Yesterday I helped the local newspaper deliver the thanksgiving paper which has 50 million sale flyers in it and they were in bundles of 10, each paper weighed 2.25 lbs, so each bundle weighed 22.5lbs. I had 100 bundles in my truck, only a few of which were in the back seat. I'll tell you right now the truck handled this load admirably, to say the least. It didn't squat really all that much, and the handling was not bad at all. I put 'er in tow/haul and off I went. I was very impressed. I really believe this same load would have severely taxed my 98 Dakota to the hilt. This one didn't even struggle.
