This one I put 9,000# of pea gravel on it once. Would i do it again? ABSOLUTELY NOT! It was stupid and unsafe! The springs were mashed, overload springs were definately put to use, and the braking action was very dimished. But, I'd never hauled more than 2500# on it before that, and 2500# sure doesn't feel like anything is back there!
w/4.5 ton of pea gravel on back and me and a helper in the cab, truck weighed over 15,000#. I'm thinking around 15,600 or something...
