Hello! I lucked out and got myself a goregeous 07 Bobcat and am installing it on my 09 Tacoma next week. Brand new to the popup life and wondering the process of installation, mainly if any modifications need to be made to the bed.

Thanks in advance! See you out there

Way to go with getting that Bobcat.They are a great camper small enough to get into tight places but

large enough so you don't feel like living in a cave.

 

Do you have LT truck tires and some sort of air bag in the rear?

 

Have a great time with your new camper.

Does the 09 have a composite bed? The composite bed requires some extra mounting steps and equipment if so. If getting to Sacramento is handy prior I’d suggest having ATC do the install for you at the factory. I’ve had it done in my last two trucks there and feel it’s money well spent.

If getting to Sac isn’t handy I’d call ATC. They are great at helping with stuff over the phone. Great company.

I do have an upgraded suspension but no airbags. I was looking into the airbags, any you would reccomend? Currently out of town but I have so sturdy off-road tires on right now. Couldn't tell you the size or brand though.

Yeah it has the composite bed. I emailed ATC today! Probably wont be able to get to Sacramento though...

But I'll give them a call! Thanks for your help!

I have Firestone air bags on my Tundra.
Other members also use them.

 

What I like about them is you can adjust the lift side to side.

And if the camper is off the truck you can lower the air pressure

for a better ride.

 

They also ride very nicely.
