I do not think 1200 lbs is an issue specially since the bed has vertical supports at the front and rear then the wheel wells
we have had lumber racks that support across the bed rails and have loaded thousands of LBS on them between 5/8 drywall and big ole beams
that being said when we pulled the racks and bed liners the bottom of the beds were deformed around the mounting bolts from all the weight LOL
just make sure the across the bed rail is rigid I have seen bedsides bow out due to racks spreading and no tailgate to hold it all together
the center of gravity is a worthy concern however no worse than a cab over or loaded lumber rack IMHO
they sell some cool toppers made for quads to sit on
ps bags mounted at the frame rails aired independently will help sway
Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !
