I am still in the process of doing up a GU 4.2TD coil cab which I intend to add a carry me camper to (337kg ) it will not be on full time , I am looking at ARBs OME set up with springs and shocks or the Opp Lock set up using Tough Dog products ,the prices are simmilar so thats not a concern ,any comments on either of these products for my set up would be of help or is there another product line that may be better .Born to drive a 4x4 , not a keyboard

I'm thinking along the same lines as you with camper on back only for trips the rest of the time a farm ute.

OME springs and shocks with Pollt Air in the rear for when camper is on and that ton of wood or fencing gear.

OME have a far better back up if anything goes wrong and thier gear is for one model not one spring fits all.

Iv'e been using Tough Dog's for 3 years with no problems , added polly airs this year to tow camper work a treat. Tough Dog now have a 45 mm shocky i saw in current 4x4 monthly that looks good.Regards Bob

Coil springs are coil springs, they will all be the same if they are the same lift height, but shockies, i now go for the ceaper ones, as even the expensive ones do not last a good 2 month holiday on corrugated roads.
I wont get Rancho's again!
Look into the Poly air bags as well with your camper on.

Why not look at the Airbag Man option? Don't know much about them, but I think they have a setup for your vehicle. The idea sounds good.Russell S
