I did this less analytically. For mini trucks, there is a LSPV bracket that outfitters sell or give you with lift kits. Mine came from NWOR, but Roger Brown, Downey and maybe others have them. Or you can make one yourself with a piece of stock and a drill. It raises the mount on the axle to match the amount of lift. I had to adjust mine slightly more, even with the WilderNest my back brakes weren't doing much work until I really piled in the cargo. I messed with it one time camping by driving down a nice dirt road and slamming on the brakes, then adjusting the LSPV just above the point where the back brakes would lock in a panic stop. It's pretty easy to tell if you have the adjustment wrong. If you see the headlights of the people behind you coming down Georgetown hill after a day at Loveland, you have too much rear bias. :-)

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
