Default Heavy Load!

I rented a dump trailer to go get some rock for my french drain in backyard, and I had quite a load that I did not expect until I got back on the scales. I had weighed my truck with just me in it near my house when I first bought it. It weighed 5500 lbs. Well when I pulled onto the scales at the gravel pit, it showed total weight of my truck, dump trailer and rock at 18,260 lbs. Whoaaa! Well I took my rock home and just did 45 mph, no problems at all. Acceleration was little slow, lol! All the roads home were only 45 anyway and easy to my house. But overall I was impressed, had very little squat and the truck performed fine.
