    Loaded up my 08 TRD sport the other day.

    Had about 1000lbs of old High Voltage cable to bring back to our lock up at work
    Was pretty loaded down, but didn't bottom out till I went over a small speed bump

    that sag doesn't look too bad for 1/2 ton of weight in a shortbox.

    I had about 1500 lbs of old roofing in my LB coupke months ago. Truck was sagging alot but didnt bottom out until i hit bumps. The springs had a negative arch too. The truck handled it really well i would say.

    I love this, I hate people that treat their truck like a Honda Ridgeline. Load it up, work it, get it dirty! Just because you treat it like a tool doesn't mean it's going to fall apart.

    I did 1100 lbs of sod a few weeks back...on a pallet...in a short box...behind the wheel wells and half on the tailgate...without TSB. Not a good idea but I only drove a mile on side streets. Not sure how I didn't pop a wheelie.
