I will start by saying that I did not drive the truck a ton before doing the upgrade, and it had some serious issues before the work. Below 65 the truck drives amazing, it was super bouncy before to the point of being annoying to drive and I love just cruising now. have not had it in the dirt yet, but im running over tons of stuff that i can find and it absorbs the hits amazingly well. Now On smooth highway 65-75 is fine, on a bumpier road it gets a little bouncy. Hard to say if it is just me being new to the upgrade/truck and I am overfocused on it, or it needs a little more tweaking. Breaking the transmission in , so I will take it back to the shop to see if we can adjust the ride a bit. I think the springs are a little heavier to offset the winch and the eventual camper for the back, so that might have something to do with it. It is a long wheel base and empty..

I'll put some more miles on and off road and update the thread, have a few bigger trips planned.

150k miles , I don't drive much, going to last me a lifetime :)
I saw your truck at Joe's. Very nice. My Dynatrac hub kit is on the pallet. Joe's been super busy,but hopefully,I can get them installed soon.
He and Pablo sure do good work. What camper are you going with? The added camper weight should mellow out the suspension.

I'm starting to think most of the bounce is that the 52 is a pretty bumpy road.. I am loving the truck , the guys did an awesome job on it. A popup for sure, I was checking your truck out awhile back when you had it in there , nice setup. I am leaning towards a shell popup so i can toss stuff in the back and go out and do things during the day. Can't wait to get one , once you start thinking about it , hard to go back to normal camping , the rolling in late must be so much better with the camper, or stealth camping..

Yeah,a shell's a good compromise. That queen sized bed is what makes it along with getting out of the elements.

I can see a improvement in the mileage , will have to do some better recording to get a solid number.
