Dad said he needed to borrow my truck, so I, without asking any questions, tossed him the keys. What does he come back with but a bed-load of bagged mulch and topsoil!! How about OVER 1,000lbs. of it! Damn truck didn't even break a sweat! Didn't look like it squatted much either! Being as it is a truck, it's nice to see it'll haul something other than ass! :D

good to see its being used as a truck. Now clean the bed or the dealer will void the warranty for putting something in there

I don't doubt it either. It has 5 beefy leafs and the second one is almost as long as the first. Add to that the slapper bar and there's no wonder it doesn't squat much.

Odd, I thought the idea behind the suspension was to soften it up so it would squat very well over a regular ram, help with launching and such. :)

I'm not an expert but I believe a soft suspension leads to axle wrap and wheel hop. You have to get your weight transfer with shock valving.

Why would Lightning people hate those pictures??? Nobody has ever said that the truck didn't have any payload capacity............ just that DCX didn't recommend towing with it.

We used to haul 1000+lbs of 1/4" thick steel on a regular basis with the L.

I expect any truck to earn its keep. It's nice to see that some others feel the same way.

On that point, we have gotten alot of crap from some in the Lightning community for all the heavy towing and hauling we have done. Some feel that sport trucks should be treated like sport cars, and should never carry more than 2 people and a playmate cooler. If I wanted something without truck capability............. I wouldn't have bought a truck.

Oh well.............. to each his own.

Well, not one, but he's an EX-Lightning owner now. ;) :D

To be honest, there are quite a few good guys over there, same as the Syclone/Typhoon boards.

Not only that, but look at the pictures. It cetainly doesn't look like all that weight is hurting the suspension either. :D
