New to truck Builds, spitball session for build ideas

Post by WhiskeyBear667 » Fri Sep 18, 2020 2:38 am

hey guys,

Tech and gear heads Unite! Lol

I'm still working out the finer details of my build before I buy my powerwagon next year. (Currently paying off debts and medical bills from my late wife)

I am looking to do full-time Overlanding for a year. I know I will need really good Airbags and sway bar. I was hoping to go with Helwig but, they are temporarily out due to this covid farce.

Any one have any better suggestions I am all ears.

Plan to put a 1400lb Bundutec USA truck camper with a custom SherpTek flatbed

I'd also like to upgrade to 37's... should i go with the AEV lift or is there something better?

I have loads of experience building jeeps but I'm new to truck builds.

I am here to learn.

Thank you for your time

Check Thuren and Carli for suspension systems ideas.

i think aev is just spacers on top the spring. seems cheese dick to me. thuren springs is solid choice. never used carlis so no experience there

You don't need a lift to run 37s. The AEV wheels are nice. Thuren is great, pro install unless you are a pretty advanced home mechanic. If you intend to go off-road then front and rear diff armor (lowest parts of the truck) and then consider sliders.
