I guess I should say first that I'm an old guy. Recently gave up big truck and 31 foot trailer so I have a good understanding of capacities.

I picked up mulch yesterday and the sag was incredible so I reviewed the documented numbers.
Truck 4140
Gvwr 5500
Gas 21.1 gallons / ~126 gals a tank

5500-4140 is 1410.
1410-126 is 1284.

Toyota documented numbers don't make any sense at all.
If the max weight (gvwr) can not exceed 5500 pounds then the payload can only be just under 1100 pounds. Has to be Gvwr - truck curb weight - gas.

That leaves 1284. Must add in driver, passengers and EVERYTHING else on the truck.

Payload can only be 1084 with a 200 pound driver.

I think I'm going to take a ride up to the cat scale and get the real numbers.


But there still should be that kind of sag with a bucket of mulch in the bed.

Welcome to the light duty truck world.

Soft rear leaf springs = nice ride, and lots o sag when used as a truck. It seems that the vast majority of consumers want a soft, quite, plush ride.

I would recommend a set of helper springs, or add a leafs.
