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

423627 Views 31 Replies 23 Participants Last post by  Poodle Head Mikey
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.

Checkout for up grading. I had the TSB mod but it did little to easy the bottoming out but then I keep equipment in the back but I don't it should be enough to make it hit as often as it does so I might just add a leaf. Looks factory so won't show up as a add on.
I have a topper too, ARE along w/ the equipment in the back always
