But that extra 2,000 pounds needs to be somewhat distributed.If you load 2,000 pounds of cargo at the rear of the bed, behind the rear axle, it will raise the front of the truck, making it difficult to steer because there's not enough down force on the front wheels to give them grip. In addition, if you load cargo that way, you'll run a high risk of damaging the rear springs, rear axle, bed and perhaps even the truck's frame.
