We’ are going to be adding a few hundred pounds of extra weight on Bedrock II with new bedcap and slide-out drawers.
I’m planning on using the A.R.E. Overland’s roof rack and throwing heavy items inside the topper from time to time–as well as towing a trailer or two.
That said, thought it’d be nice to put a little helper spring in the rear.
Installed Super Springs “vehicle stabilizer” single-leaf overloads in the rear.
Easy upgrade. Less than an hour. 3/4″ wrench and air gun.
Doesn’t change ride that much from stock. Lifted rear maybe 1-2 inches.
Super Springs will really help when carrying 500-1,000 pounds in the bed.
Also swapped out stock rear shocks and replaced them with ReadyLift’s new SST 9000-series shocks.
Great upgrade in itself.- Bruce Smith/Editor
