Maybe if you got some new prescription glasses you would have then realized this is a new GMC truck.

Well that explains it! It happen pretty fast and I was busy trying to take pictures. I guess if it was a Ford the rear bumper would have been dragging on the pavement.

Exactly. The springs on lift kits are soft. His tires probably aren't rated for that weight either.

Highly unlikely that those were lift springs in the back, for the same reason you mentioned. Truck probably level after the lift. IE 6” up front 4” rear lift blocks. So it makes the “sag” look worse than it is. And the tires are likely rated higher than OE tires.
Agree too much trailer for a brodozer, but probably not as bad as it looks. However it’s not as fun to just say “nice truck” and move along.

Too funny. I guarantee you my pin at 6k is much more. My measly 3500 DRW RAM sets perfectly level. Oh yea my RV weighs 24k.

I think that’s R2D2 carrying some shoulder bags, wearing a fishing hat, and holding a small red balloon. [emoticon]

Oh, and a ‘vette of some sort.

Hard to tell, but the pin seems to be on a hitch too far aft. Also, the TV has to be way overloaded for that FW.
