    Couple leafs never hurt, i wouldnt do more than 2 on each side, i did that as well but went with bags instead of going for helper springs.

    I did it in the last truck I had and it worked really well. I have a dump body in it in the summer and it will have a tailgate salter and fuel tank in the winter and its nearly dragging its bumper with an empty dump body in it. Think I'll go with the leafsprings.

    Thanks Mark, I agree they look like a stack of hockey pucks glued together!

    They are glorified bumper stops. They limit the travel and wear out quite quickly

    How big?
    Try Calhoun Superstructure or Brightspan if you are looking for a coverall type building.

    This is a shot in the dark but does anybody have an old Arctic snowplow controller kicking around?
