Payload with Body Lift

Does anyone know or have a guess as to how much weight you can hold in your bed even with the crush blocks welded in? I did the whole redneck hot tub thing last summer but with the body lift now I'm a little sketched out to try it. Is there anything i can do to increase my payload?

I dont think it affected mine any. I still haul the bed full of wood rounded to the top of the cab. the bodylift basicallly just puts a taller spacer under the bed i think if you have the blocks under it then it still touches the same amount as it did stock.

run wooden beams across the frame under the bed, may have to slightly loosen the bed bolts to squeeze a piece of lumber in there, but make it a 1/8th inch bigger than the bl so it compresses. I know that helps the payload..but you said you welded them sooo idk
