Yeah. That truck took the load pretty good. A couple weeks back I had a 1000lbs of sheetrock and still wasn't level. Have no clue how much that wood weighed but it was on the bumpstops for sure. Only had to move 2 miles with it. Can't complain at all. Engine didn't even know and was still in eco mode most of the time. Looking at picking up a set of Airlifts within the next few weeks. Looks like all the people who have them love them and I can't complain when i can get them for just under 70$

Sounds like the truck is working really hard. Did you give any thought to installing air bags to help support the heavy loads? That is if you are going to be carrying loads like that more fequently.

Truck actually doesn't work to hard...sits most of the week, just doesn't make sense to drive it everyday when I driver 100 miles a day. But every once in a while it gets a nice easy trip to work...Funny you mentioned buying the bags because I bought the Airlift 1000 today. I see a lot of people complain about the sag which I don't feel is that bad on my truck. I had 1000lbs of sheetrock and it wasn't level yet and I think thats decent since it was 12foot sheetrock meening the weight was centered behind the rear wheels. I don't plan on doing firewood all the time but when I can get it for free it just makes sense. I really wanted the 3/4 or 1 ton but just getting out of school couldn't afford the 1 ton with diesel and 3/4 ton payload isn't that much higher so decided on the half ton for price. worst is i take an extra trip still saved over 10k from getting 3/4. Will hopefully get to install the bags next weekend. Should be able to get more firewood after that and be able to show off pics with the bags. I'm planning on running separate lines I feel that just makes more sense. By any chance do you have the bags? Got them for 25 with coupons I had so that the reason for Airlift apposed to other brands.

Outdoorsman2012 - I understand 100%. The bags will help with the wheel hop when you jump on it and smooth out the ride sum. 100 miles to work and back! WOW!!! That's a lot of driving.

Outdoorsman i installed the air bags sat...i had to do seperate air lines since they forgot to include the tee. Was very easy i took off my rear wheel wells to make gettin to the top of the bags easier for my hands. So far i ride around with 5psi and dont even notice it being stiffer. Get to test em out sat when i tow a car for my pop two hours away. Ill let u know how they perform.

I see you live in New York, and from this post boy I more than understand.

I've been to Binghamton, Vestal (which is right next to Binghamton), Watertown, and Henrietta, NY. Also, I have cousins who live in Waverly and Ithica. And yest you need a cell phone, satellite, and you forgot a generator.
