Hey guys, I thought I'd introduce my new build! I previously had a 2wd Tacoma as a daily driver and an fj60 camping rig, but I decided to sell them both. Although it was a tough decision, maintaining two rigs wasn't something I wanted to continue doing.

Here she is.

After about a week of ownership, a flippac was posted for sale locally. I messaged the seller asking if he was interested in trading the flippac for my silver camper from my previous 2wd Tacoma. To my surprise he said yes!

The flippac isn't perfect I'm stoked to finally have one. The only downside is the flippacs weight on the 20-year-old leaf springs.

You can see how much it made the rear end sag.

While I did research on the suspension setup I wanted I decided to correct the paint. The truck is a daily driver and camping rig so I don't necessarily need a perfect finish.

I used a porter cable DA polisher, chemical guys pads and HD SPEED single stage polish. Let me know what you think!

I contacted a good friend who works at ORW and we decided on the KING shocks front and rear along with OME heavy leaf springs.94161

In addition, I picked up some 265/75/16 BFG KO2 to replace the old rugged trail tires.

Wow, nice rig! What are your plans for the interior of the Atlas? Are you planning to leave it as is or is a build out in your future? Either way its a super nice camper!
