They are redoing my road and I live in the mountains. It's down to a single lane with a concrete barrier on one side and a mountainside on the other and when I hit a bump in that road today I almost flipped off the side of the mountain because the road is so narrow now. Scary shit!

just be careful....us pick up drivers have to be aware of how trucks handle
usually trucks land or shake fine due to stiff suspension in the back

i know cuz i drive on bridges going 75 and it bounces kinda bad sometimes

Oh yea, with the tires i have now, i know my truck loves to bounce around... I was going to work the other day and not even turning, finish my shift into 2nd and start getting back on the gas, i could feel my back end breaking loose.
I cant wait for it to snow again.

Yeah it sux, but if they would quit "fixing" the roads around here when they were ok to begin with I wouldn't even have this problem at all I live in a tourist town so they think they always have to build new roads instead of repaving the ones we already have, and then the roads are fucked up for months at a time while they build

you could do a locker swap with your diff, it would help a little bit, but there is some work to be done, you just need to know how to do it, but many hjave done it

you should try those shocks that dont push up. They help alot with that. My dads 2wd did that alot, I swapped him shocks (my ranchos for his brand new gabriels) and that helped a ton. Then, we just swapped his 7.5" for an 8.8" and he has said the extra weight of the rear end "feels" like it grabs the road better. Prolly since its heavier.

Except, ive heard that lockers aint the best for daily driving. That and i know from my friends 76 cougar, in which he swapped in a detroit-locker, was not the most comfortable car around turns afterwards.

perhaps beefier tires would add a little more weight to the rear, but if its enough to make a difference i have no idea
