    Thanks. Yeah, I just couldn't remember if you were running medium or heavy. Aside from the lean, how do you like the ride? I want a RTT but not sure when I'll get one and I won't keep it on all the time.

    I had the suspension without an rtt and rack for a few months. I planned on getting the rtt, and I plan on a High clearance rear. So i sucked it up. If you don't think you will have weight back there, I think the heavy's are unnecessary, and I wouldn't get them. They made the ride feel WAY stiffer than factory.

    I plan to go the camper shell and build a basic platform in the back versus an RTT. Would you get the heavy ALL or the medium would be fine?

    If I was you Id get the heavy's. But ride quality is always subjective. For weight carrying abilities, The heavies are where its at for ME.

    I’d say the same. Shells are like 200 lbs, plus let’s say 50 for a platform. Then any gear you throw in and it adds up quick.

    The idea is to make a fully modular, semi bolt- together bed rack utilizing the 100+ feet of uni-stut that's mostly still on my work truck. As far as the rotopax, I had a 14 gauge grease duct from a previous job that I cut up and bolted the mounts to, then just used four T- bolts to fully mount it to the front bed rail.

    Anyone wanna buy my dirt designs cross bar and strut tower mounts? Asking 320 obo. Brand new, never installed. It wont fit over the magical pixie compressor on top of the engine.

    I would be willing to sell the crossbar separately and keep the mounts.
