    Like the title says. Thinking of flipping stock overload to engage earlier.

    I've seen someone who did it with a first gen. I wouldn't try it though. The leaf springs are already pretty flat so you'd effectively put the overload as part of the active leaf pack. The truck would ride like a dump truck.
