I know I'm bringing up an old thread, but it is a fun one. Last week I made another salvage run with batteries and two large motors. I pushed/stacked the batteries as far forward as possible and kept loading. Filled the bed. I ended up having 2526 pounds in the back. Most of the weight was in the front, so it didn't squat down so much. But driving was another thing. I was stable at 55mph, but approach 60mph and the back end would sway like a whipping trailer.

I once put 5700 lbs of bricks in the back (known weight since I weighed in at a weigh station when I dumped)

28 skids in my 89 long bed ranger. Not sure of weight, and would've added more, but couldn't reach that high. Did 6 trips of 2 miles like that. Bought 'm for 50 cents ea and sold them for $3 ea! :)
