ive had a 15 foot trailer of scrap metal and a bed full of cans and gutter pieces and my truck was maybe squatting 2.5 inches at most

ive only had it on the bump stop once..but i was seriously overweight to the point coming to a complete stop wasnt a good idea

So you own how many trucks and yet you decided to use the el camino to haul a pool table? Anyone else see something wrong here? Anyone?
