Whats the most you have put in the back of your titan? How did it handle it? Show some pics of it if you have them. If you dont, then dont worry about it.

I dont think anyone has been crazier than me in this field. 2040# in the bed and cruised at 70 down the freeway smoother than silk! (*)














(*) Had airbags on it. (cheater)

That's why I'm going to put airbags on my Titan. (But I don't think I'll ever put a full ton in the bed)

I've hauled more than 1 ton of hay a number of times in my 05 KC BT. My heaviest was 3120lb, and that was from a certified scales.

I have the firestone airbags and they are great. The only bad part is you can keep putting stuff back there and the truck doesn't sag, so you are never really sure how much weight is in there. I had a bed FULL of 4X4's, and 5/16 fence boards before the bags and the suspension was bottomed out, that is when I decided to get the airbags. Don't have a clue how much it weighed, but it was alot.

2400 pound Payload

OK, I was a little crazier.... 2400 pounds (forty-eight 50 pound bags of sand). I just had one stretch of 65 mph road over the 20 or so miles home. I don't have air-bags (other than my soon to be ex-wife). It drove too nice... it was not alarming that you were in fact over loaded.

Basically yes, but the airbags are adustable. They can also handle more weight, I think combined weight of both bags is over 5000 lbs. Not that you should but that much in the bed. The biggest advantage to the bags is that even fully loaded you can level the truck so that you are not blinding everyone on the highway with you headlights.

yeah I have been looking into either airbags or helper springs for the near future but the airbags are more expensive and require an air compressor to adjust.

I have the onboard air compressor and I also have the manual ports inside my wheel well incase the onboard breaks. I bought the one that lets you air up each side independently.

yeah I saw that one it is really nice but a bit pricy for me to justify at this time.

I put almost 2 pallets of red cement brick in the back. I forgot the exact amount of bricks but I believe it was way over 2500 pounds. Might have been as much as 3000.

Anyway the truck was fully on the bump stops, It steered like total ****. I was afraid to go over 45 because the steering had virtually no return to center. It felt like one small jerk on the steering wheel would cause an uncorrectable swerve.

Obviously WAY over weight. I only had to go a few miles and just drove nice and easy 5 under the speed limit (40 mph). Probably the 1st time in my life.

I didnt buy the compressor at all with mine. I just used a 12 volt plug in compressor to are each one up individually.



Here is waht the truck looked like with 2040# on it not aired up and then aired up. Oh yea I forgot I had about 600 lbs of tools in the tool box.
