you should get one of those tailgates that holds a spare tire off the back to add some weight back there...i think that'd help calm the bucking down some.

Color matched or black . . . or hot pink and lime green flames with a dash of radiant citrus orange. That should do the trick. Post pics when you get it back, Eric, :) .
