    You both seem to be providing similar advice regarding weight and suspension. I am concerned about weight!

    I will be adding the following heavy items:
    1. drawer system - essential in my experience.
    2. RTT.
    3. Two additional batteries - far forward in the canopy.
    4. Water Tank (+-60l).
    5. Extra fuel tank (total 180l).
    5. Tools, recovery equipment and spares. (possibly wheel bearings and shocks)
    6. Double Wheel carrier.
    7. Bull Bar with winch.

    That all adds up! I may then require heavier springs and shocks?
    Add it up - not so difficult to work out the sums - and check what load your vehicle can take.
