what kind of wine in 1 liter bottles? good stuff is usually in 750's?


Good stuff also comes in magnums. The 1L bottle is a trademark of Gruner from Austria that’s okay quality. It’s all about making it easy and thirst quenching. This was a white blend in liter bottles from an organic winemaker in California that I delivered to an account. Definitely a thirst quenching bottle of wine. And sealed in crown cap too!

Well, in case anyone was wondering, this is what a ‘17 Crewmax with an OME/Dakar lift looks like with 756 1-liter bottles of wine in the bed.

Side question are those Fallken AT tires and size?

YIKES! Just the liquid alone is over 1500 lbs..... and that's a lot of glass.


We figured it was around 2600 lbs. The truck drove just fine but I didn’t expect that much sag in the suspension.
Oh and I measured before and after: 3.5” of compression!

Yep, the AT3/W in 275/65/20. Pretty happy with them except they don’t do nearly as well in the rain as my Toyo A/T did.

Here’s the truck dry for reference, should have put this up originally. The rear shot is actually the day my ARB lift was re-installed after ditching the Toytec AAL.

You didn't expect that much sag being over 1,000 pounds overloaded?

If your real question is if I knew it was overloaded, then yes, I did. Still, I didn’t expect it to compress as much as it did but I was not sure what to expect as I have never loaded near that much into the truck before.
Next week I have SuperSprings going on the Dakar leaf pack to help when I tow a big 20’ cargo trailer, but even the tongue weight loaded shouldn’t come close to what I had in there yesterday with the wine. I’ll be interested to see how the SSprings do overall.

Nice! What’s your suspension setup? I kind of wish I could do it all over again once the SuperSprings go on next week.

For the rear I have Fox 2.0 remote reservoir shocks & coach builder shackles. My last tundra I had on board air with bags in the rear, I do miss that when loaded up.

I am familiar with Gruner Vetlinner which I love with Thai food.

What is this wine you speak of, actually I would love to see the packaging.
