Hey community. Need help building a weekend warrior. Appreciate your expertise, input and suggestions.
Truck: 21' Tacoma DCLB TRD Offroad
Camper: 09' FWC Finch (700 lbs dry currently)
97% - daily driver
2% - solo camping w/ 900-1100 lbs payload
1% - family camping w/ 1600-1800 lbs payload
Short Term Build:
I'm looking for the shortest route to camping. Ride Rite bags + daystar cradles on a stock rig
[Q1] Missing anything?
Long Term Build:
Budget conscious build based on driving plans (above) that has me (1) still able to park in my garage (standard height door) and (2) doesn't mean driving the worlds stiffest rear end to pick up groceries. I do plan on eventually being much heavier w/ skids, sliders, tires, portable winch, hitch swing, etc.
Long Term build:
ARB Old Man Emu 2 Inch Lift Kit (Heavy Load) - OMETAC16HKSB
Ride Rite bags + daystar cradles
Fit 285/75R16 tires
[Q2] OME Dakar HD Leafs + air bags be enough? Or do I need Deaver leaf pack?
[Q3] Will the heavy duty front coil springs be overkill since all weight is in the back?
[Q4] Regear? What to?
Payload - Adding bodies, gear, protection, camper, tires and extras Im starring @ 1745 lb. total payload
off road - Don't plan on rock crawling w/ all this weight but was planning on a portable winch, sliders, skids, etc...you never know
Towing - could tow a popup trailer (1500 lbs) in future...just a dream for now
