

no that would make it worse, blocks don't add payload. i would go with a leveling kit in the front and air bags in the rear.
