    Actually in defense of the Strada, mukhang hindi naman talaga siya meant to carry heavy stuff. Yung mismong agent na ang nagsabi na more on the recreational side siya.

    Kaya nga it really depends on the customers needs.
    Yan din sabi ng Agent ko. Kaya siguro yong TV commercial sa abroad humakot sila ng sand dinala sa bundok at gumawa ng beach volleyball court.
    Di lang panghakot pangpamilya pa.

    Oo nga, below 1 ton silang lahat. Naloko tayo!
    Mas malaki pa pala payload capacity ng MB100 kesa sa mga pick up. 1,700kg ayon sa firewall plate.

    the 2wd frontier is not that hard sa rear, its the shocks, instead of 1 bounce per lubak it is 3 bounces because of the fluid rear shocks it cannot dampen the movement. you try to observe when following these vehicles.
    so most likely if I change to SOA with a different leaf set the ride can be compromised? What if I get the OME ones?

    note- if you change to SPOA you will need at least minimum 4" of lift for the front. And why do you want to change the rear suspension configuration? it has the best ride among pick-ups in its generation. I think you need better shocks to make it less bouncy, too soft suspension and crappy original shocks results in unbalanced damping.

    well, I'm actually opting for a suspension lift. I'm asking for options. Besides, one leaf from my set already broke...again...thanks for the info sir. For sure, if I'm going to change the leaf set, definitely I'd be changing the shocks. Balak ko sana parang setup ni Sir Woodfire dati. Bilsteins up front then OME at the back...but then it would take some more time, since i'd be getting the suspension lift up front... :D

    another I notice the fuego series ride softer than the dmax...the fuego have very long lift springs (length wise)....may be this is also a factor to have softer ride.

    I have loaded my frontier before the 750kg, lundo na ang likod. Naka tingala na ang harap...mahirap idrive ng ganun (mahina grip the front tires) ... nagiging malikot.

    Sa dmax nakapagload nako ng 600kg without signs na observed sa frontier... I don't think that the 150kg difference would affect it...pero my dmax was a 2004...baka ito yung mataas ang payload capacity. And I haven't had the time to check the number of lift springs on the 3 different dmax that the office have.
