Looking to buy
Quick question for the Roxor brain trust. I have a 2018 that i recently purchased used. I am utilizing this as a hunting vehicle in South and Central (hill country) Tx. I added a high rack to the back and put on some new bilstein shocks to the front and back as well as a rough country leveling kit in the front. After giving it a good run through in the hill country yesterday, i noticed that the back end kept bottoming out on the shocks with a loud "thud" on bigger bumps (I was not hitting rocks). The high rack only weighs maybe 100-150lbs. Any thoughts or ideas on how to beef up the suspension on the back end? I am open to any and all suggestions, thank you in advance for your help.

Add a leaf is one. The more stiff u go the less flex u get. Also buy a pair of Timbrens to use that doesn't affect your ride until u start loading it up

The springs are sagged and weakened. The add a leaf is a poor choice in this case. Do the 2” eBay lift and climax shackles or you can spend some money for custom stock height or 1” over stock by Eaton Detroit spring. Product Lookup by vehicle They have custom spring rates too. But dang they’re pricey. I went the eBay route and they work great. LoadEd up several hogs and little to no squat. If you can deal with the added height I think it’s the best value that will solve your problem. I too was riding on the bump stops traveling in pastures in first gear when I had hogs on the rack. The eBay springs fixed that. It’s McVeigh truck springs that sells them. About 400 shipped I think.

no squat on that rack and that’s a lot of weight hanging off the back end. Think leverage here.

That ain't right. You guys from Texas get to be heroes for thinning the hog population with all the pork you want. While us hard working folks in California get to pay higher pork prices so a pig can have dancing room before it gets butchered.
