Are you tired of limiting your 2022 or 2023 Toyota Tundra to paved roads? Just because you didn’t choose one of the off-road trims of the Tundra doesn’t mean you can’t have a trail-riding truck. The Toyota Tundra is now eligible for a factory lift kit that can turn any new generation full-size Toyota truck into a real off-road beast.
Forget the TRD Pro trim; check out this Toyota Tundra lift kit
The Toyota Tundra TRD Pro brings a shocking sticker price of $70,000, which might be a lot more than you want to spend. When you want your Tundra to be an off-roader but don’t want to reach TRD Pro price levels, there’s an option that only costs $3,995.
Car and Driver tells us that Toyota now offers a factory lift kit for the full-size Tundra models that aren’t already set up for off-roading. This lift kit, crafted by Toyota Racing Development, adds parts and lift to this truck.
Which Tundra models are not eligible for the new lift kit?
You cannot have this new kit with the TRD Pro or TRD Sport models. It’s also unavailable for trucks with air suspension, including those with optional adaptive dampers. This new lift kit adds some excellent off-road features to make the Tundra more fun.
What does this new Toyota Tundra lift kit include?
Adding this kit to your full-size 2022 or 2023 Toyota truck gives you:
- Bilstein monotube shocks
- Taller front coil springs (painted red)
- Forged upper control arms from Roush Performance
- Front extended driveshafts
- Rear spring spacers
- Front stabilizer links
- New lower knuckles
- Better bump stops
- Improved outer tie rods
How does this lift kit change the Tundra’s off-road performance?
This new Toyota Tundra lift kit adds 2.6 inches of ground clearance and changes the off-road angles. The approach angle changes from 21 to 26 degrees, while the departure angle increases from 24 to 25 degrees.
Does this kit work with the Toyota Safety Sense system of the Tundra?
Unlike most aftermarket kits, this new Toyota Tundra lift kit works with the Toyota Safety Sense system. This means those safety features you paid to have included in your modern full-size Toyota truck continue to work with this new off-road kit.
Does this new lift kit negatively impact the Tundra’s warranty?
If the new lift kit is installed during the purchase process of the 2022 or 2023 Toyota Tundra, the factory warranty includes the new kit. When this off-road lift kit is installed after purchase, it comes with a 12-month warranty.
How can you add this Toyota Tundra lift kit to your truck?
If you want to turn your Tundra into an off-road machine, visit your local Toyota dealer. This new Toyota lift kit is a dealer-installed feature. This gives you the expertise and protection required for a proper installation.
As mentioned, the kit costs $3,995, which doesn’t cover the cost of installation. That said, consider the price difference between the 2023 Toyota Tundra SR5 at $42,470 and the TRD Pro at $70,000, and you can see the value of adding this lift kit.
