    I have a 2017 db cab long bed off-road. For 3-4 months a year I have the bed and a hitch cargo carrier loaded with gear . Well the hitch carrier bottoms out on my steep driveway where the 2009 sport dblc lb I had before did not with the same load. I don’t want to put in a full lift or airbags. Any recommendations on stiffening the rear suspension?

    I like my Roadmaster. No effect on ride. No squat with the mower on back. Raised the rear about .75 inches.

    Sounds like a solution. What roadmaster product do you recommend?

    Timbren system. I towed 6.5k lb food trailer with 800lbs at the tongue. It squated about 1/4” at that was it. 800lbs on the tongue without the tibren had the headlights pointed up into the sky.
