Prospective FWC buyer, looking to get either a Raven or Hawk Shell model, and am trying to as much research as I can.
I have a 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel. Front & rear coil springs & factory air suspension. GAWR = 3900lbs for both the front and rear, with a max payload of 1075lbs.
I'll most likely have to upgrade the rear coil springs to something like the TufTruck HD Coil Springs (which have a rating of 2550lbs).
As far as Hawk vs. Raven... the Rebel's bed is 67", tailgate down adds another 23.5". Anyone have a 5'-7" bed that they placed a Hawk in? Tailgate on or off? Any center of gravity, or other, issues? While I know the Raven will fit, I kinda like those extra 10" the Hawk offers. You can never have enough storage space!
