fail if the 'van' is anything like the 'truck', they have weight sensors, had to make two trips with drywall, if you're over weight the truck wont even start.

I had 2500 pounds of loam in the bed. Home was only 4 miles so it did OK but any bump would max out the suspension unless I drove judiciously.

Well, with my $450 leaf spring upgrade 1000lbs dropped my truck about an inch. I agree that if you drive slow and your not traveling a long ways you can do it in three trips

Ended up getting 41 bags (80 lbs each). Did 3 trips total. The first 2 were 12 bags each. The truck almost seemed unaffected by it, so when I ended up needing a few bags less than I thought I decided to do the final 17 in one load. I only live 5-7 minutes from the place, so… It didn’t drive much different . A little slow on the brakes and I was more careful on the cornering, but all in all it handled it really well. But, with 17 in there, it was visibly weighed down in the back. I wouldn’t do it for a far trip.

Thanks everyone!

been a couple years on this one. yeah, the truck can handle the weight, but its all about liabilities. If you crash and are overweight, your insurer is gonna hang you out to dry.

Roll across a scale, see what your truck weighs. stay under your data plate and you'll stay legal. Overload and its on you. Yeah, I've rolled the dice a few times with my truck. sometimes, you gotta do it.

1 Ton of BioBricks too much???

I did some searching on the forum before going to pick up 1 ton of bio bricks for our wood stove to know whether or not I might be overloading it and found most people said in several threads that they easy did 2k lbs and some even slightly more, 2.5k lbs. Not knowing what their particular setup was (stock suspension or AAL's or blocks or custom leaf packs) I took it to mean as a stocker or even modified I would be fine as I assumed there must be a mix of those examples in all those threads.

I'm setup with 3" lift with Radflo's up front and a custom pack from Alcan in the rear (built for addition 100 lbs, although I usually don't ride with anything extra). Also I have a good amount of rake to my setup. Went to pick up the bricks and when the guy set the pallet in the bed it squatted what looked to be really low, I must have been really close to the bump stops, although I didn't actually check. I did see that my leaf pack was inverted and that scared me so I had them remove it and I split the load by hand and made two trips. My wife was up front and said it felt bad from her perspective, I guess she started to point up, lol.

So my question is, was I over reacting? I heard in my experience researching leaf packs that they should never be inverted for long periods. I know articulating off road may invert them when you stuff a wheel, but again that is not long term, ie driving home 30 miles as I was.

Or is it because I have the custom leaf pack from Alcan that I lost some payload capacity?... perhaps because Alcan mfg's the spring to have more flex thus loosing some payload compared to stock or those with AALs or blocks or some combination?

Thanks in advance for your input!
