I hate you more and more every time you post!

Haha. Just kidding with ya. Love the truck. I see you went with mine and others advice with the custom 6" leaf pack. Everything should work out good for you. Did you just go with a 6" pack or 6" + a couple hundred pounds? Give us some specs!

Yes I went with 6" Pack + 300LBS for gear I may have down the road. I do have a stereo in it witch is around (sub and Sub box) 75LBS, plus camping gear it should be about right.

I have a real big issue with trucks that sag in the ass end lol.....

I like the back to sit slightly higher then the front..

I hate blocks! Hate them!

Ya, I don't like the famous Toyota sag ass either, or on any truck for that matter. I'd rather have a slight rack so when the bed is loaded, you don't have headlights pointed to the sky.

No pun intended with all the sexual phrases. Haha

How do they get it to Hawaii by ground? They must have a long snorkel on the truck.
