I've put some weight in the back of this things and it rides like an absolute dream. Anyone have a link to a resource that would show me how to calc the spring rate to make it ride like it has 2000lbs in the bed all the time?

2,000 pounds? That's a bit over the payload, no?

I think that would be tough. My dad’s 2023 ICE F150 has a 6,600 lb GVWR, which is 2,000 lbs under mine. I imagine you could swap coil springs, but there would probably be running close to the bump stops because of the softer springs.

Might be worth a try if it’s that important to you, though.
