I believe the bed will be a bit heavy, but not too much so. Im not weighing metal or anything, but heres a list. In the front of the bed it will be tank shields, gas tank, roll bar, and toolboxes. In the rear it will be custom bumber, boxed rear section, winch plate, and winch.
I plan on a winch and bumper for the front, but not near as heavy as the rear one, which is 4x8 1/4" thick steel. I'm trimming the front fenders, but that wont help much. The 14FF is heavy in itself.
I understand about there being no weight on the axle, the tires don't have enough pressure to grip well and the rear can bounce a bit too.
Hmmm, anyone have any thoughts?
