Believe me, I know from experience. I'm not tryin to rag on you too much but when you say, "You can buy all the National, Deaver, etc springs you want....they all SUCK if you want to use your truck as a TRUCK and haul and tow with it." you mean to really tell me youre gonna max out the GCVW???
BTW what part is home made??? All the parts are over the counter, hows that homemade??
Why be such ah cawkhead?
I said homemade...sorry should have said put redneck put together....my bad
And non I am not gonna tow 20K
I have a 10K toyhauler loaded tows perfectly fine....towed my boat today, 4500K plus, and tomorrow I will haul 15 squares of shingles in the bed.
Day after that I will tow my bobcat 873 over to a job then I will again haul my boat to the water.
So yeah....I sure as $hit can use mine as a TRUCK without it squatting like a chevy with a brick in it.
No its not the same as a stock tired, geared, dually.....but that not what I need, I dont haul 20K plus every day.....I drive this every day, and nee to use it for more than a 1/2 ton can easily handle.
I stand by my statement....buy yourself a set of 10" lift deavers....they ride great....but then put 5000lbs in the bed.....it will ride on the bumpstops.....I have done it.....
