deaver f31 weight load limit

How much weight will i be able to put in the back of my ranger with deaver f31's. Some websites make it sound like u can barely put youre groceries back there. Can it carry a couple hundred pounds without sauatting down much.

So basically 2 full grown men will put it down. I never really found any site that gave a number in pounds.

Yep not much capacity at all that's not the point of devers. I have a custom set of deaver G50s with an extra leaf so I still have towing capacity and can support the weight of my spare, and tool box

Thats what im looking for. At least be able to carry my spare and toolbox. What exactly do they mean when they say rebound leafs. I see they put that next to the g50's on some websites?

You can pop wheelies if you want to! I've had several hundred pounds in there and sure it sags quite a bit, but its not so bad you can't haul anything.

EDIT: Should obviously mention that there's a bit more than a couple hundred pounds of dirt in this picture.

Well that dont look bad. My stock leafs would squat that much. I have 222,000 miles and just fixed a broken leaf. So mine are quite weak now but u just made up my mind. Im getting them.

Here's a bed full of firewood for comparison. If you want more flex get these. If you want to haul more then these are not the option to go with.

That probably weighs as much as a load of split dry firewood. I wonder how many pounds of dirt you do have on there.

I carry a 35" spare and a toolbox in the back of mine and it works great for that. Like the others said though the f31's are not good for hauling much weight. I've had about 5-600 pounds of steel in the back of mine and it was sitting on the bump stops.

ya I'm definitely still gonna get the deavers. zanes truck don't look bad at all with that load of wood on it. that's the most weight ill ever have on mine and it wouldn't be on long anyhow. I use my plow truck for getting wood back to my house anyhow. my driveway is just under a mile long and she is rough still. last spring because of the super deep frost the driveway got pretty bad in one spot and I got stuck with the plow truck in the driveway.lol. I think it still needs a lot more gravel.

got the deaver leaf springs. f 31's. I love them. they ride so awesome. I should have bought them a long time ago. I would recommend them to anyone. ive only had them in for a week now but they hold my spare and toolbox just fine without sagging at all. with the hanger flipped with stock shackle and the block on the rearend removed mine sits almost exactly the same height as it did with the stock leafs. my truck has 223,000 miles on it so I'm sure the stock leafs were settled down from new. the stock hanger does not hit the box without a body lift. someone said it would rub. it doesn't. I redrilled the hole in my stock shackle an inch below the original one to give myself an inch lift in the back. had to do some grinding so the leaf wouldn't rub when the shackle rotates. I think I'm still gonna look for a aftermarket shackle that's an inch shorter than the stock one. I think camburg makes one. not positive though. after I did the coilover conversion in the front it sat noticeably higher than the back until I raised it an inch. I need to take some pics and get them on here.
