Shell and Sleeping Platform; Is 300 lbs Too Much Weight?

Planning on buying a Tacoma Access Cab TRD Off Road 4x4 in the next few weeks. One of the first priorities will be to put on a shell (probably ARE) and bulid a sleeping platform in the back. Total weight will be +/- 300 lbs. Based on all the suspension issues that the Tacoma's seem to have, will I have an issue with this ammount of weight? Will I need to upgrade the suspension, or will the existing suspension (with or without the TSB) be good enough? Also, if I do need an upgrade, what would you suggest?

Thanks in advance for your help.

ya there is no telling, judging by what ppl are saying trucks seem to very as to what they bottom out on and to what extent they sag, id say you'd be fine with 300 lbs unless you hit quite a bump, worse comes to worse you get a suspension upgrade
