    Has anyone towed a heavy load with their lifted tacos? Mine is at stock height right now and tows pretty well for my needs but i'm wondering how it will be affected with a 3 inch lift or a 6 inch lift. i'm mainly concerned if the tongue weight will make the truck more nose high than it would be if it were stock. Also, does it still hold its gear (automatic) or does it hunt more trying to keep a steady speed on the highway with the stock gears in the rear end. If so, pics would help too, thanks

    Stock suspension leaves you with a rake (higher in the back than front) so ideally the weight makes your truck sit somewhat level. With suspension lifts, it levels your truck, so with weight on the trailer, it will sit nose high.
