Front of 2013 bottoms out in bed of pickup

2013 max limited front bottoms out in the bed of my pickup on the interstate. Shocks are adjusted to stiffest setting. I need suggestions. I wondered why when I was going down hills I was hitting every damn rock with the skid plate.

If you have a G2 I think you need the Outlander 1000 lift. Get ahold of Rubberdown and ask him. Quality is amazing. You only need 2 for the front and he will sell just 2 if you want.

the "XMR" spring spacers are for the XMRs with the air shocks I believe.

Could you please elaborate. What do you mean it bottoms out with nobody on it while it in the back of your truck. I dont get it.

that would make me think there is something wrong in the front end. For it to bottom out from a bump in the road. Hell, I am not a big person but still weigh over 150. I can't make mine bottom out by pushing down on the front end. How big are the bumps that is being hit and at what speed?
