Partner,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.
What year Taco do you have and how many leafs do you have in the rear?
If you have an 07+ with 3-4 leafs you should be fine. If you have an 06 like me that came it 1.5 then no... if you are getting this for sure you can wait til afet you intall or go and get the TSB before you have this installed.
Either way... get the TSB f you plan on hauling anything other than the sleeper IMO.
Search under the rear suspension TSB and you can look at how to get this done.
Good luck and make sure you post pics if you do get the sleeper.
