    We ran 2 Swenson 4.4 with liquid tanks last year. Fully loaded we were at about 23k. No issues at all. Truck performed flawlessly.

    so what you guys are saying is 3 yds + stainless bed +stainless sander is not pushing it? i know the truck will drive with the weight, but i dont want to put too much on the frame/springs....in the summer i can put 3-4 yd dry topsoil in the bed no problem, just wondering about the weight of the sander too...
