so I have been sleeping in the 110 the last few times out to the desert and we are going to be at it again next weekend and I was trying google sketchup to see if I could actually plan out a better sleeping platform - anyone have some great ideas - I want it to clear my cooler

this is how far I have gotten in my 30 minutes of google use

then I google defender sketch up and find this - I guess its a better starting point

Just drove to work only to find out I blew out both rear shocks! Any recommendations for good rears? I guess the guys at tough dogg in Australia when they say outback tested have not driven the Mojave road

Jay, those Mojave Desert shots, is that trail the one from Afton Rd off of I-15 south of Baker? If so, I've been there before to camp! Literally in the middle of nowhere! I miss the west coast!

Cool, there's an area called Devil's playground (or something like that), that you can hit and loop you around Zyzzx Rd south of Primm, NV. Nice day-long trail ride! Lots of big horns and other interesting animals around. Then you can hit Mad Greek on baker before you head home!

jjstahl3, did you sort out a decision on the rear shocks yet?
Have you considered your 2 other options? first is to double up on the rear shocks, two per side, the second pair mounted behind the axle this effectively halves the work that each one does and prevents the oil/gas from overheating and popping the seals. All you need is to weld two extra brackets on the axle case and fit two standard shock mounts on the chassis ( there should be pre-drilled holes already in situ at the very place you'll need them ) The second option is to fit smaller diameter helper springs in addition to the standard ones.
Given that you are using it as a camping/overland rig both these options will make a huge difference to handling and comfort, namely that body roll is significantly diminished.
The forum member that you bought your vehicle from has a 110 which came with the twin shock assembly fitted, so he could verify the benefits of this set-up.
Hope this helps

Agreed, dual shocks are the way to go for ROW trucks with no sway bar.
I've run both setups and dual shocks helps body roll significantly and when you're carrying weight on the roof and traveling 50mph plus, it makes all the difference in the world.

The smaller springs are 130 inner springs, there are parts off the shelf to do this.

I believe the springs are slightly shorter than the main springs so they only come into play when there are heavier loads on board.
