1,200 lbs in the bed?

Oh yeah...

I picked up 10 storage racks from costco at 120lbs each box. Just thought I'd share some recent pics of the little truck that could. For many of you old timers.....yes my truck is stock again, its very sad, i know.

(sorry for the ****ty cell phone pics)

Inventory for his company. We are only using 5-6 of the racks, but needed the extra shelves and supports to have more shelves on the racks we are using. The company is www.westcoastjewelry.com, so there are thousands of rings that will be on each rack.

My truck didnt really notice the extra weight, or maybe its because I'm used to much heavier loads. With 4.56 and 31's and chevy 1500 springs, the truck didnt mind much.

Ah, the awesomeness of owning a truck. Hauling crap.

I had about 1500 pounds in my Ranger once in just cinder blocks. THAT sucked.

I have had a literal ton of stuff in the Dodge, and it wasn't too bad. Gotta love full size!

Eventually.... And I was beating the crap out of the truck when it was lifted, needed some new 33's and just thought it would be a better idea to keep it stock
