I'm sure the Tacoma with larger motor is always mo betta, but how does a Fleet Shell do on a SR Tacoma?

 Thanks-

My fleet lives on my 4cyl tacoma 2009 access cab. When fully loaded she was a bit dogged but I had full kitchen in mine with water tanks. When it was a shell it was actaully pretty okay, for a 4cyl.

One of the testimonials on the FWC site was by noted photographer Jack Dykinga. If I remember correctly, he was a fan of the 4 cylinder, manual transmission under his campers. If I find a link, I’ll post it.

Like this? 2.4 liter, manual, 2wd. I was just trying it on for a few days. Camper weighed 960 lbs at the scrap yard scale. I took everything out down to the paneling, left the bed overhead and now weighs 718lbs. I’m going to try it on a trip after I air bag the rear and install new shocks up front. How bad could it be? Haha.

It will get you where you are going for sure. Especially a shell. My fully loaded Ranger II is mounted full time on my 1986 22RTE 4x4. It does fine.

My 2011 Eagle was on my 2001 4 cylinder Tacoma for 5 years. Yes we had to flap our arms out the window going up hill but overall it did okay.
