    • I recently leveled my truck, see this thread.  I ended up lowering the rear shackles to the 1" setting and added Firestone ride Right air bags and just manually fill them when towing.

      I read somewhere when searching leveling kits that it's recommended to replace shocks at 60-70k miles, but I have definitely gone longer in the past.

      Hi - looking for details on how to install new rear seats in a boat that was ordered without them. I have all the parts, but would love to see a template or details on how/where to put everything.  Dale

      Welcome to the crew. 

      You will want to fill the front ballast st least half way for skiing. 

      For surfing, you can go the full route above, or get into it a little at a time. Definately start with a suck gate, that is going to be most important to get going. Add ballast as necessary, we used human ballast at first, made learning tons of fun. Later we added extra bags in the rear lockers, and the walkway. 

      Then we bought a new boat rather than go through hard plumbing extra ballast bags. Now i am ordering lead bags for more ballast. Its a rabbit hole, but its a fun one to wander down.

      There are lots of great set-up threads on weighting a 23 for surfing. Do a little searching and reading, you will have a good idea of what to try. I wouldn't dive in to an overloaded boat until you get used to how it handles loaded.

      I think the tires are fine, albeit they are heavier than the stock, so that might be an issue amplifying worn shocks.

      Does anyone make shocks/weight bad (air shocks) anymore that are any good?  That might help with some heavier loads as well.
