    I have 2010 DBLCAB TRD OFFR with suspension TSB. I tow a popup camper (2100#) with gear in bed coolers, chairs, etc.. probably around 250 to 500 pounds max. My problem is the rear of the truck bottoms out and when it is sitting there the rear is dipping way more than it should. Any recommendations on what I can do. Thanks.

    firestone airbags, or some OME Dakar leaf springs would probably be a good start...

    Before you go that route, have you had the suspension TSB done on your truck? It sounds like you need it. Take it back to the dealership and explain to them the problem you're having. There's a TSB out to upgrade the suspension for towing/hauling. If that doesn't solve your problem, then look into something like airbags, AAL's or a replacement leaf pack.

    Hey, the Bruins got their rear ends handed to them so there's a lot of drinking going on in Boston. Missed that part... Go for air bags if you want to maintain your stock ride height.
