You might be in the market for new rear tires if you continue with those payloads

I drive a work truck with air bags and they are nice but have limits to me. My 150 has a level with a add a leaf on the rear and that is the way to go. Little rougher ride but really handles loads well and I really like it, cheaper to

Maybe another rear axle and frame if he accidentally misjudges a load or hits a good bump??
Sparkie, honestly, I think it is asking for trouble if you do this on a regular basis. Hope you don't get into an accident and will be held liable.

Nope, manager at a sporting goods store lol. But I do deliveries for home gyms, treadmills and etc. While also picking up orders from the warehouse for all of our weights, (dumbbells, plates, bars) but I also do a little side work with the old man at his welding shop.
