    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
