Just found a Gen 3 today and will be moving my overland set up. Interested if anyone is using pick up truck camper and made any suspension mods.

I was running a Scout Olympic on Gen 2 with an added leaf spring and Timbern bump stops. Worked well but a little stiff.

The gen 3 has a little more payload and I think if needed, air bags maybe a better option.

This was a change from the iKamper Roof Top Tent RTT that I was using.

Nice, and atlas blue too! What do you plan on doing for the gen 3?

I’m building something similar, currently running a RSI smartcap +GFC RTT (not pictured yet) and a master slide bed tray. Some of these items to be installed in the next couple of weeks. Also for suspension going with RPG Perch collars for front (1.25”?) and rear (2.25”) - also full RPG tie rods with boots. Will be adding eibach rear springs when they come to market in the near future for travel in the rear.

I just put 37” K02’s on new Fifteen52 Range HD’s in Magnesium. Will be posting more details on it as things progress.

yea big diff. I know I dont carry a lot of weight. maybe 200-300 lbs 400 max tools mostly but camping I am a minimalist. the less the better. the switch to coils it sags so much more. better ride but more sag for sure.

Installed a coil insert airbag today that should solve my issue. While not my preference, there was nothing available after market for Gen 3. I studied the Dodge Ram coil spring and ordered the Airlift Airbag for Dodge Ram 2019 up. The coils are about the same size... so it is an off label use. Will be testing this week. Install was straight forward at about 2 hours.
