I was helping a friend move a weekend ago and it's the first time i've ever hauled anythign with my 4/6. He didn't have a bunch of stuff but he did have a weight bench and some weights about 350lbs worth. anyway i loaded those up and we drove back his new apt. That load didn't bring the back down but a couple inches. I mean over little bumps i could feel the axle hitting the bumpstop (or the tires hitting the fenderwell) but nothing major. After unloading it looks like the tires sidewalls may have rubbed a little on the fenderlip. Does that make my tires more vulnerable to a blowout? How bad is it?

It probally didn't hurt it any, you may want to trim yur fender lips if ya ever haul again though. If the tire looks bad from the rubbing then just have a shop flip the tires around on the wheels.

haha this is the reason i will never do a static drop of more than 4 in the rear...i still use my truck as a truck too much.
all it needs is a little trim, hell I put easly 500lbs of sand bags in my truck with a 4-6 and it was fine, on the bumpstops but fine. I filled my bed of my old bagged one with no probs and a step thru the bed.

Yeah im running 255/70's right now and when i get 20's i want to run 275/45's or some other 30" tire for the ride, plus it fills the well up a little better IMO. I plan on getting Intro twisted vistas.

With Intros you won't need to trim anything and you can run big tires no problem. The wonders of backspacing.
