Your caddy goes 70??  ;)  

I've hauled full 55 gallon drums around no problem.  I regularly fill
the back with 35 gallon jugs of vegetable oil.  I remember bottoming the
springs/exhaust out with 23 jugs (about 800#)

That being said, I do notice slow braking and it's hard to keep it up at
highway speeds (Of course I'm pushing 300k on the original 1.6NA)
