What prevents the cargo from getting a little too intimate with the back of your head in case of a sudden stop?

Wow! that is an incredible truck, I to did all my own work. I have $1,300
into mine. I only had a month to finish it. I bought it with the back totaled out.
It had taken a t-bone from a freight train on the left side just above the wheel.
I found those adjustable camber links that are used when you lower a honda to
solve all the suspension problems. Then I made a full metal bolt on bed. It bolts
on to the strut towers and existing rear door hinge mounts. The rest is wood
except for the carbon fiber re-purposed snowboard which is now a rear bumper.

I soo want to do this to my Insight. Ive seen a prius and geo truck conversion. I haul and hauled a lot of building materials in my Insight and many times drive with the hatch open, something hanging out with a red flag on the end and a cargo strap hooked to the rear tow thingie to secure the load.

HELP
My civruck needs to carry more load in the rear.
Does anybody know how to lift a honda or get stronger springs?
Can a lowering kit somehow be used to lift?
Thanks

Coil overs are adjustabe and can be used to raise the car. Not sure by how much though. Positive is that springs are usually a higher spring rate so they'll be stiffer than stock.

Glad to see that thing still on the road!
