Morning all,
I have the stock new 2018 trd sport, I tow a few trailers w boats only a few times per year, but they def lower the back a bit with the tongue wait.
The lightest is an ATV trailer, then about 4k trailer/boat, about 6k boat/trailer but only a few miles from dock to ramp, going very carefully on decent road.
I don't want to kill my shocks/springs or kill their compression ability? if I have that right.
Is there a suggestion for a leaf assist, new bump stop that's higher, or it will be fine stop worrying as its not enough to worry about.
and no, I do zero off-roading..
Thanks for everyones opinion.

Weight distribution hitch will help with the rear sag when towing, that would be the best option. You could use an add-on airbag load assist kit to keep the truck level, but that won't really help with distributing the load properly.

If you have a Harbor Freight near you they have one that works pretty well (y)
