    That is just way out of line. They had better do something for you.

    Thats because 1 cubic yard of pea gravel weigh's approximately 3000 lbs. Dont take a 1/2 ton truck to do the job of a 1ton (F250 or the like) next time.

    and you're sure they put in the 4-leaf pack, right? I know several of us got a new 3-leaf that was incorrect.

    Damn right I'd take it over with the load in it. In fact, I'd even see if you could get weighed before and after (truck stop nearby?) and PROVE to the dealer that you're within weight specs.

    Keep us updated.

    Are you sure they put the 4 pack in and not just another 3 pack. If they
    didn't change your shocks they might not have put the correct springs in.
    They might not have ordered the correct parts.

    Yea, a yard of gravel is way more than 1000 lbs.

    Got it man, that's what I get for surfing the web while driving. No need to yell.

    I retract my previous statement and under the circumstances, the truck performed superbly.

    I think you have way more than 1000 lbs in that load. I think 3000 lbs is closer to the actual weight of a yard of pea gravel.

    Makes me love my air bags that much more. Still would have been overloaded on everything else but I wouldn't have the "Fat Girl" sag.....

    Hate to say it, but you just wore out those leafsprings.

    Overload'em and you shorten the life - I learned the hard way from previous rides.

    I actually did haul a yard of top soil about 3 weeks ago and while it wasn't near the sag that I had today it wasn't nearly what you're showing there. I didn't check to see if it had hit the bump stops with the top soil, but I know the guy loading it stopped after one scoop and made sure I wanted to continue because it almost instantly dropped.
