What year model is your truck? The 99-02's were rated to haul 800 lbs where the 03/04's were rated to haul either 1,300 or 1,400 lbs.

My 03 hauls heavy loads just fine, and as well as any other 1/2 ton as far as I can see. 1/2 tons have grown in size over the last few years so maybe some of these newer trucks might do better, but IDK.

800 lbs of tools,tool box and shell in mine since the day I bought it ten years ago. Not one problem. I also have a 3/5 drop. Two years after I bought it I did add a set of AIR RIDE helper bags. Helped alot. Now I can carry all I want and raise or lower the truck 3-4 inches.[smilie=3g
