    Has anyone who added a fiberglass camper shell to their Taco experienced any significant drop in the rear end?

    I just ordered a new shell and was just curious.

    I will take measurements before and after installation on mine to see. Plus, I carry gear and bicycles so I will try to get that measurement too. In any case, just wondering if there is a fix/mod that is available.

    Thanks.

    Depending on the shell, you will definitely see some sag (more so with commercial caps or mid/high rise caps since they tend to be heavier). Mods to fix it would be a better leaf pack, air bags, an AAL or Timbrens.

    I'm getting a camper shell soon as well, I have the rear leaf TSB done, hopefully that would be enough.
