There is one for sale around me for a great deal. Elderly owned, well maintained not a crap ton of miles on it. Anyone using one of these for camping and exploring?

I ha e a 2011 F150 extended cab 8’. bed,4x4 5.0 heavy payload, with a FWC Granby shell. This is the 8200lb GVW, means a 2200lb payload capacity. It’s the 7 lug wheel. It’s not a small truck, I park in the back of parking lots.

I didn’t have to do anything to the suspension to haul the camper, I am over due for shocks on it. It turns out it might not be simple, I am not finding anyone that lists non OEM shocks for it. Blistering told me they can not recommend any for it as they have not done any testing

Thats a long beast. I usually see them for fleet trucks. The payload is nice. Depends on how off road you want to get, the wheelbase is murder, and you can't turn worth a damn. But if you are using it to transport yourself to a more base camp sort of setting with quad or dirt bikes or bicycles then it could be a good idea.

Even if Bilstein 4600's are damped a little too light because they're for regular 150's, they'd likely work just fine.

Thanks, I was looking at the 6100’s but shied away when I was t sure about the differences.

I haven’t had enough time to see if the rest of the parts are the same.
