I have to call BS to some of the comments

2006 GMC 2500 HD -
Marathon Truck Boss deck - 350 lbs
with 2 sleds with gas - 1000lbs
- additional fuel under deck - 150 lbs

you are close to 1500lbs

we run ait bags on both 2500 hd because they do sag and the air bags are faster to level the truck head light/driving/fog lights that trying to readjust the lights to the load..

BUT put 2 quads and connect to a holiday trailer and the back axles are over weight but air bags make it look/ ride at the same hight as empty

after a couple of trips it is easy to figure out what air bag pressure you need to ride level and comfortable

one truck has the built in compressor to adjust on the go -- thats nice - thats my next purchase a compressor

Bags are cheap and very easy to install yourself -- once you use them you would not go back.
2 guys with gear 400lbs

I can't find the pic of my truck with two sleds. But two quads are heavier
But it doesn't sag Sits level but the lights will be up for sure
Depends if the springs are sagged out or not.

No air bags or springs, just cognito leveling kit

1 set of bags on transferred up on the third truck now = approx 1000000kms still work fine no built in compressor just use 12v adapter in trailer plug and $9 crappy tire pump as for air lines made sure they were good to start with and ran them inside 3/8 rubber airline and never had an issue the push in style connectors and a little windex ensure there are no bubbles and never touched till I pulled em out and transferred them to next truck

LOL air bags are the best way to go. Did u notice the 3000 lbs was Centre way forward of the rear axle in your long box.The big deal here is if it is a long or short box. I run a 3/4 ton dodge long box which puts the Centre of mass of the two sleds and deck way forward and sag is minimal. On my buddies short box 3/4 ton dodge same year same load he has his headlights pointed to the tree tops. Pure physics boys!

Timbren suspension bumpstops help and they are cheaper as more reliable than air bags.

More reliable than air bags ? I had airbags and a deck on my '07 Ram 3500 SRW and never had any issues with them for the 195,000 km. that I owned the truck. If they're installed correctly, air bags are normally trouble free. The benefit is, when you're not hauling a load, drop the air bag pressure down to 5 psi and you don't affect ride quality.


Done fishing. Let's go sledding !!

Or maybe geometry. Buy yeah, noticed that too.

My short box duramax sagged quite a bit. I added load levelers to compensate. Wasn't a new truck so the springs were likely tired.

Квартиры в ип&

Население нашей планеты неуклонно растет с каждым годом, вот поэтому проблема жилья все так же остра для всех ее жителей, в том числе и для жителей небольшого русского городишки Кстово. Здесь, как и в некоторых других городах РФ, создание нового жилья часто притормаживает из-за минимального финансирования. В такой ситуации отличным вариантом становится долевое участие в создании различных объектов недвижимости. Строительный холдинг «Поиск-К» сегодня является единственной организацией в небольшом городке Кстов, которая принимает прямое участие в проблеме возведения жилых зданий. Уже сегодня холдинг «Поиск-К» состоит в долевом участии активно строящегося дома, квартиры в котором известны своей удобной и современной планировкой, а также индивидуальным отоплением. Мы хорошо понимаем, что почти все наши соотечественники не располагают суммой денег, которая достаточна для покупки недвижимости, поэтому все без исключения могут оформить ипотечный кредит на новую квартиру.
