if you're hauling a bunch, get the OME Dakars, they did great with a snowmobile in the bed and two more on the trailer.

You sound like a perfect candidate for the Leaf Spring TSB; contingent on your warranty of course...

Wow. Seven leaf rear springs versus three? Does the rear have any give to it? Must be super stiff.

It's actually not too bad, a lot more stable and they still have some give. The OME shocks are a good pairing as they are pretty "softly" valved (N182). I've hauled several loads (half yard at a time) of crushed rock in the back and the springs definitely flex with that much weight, but still rode above the bump stops where the stockers crashed the bumpstops if you put a gallon of milk back there.

So where's the pics of the stockers going inverted?
