    Was wondering if anyone else having trouble with the new SPHE2000 in the size. I have mine on a 95 Chevy K2500 the problem is that the weight when loaded is not over the rear in the center but more to the end of the truck. It really sags the back-end any suggestions?

    I thought the same when I installed them .someone was sleeping at the wheel when they designed where the shoot should be located . Try a set of roadmasters .

    Make sure you have it ratcheted up against a secure strong frame in the bed .

    I pop wheelies and have a difficult time turning when fully loaded :laughing:

    Saltdawg will tell you you have to much spreader for your truck. They recommend at least a one ton for the SHPE2000. I used timbrens to deal with the weight of mine. Watch your rear seals.;)

    Are we talking about the SHPE2250 or the SHPE2000? The SHPE2250 is not an SHPE2000, but it has been mistaken for a "new" design of the SHPE2000. The SHPE2000 is still around (The 2250 is a whole different beast).

    The SHPE2250 has a two position chute, the position of it is selected by the installer. The SHPE2000 has a fairly short chute, so it's hard to believe that would be too long.

    Take a look at the instructions on page 3 and it shows how to select the chute height.

    Sorry if I confused the issue - somehow I had it in my head the original question was actually about a 2250.
