Toyota Tundra can reach new height

The new Toyota Tundra is raising the bar once again with a new 3.0-inch lift kit developed by Toyota Racing Development (TRD) that makes the already capable full-size pickup bigger and bolder.

This new lift kit is available nationwide as a dealer-installed option.

It is the only Toyota-approved lift kit designed to work with the Toyota Safety Sense System (TSS).

“There are many compromises with aftermarket lift kits, some of which may affect the function of vehicle features or safety systems,” says Mikhal el Arculli, principal engineer at TRD.

“We have designed this kit,” he explains, “to work seamlessly with standard Tundra features, retain all Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) functionality, maintain similar driving dynamics by creating a kit with a high center of gravity. and deliver the look customers want.”

This lift kit was tested and installed by the available dealer on the new Tacoma mid-size pickup.

The shock absorbers feature special pistons to provide low-speed body control as well as exceptional high-speed stability.

The kit designed and developed by TRD includes:

  • Front and rear Bilstein shock absorbers
  • Taller front coil springs
  • Roush Forged Upper Control Arms
  • Lower front knuckles
  • Front Stabilizer Links
  • Front outer braces
  • Extended front driveshafts
  • Extended flexible brake hoses
  • Rear spring spacers

The kit not only raises the truck, giving it a challenging appearance and increasing ground clearance by 2.6 inches, but also increases off-road capability with increased approach and departure angles.

Plus, the Tundra TRD includes all necessary hardware and is only available for dealer installation.

Manufacturer’s suggested retail price for this kit is $3,995, not including installation labor.

It is available for the 2022 Tundra model and newer Tundra iFORCE and iFORCE -Max 4×4 models, with a 5.5- or 6.5-foot bed.

This kit is not compatible with TRD Pro, TRD Sport, or trucks equipped with optional Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) or air suspension.

The Tundra TRD lift kit comes backed by the same warranty as all TRD accessories, including a 3-year, 36,000-mile parts warranty if installed before or at the time of sale.

If purchased after new vehicle purchase, coverage is 12 months, regardless of mileage from the date the accessory was installed on the vehicle.
