Loaded a half yard of wet top soil. I think the key is to have the guy at the supply yard dump the soil in slowly. The truck handled fine. The nose pointed up a bit but no problems with power. I put a cheap tarp in the bed first, shoveled out most of it and pulled the remainer out by pulling the tarp. It worked great and I did not even have to hose out the bed. The tarp is now rolled up and stored beside my spare tire.
