How can l increase payload so l can buy a ultralite slide in truck camper? I would like to add 600lbs. Go from 1900lb to 2500lb. Anybody try putting a truck camper in a 5'8" box? And if so what size, brand etc.
the least expensive soloution without sacrificing ride may be airshocks.
Basically you want your 1/2 ton truck to haul like a 3/4 ton but with only a 5' 8" box, I won't say it can't be done cause I've seen some stuff done to trucks, but to still have a safe rig when your done will take some bucks, change springs and rear end to full float style, front axle to a higher rating and the springs, you may have to reinforce the frame. Might just be easier to purchase a 3/4 ton with a 8' box.
Thanks for the info!
don't forget to check the load rating on your tires.
