So I needed to a load of gravel and decided what the Hell, I might as well see what the bottom of the line, grossly under-powered beater can handle. Surprisingly enough it didn't do too bad. Honestly it felt like I overloaded the tires more than the truck itself. It pulled some pretty good sized hills without much of a problem. Anyway, a couple pics for your amusement.

That's more like it....2100 lbs on a Dakota.
You guys don't give the little 4 bangers enough credit. In its younger days, my S10 with Iron Duke hauled 2600 lbs of gravel on more than one occasion. Slow and weavy but it got the job done.
