    Should I add Timbrens to my 99 Dodge 2500 to handle my 8" Fisher? Has anyone used them on their truck?

    I have used them on many trucks including a number of Dodges and recommend them highly for you application.

    There are worth every penny. I'm putting them on every truck I own now. I couldn't believe the difference it made to my 95 Dodge Ram 2500 when I put the plow on.Thumbs Up

    Do they make the ride even stiffer? or is it not noticable

    I didn't really notice any difference in the ride, but the ride is pretty damn stiff anyway, L

    Keep in mind that Timbrens are nothing more than larger bumpstops. They don't increase your load carrying capacity in an way.

    Timbren advertises that they protect against affects of overloading. Which I'm pretty sure most of us that use trucks for work do. I'm still going to add heavier springs and shocks over time. But I still wouldn't plow without Timbrens on.

    they increase the level load capacity but not the load capacity - no gvwr or gawr increases.

    Made a huge difference in mine for carrying the plow and drivability with it on- no more 15mph down my bumpy road to keep from bottoming the suspension out.
