    I see those 'jeep only' trails is doing some damage to the truck. What suspension are you running?

    Well, that was interesting, to say the least.

    Gotta love those FWC's though.

    I've been rocking an RTT for the last couple years but I've been looking at the FWC project m. Has anyone seen it in person?

    Saw one on display when I was at the factory a couple weeks back. I looks pretty nice, good quality which is a given with FWC. However someone on Wander the West pointed out that it should be called Project D for all the dust that's going to get in just like a regular cap/canopy/shell/thing that covers the bed.

    That is a good point, though if you seal up the holes in the bed pretty good it will keep most of the dust out. I would get a regular FWC but I use my truck to chase off road races and need the bed space.

    I heard insider information that the installs on these have been a pain in the ass, I mean it has to be installed by a dealer but still something to note. They look like a cool idea from a good company, but I think if you want a FWC you want a camper. If you want a wedge topper you want something else.

    First time towing it with the new tundra today. Air bags should be here tomorrow so that squat should go away. I had read the TRD pro squats pretty bad and it’s true. Worse than my last truck (2012 ram 1500)

    Your trailer looks level, maybe just adjust your hitch height and add heavier levelling bars...air bags works too :D

    Honestly its a compromise for the mrs. I like the idea of a GoFast, I followed their start on tacomaworld and have seen a few in person, they seem even better now with their new hinge design. The mrs does not like the idea of the removable floor panels and before me, her idea of camping was a travel trailer.... I really need the use of the bed and a regular FWC would not work for me though they are very nice.

    I actually adjusted the hitch height after I took the pic. I had dropped the camper off to get a bunch of hail damage repaired and bought the new truck between dropping it off and picking it up. The tundra hitch was a good bit lower than the ram. But it still squats pretty bad even after adjusting.

    I'm willing to bet it squats a similar amount to the Ram but the TRD Pro is leveled so any amount of squat makes it nose high.

    Making it a better sex cave? :rofl:Guessing there’s less camper sway that way.

    So for the ultimate anti sway for “towing” I definitely recommend the spring pack upgrade. When I get up in the camper there’s no telling I’m in there ;) (I weigh 200 lbs and move pretty well.)
    And why would you ever cheap out for airbags at that point. This is a sex build.

    Tundra is always a better sex cave. She gets in says... “I’ve been in a few Tacoma’s... but this thing is huge.” I say, “thanks”

    FYI great Smokey mountains pretty much closed after October 31. Need to do more research about northern AZ camping before I leave.

    There's an Icon 1.5" Expansion Pack, is that what you're talking about or a complete Rear Leaf replacement?
