IIRC, the rear end sags a lot with that much weight in the bed. I rarely (once a year at best) need to put THAT much weight in the back, but I don't want to be rubbing anything like that.
I ALWAYS use my truck as a truck, and never had an issue with rubbing. I scrubbed on the front once recently but I was driving through a drainage ditch.

That's a lot of cinder blocks! Maybe the sag I felt isn't as bad as it seems.

Thanks for the info and pics!

No problem, it definetly feels worse then it is. I had to go over a curb to get back on the road and had no problems.

Wow that looks like a lot of weight for a 3.0.
How was it?

Went down the road fine, just turned off overdrive and kept it under 55. Trailer brakes are a must at that point though. Without them that would be scary/stupid.

You can put a 31 on a stock rim.
