    holy hell....my dad way underestimated the weight of these block. he said boy that things squatting pretty good, thats when i explained about the 3 leaf pack so thats probably why. nooooooo that wasnt why. i just went online to see if they had specs for these block. truck was way way way overloaded, no wonder the damn thing was all over the road over 40 mph. each block weighs 25 lbs, each cap weighed 13 lbs...60 block, 32 caps...eeeeeesh. thats flirting with a ton in the bed. if i would have known they weighed that much, i wouldve told him we were making 2 trips. the little 4 banger hauled it ok but damnnnn not gonna do that again

    I'd say that answers pretty well how durable the composite bed is... it's very strong.

    Amazing it did so well but be careful overloading. If you were to get in a wreck you (or whoever is driving) could be held criminally responsible... be safe :D

    I've had about 1000lbs of salt in the back of my prerunner...could deffinatly feel it back there. I drove a chevy 2500 diesel with 2000lbs in the bed a couldn't even feel the weight back there. Maybe a little more bouncy than usuall but that's it lol. I wish our trucks could do that...
