Unfortunately I've found the people I used to trust for advice are dead wrong when it comes to my truck....

It's not like they have a ton of body roll or anything... don't do corners at 60 and you will be fine... don't be ****y and try to do stuff in your truck that you shouldn't be doing...

The body roll isn't as bad as you think it is.......I slide around corners everywhere, literally, and no accident yet. You need to know the limits of your truck, that's all.

You can also look at your door tag and use this chart. http://www.therangerstation.com/tech_library/Axles.html
