mine is a 97 with 6.5 bed tows great..just the ride needs to be stiffer...took it to a couple guy told me to go to class d tires said mine were to soft. Tires have 10k miles and can't afford to junk em....I am running 45 psi in mine and 60 on trailer. Someone else said add helper springs, someone said air bags and then someone said timbrens. Just don't have the jack to do all these experiments, if you know what I mean. Just rying to smooth out the ride.

The Timbrens came as standard equipment on our Z71. Forget the helper springs. You won't experience a ride as good as Air Bags.
