    The most I’ve had on mine was 1050 Drove from Rochester NY to North Carolina with a 2Jz motor and two transmissions and related parts.

    Payload was all in the bed. My X is lowered DJM 3/4 with frame notch. Stock wheels with 245/40 18 Tire’s. I have Firestone air springs. I am also supercharged and have a BBK to handle extra loads. I haul 800 pounds with no problems heavier I have to be careful or I bottom out.
    I had a 06 that was stock I had 600 on it and it handled it. Pulled a small trailer with my riding lawn mower without issues.
    I would recommend the clutch accumulator delete.

    Ok-thanks. Do the Firestone air/springs replace the rear shocks?

    No, I have QA1 shocks. but I removed the bump stops for more travel and they are not needed with the air spring. I change air pressure and shock settings depending on what I’m using the truck for.

    Ok-I got it. They are helper springs. I have always wondered if it would be possible to use the Ridetech Shock-wave shocks for direct shock replacements for the rear. To give adjustable ride height.

    They look kinda fat. QA1s are pretty close to hitting leaf springs as it is.
