1200 pounds of simulated batteries

This morning, we needed to find out how the truck will sit when the batteries are installed.  We had to do this to insure that the rear battery box would clear the rear differential.  What better way to test this out than to have 1200 pounds worth of students jump in the truck to simulate the weight.  We were able to determine the placement of the rear box and also were pleased with the stance of the truck.  Hellwig spring helper suspension bars have been installed and will drastically help out with the ride and handling of the truck after the addition of the batteries.
