2300 pounds? put a steel plate in the bed of the truck and weld it in, then add some d rings followed with some good ramps, just carry that baby around piggy back.

I say my f350 rides and drives a little better with 2000 lbs in the bed, really don't notice it even being there at all, if I had a heavy flatbed Id try my 743 on for size, I bet the state cops would have a wet dream over that one.
