    Ahhh that would make sense. I ended up pulling it from the car. Since it doesn't really have a label or anything like the tracker thing did. I'll have to double check. My mom has the same nissan I'll look under the dash next time I see her.

    Would adding some near the tailgate and near the cab work better? Or just near the tailgate?

    Weight close to the tailgate would produce more downward force at the tires on the ground than the same weight over the axle or near the cab. Leverage. Think of it like this: Pick up a 10 lb weight directly with your hands close to your body. Feels like 10 lbs (like 10lbs directly over the axle). Now put that 10 lbs on the end of a 6ft long 2x4 and try to lift if from the other end of the 2x4. Feels like more than 10lbs right? (like 10lbs near the tailgate).

    Painted and installed my 4x Innovations rear bumper. Very happy with the way it turned out. I aim more towards the understated side of aesthetics.

    Did you paint or Powdercoat it yourself or did they do it for you?

    Made a forest loop to test for APRS coverage in the area and found a little damp dirt, just barely enough to mark the truck.

    I removed the rear seats and rear console from my access cab and built a platform in its place. Photos coming

    Installed some Timbren active off-road bump stops.
    As you can see the drivers side stock bump stop broke off.
    The back end of the truck is looking nasty with the fluid film full of road grime.

    Looking forward to smooth hits instead of the backbreaking bottom outs!

    I painted it used self etching primer and rustoleum hammered black. Made sure to prep it thoroughly. Love the result. That hammered finish is my new go to for DIY painting. Word of caution though, it is a little more gray that straight black.

    You don’t want weight at the tailgate. Ideally you want it just forward the rear axle. The further back you go you’ll be taking pressure off the front axle and will cause issues with steering.

    Its less about amplifying the weight in the bags but making sure you don't over amplify the weight behind the axle. Too much weight behind the axles lifts the weight on the front of the vehicle causing the front tires to push when turning and going over bumps instead of steering. Proper or heavier amount of weight over the axle is always safer from a stability standpoint than overly heavy weights behind the axle. Not everyone is a mathematician or physicist so its always recommended to people to just throw the weight over the axle. If you are one of the select few who can calculate max weight + down force at the weights position behind the axle as to not lift weight from the front you are a smarter man than I. Since I cant I throw weight over the axle.

    well to each there own, no offence but maybe a little more schooling in physics iis needed, putting 500#s near the tailgate would make that front end a little squirrely on ice, distributing the weight over the bed is the way to go. you certainly want weight over your drives, not unlike loading a trailer. However what ever works for ya (maybe your post was for humor)

    Yes,
    Loading past the axle would create a lever that pivots at the axle.
    Loading on or before the axle would weight the axle.

    Finished my de-badging over the weekend. No more Tacoma badges on the front doors, and I took the pinstripes off, too. All that's left is "Toyota Tacoma" on the driver side of the tailgate.
