As long as you realize youre in a truck not a jeep, its plenty capable. I'm not trying to crawl boulders or do anything too extreme. It is a truck so it handles dirt roads and mild trails fine. The biggest concern of this truck vs a short bed (and even that has the same problem vs a jeep) is tight corners. But for a bit of adventuring it does fine.

Pulled the trigger on icon 2.5 Series coilovers (for about 2-2.25" lift up front and icon 2.0 Series rear shocks. Also add a leaf rear helper Springs for about 1 - 1.5" lift back there to level it out a bit.

Only ordered a couple days ago and the coilovers are already here. Fast shipping, thanks and auto spring! Super excited to get these installed, but probably won't have time for a couple weeks

Dog must inspect the new shiny.

Do you remember which toolbox it was that you got? I'm looking to get one but none look good. I do really like the way this on looks and it doesn't cover up half the back window.
