Regardless, that's an impressive amount of weight in a Disco
I use the Puma almost every time to pick the magazines up, this time was an exception as I am running the transporter plates from the Puma on my D1 until it's inspected

The old white puma we had was perfect for this as it ran the inner helper springs and road significantly better with 2000lbs in the back.

Guessed by how the boxes were pitched in the bed, how many - I figured around 25. So 45x25 is 1125. I was close!!

Yeah I was going to guess 1122 because it's my ATM password but I decided to go with a bogus guess. I would have been SO close!

No. And believe me I've tried. Impossible. I'm going to guess somewhere around 1124
