    Mine were kind of like that, I actually had the aal in the garage. After a trip bringing some grass rolls, and unloading it the taco stayed down. So I decided to go to a new set.
    The problem with a aal with them like that is 1. you wont get that much lift 2. they can literally break

    haha you guys and your logic ... sounds like that's what I'll have to do then ... putting $12-1500 into a truck I paid less than that for just seems crazy lol then you add in the wheels I bought ($500) and the tires (about $800) and I am starting to feel like a lunatic ha!
