In case anyone wanted to know what 2k lbs looks like, here you go.
I had to pick up some blast media (slag) and ordered 40 bags on a skid. But miscalculated the weight - assumed they were 25 lbs bags. Got there, found out they were 50 lbs bags after I saw the truck sag when they got loaded. Ooops. Well I had already bought them and I needed them so I figured here goes nothing. Drove back 18 miles on the turnpike.
Can't say the truck took it "like a champ" because road handling was seriously compromised, but I didn't actually have any problems either. So...everything went better than expected?
ALMOST touching bump stops. You could feel it hitting the bump stops on turns, acceleration, and big potholes.
Don't try this at home.
