you will still have some lift but as the weight bears down on it the spring rate increases or gets stiffer.....
mabye one of the pros will chime in here......

Don't bend the tailgate with the ATV.

what? he has 06. tailgates weren't reinforced until 09 IIRC. Many has posted here about bending them puttin motorcycles and heavy stuff in the bed. One good thing about the ATV is the weight is spread out from the center of the tailgate vs. all the weight being in center loading a motorcycle. Just be aware and be careful is all I'm gettin at.

Helper springs and air-bags are good options for you.

Personally I like the airbags (don't have them on the Taco) since you can increase load cap. when you want to. Set for a Taco is about $250-300.

Helper springs do the trick but they can make the rear super ridgid under load. I put some on a Chevy 2500 a while back, once I had more than 300lbs in the bed it got really harsh (it was fine with a full bed of cement). Granted, the rear didn't sag any but the ride sucked. Make sure you get a lighter capacity on the helper spring; don't way overdue it.

Also, you could go to a leafspring/iron shop and have anything you want made for like $50: zero lift AAL for example, although just adding another leaf will raise the rear .5" too.

Helper or airbag = no lift.

Also, I've ridden quads and dirtbikes across my tailgate many times, it's still straight. Probably would taco it if you put a Harley up there tho.

you went wheeling with my skid in the bak well all the skids .........you crazy s.o.b.

i saw someone on here and he had his overload leaf on along witht the 3 leaf aal....and wheelers chimed in and said that it was fine to do that

You have an 09, betting you have the tailgate that came with proper reinforcement to begin with unlike the earlier ones from 05,06 thru 08.

Yea, but I think that would of put me over 3" lift in the rear with my TSB springs. He might not of cared how high his rear lift was or maybe he was running OE leafs....IDK.

I got rid of my tow hitch and rarely fill my bed up with rocks and concrete so I took it out becuase I didn't want any drive line issues and my front is only going to be lifted 2-3/4" when I finally get it done.
dam theft must be big down there......
thats like what 300lb + slaming around in the back
must have had to turn the radio up
