    my chevy would handle that no problem. Fords have always had soft rear ends.

    You know seeing that going down the road, really does piss me off. Nothing against you but it's dangerous and just doesn't make sense to do, Beef up the back end, extra trip. etc... I see it too often around here, when we take the time/expense to setup equipment right to handle the loads they need to, everything thats required by the laws here for safety and such. Yet I had to drive next to someone doing the samething... It annoyed the hell out of me, and seeing this gave me a place to vent... Don't mean to be an ass or anything to you..

    it shouldn't squat that much -it should look more like this. I know the trailer is empty, but the truck doesn't squat much at all -(air springs make a big difference!!)wesport

    F-250s sit all the time no matter if theres a load or not, the ass end has to drop 5 inches before you hit the overload and they come level from the factory.

    thats funny b/c when i went to the dealerships looking for a new truck, you can press on the back bumper of a chevy and make it bounce, the fords would barely budge! no hating, we own both chevy's and fords...

    I've used and loaded all of the big 3 and wasn't overly impressed with one over another.

    Whats so heavy on the front end of that trailer ?
    Not trying to be a jerk but I think you need to work on your trailer loader its dangerous to go down the road with that little weight on the steer tires

    thats why each of our trucks has firestone 5K air bags, ford or chevy.

    Dang I think you order truck without hd leaf spring. Until it trailer that are incorrect balance weight.

    My 01 F250 2wd don't look like that when I load 4K lb it just stop when touch overload leaf spring.
