Default 2520 lbs in my bed and drove 15 miles

just the other day i hall ed a load of concrete mix. at that time i thought i hauled to much till i got home and saw my truck pulled it fine. so had to get more buy about double what i got the first time (20 bags at 60lbs each) so this time i bought 42 bags and loaded the ranger and said to my self i would stop when it looked like it was grossly over weighted. when i was done i had all 42 bags on the truck! now i would never do this again but after loading all those bags i was not going to unload some. so i walked around my truck and she was sagen bottom bad but i thought wtf lets see if she dont make it ill call my wife and have her bring my van ( E350 7.3 ). so off i go when i hit the first speed bump and had to change my shorts. the truck never came of the bump stops the hole ride home. and the stock tires with 60 psi looked like thay where flat but the truck did awesome! so please tell me how much have you had in your trucks? and did it surprise you how it pulled the load?
