Toyota now offers a lift kit for the 2022 Tundra and newer pickups. A dealer-installed package raises the suspension three inches, improves approach and departure angles, and increases the truck’s ground clearance. It’s the only Toyota-approved lift kit that’s compatible with its SafetySense system.
Developed by Toyota Racing Development (TRD) engineers, the kit increases front ride height by three inches and rear ride height by two inches. Ground clearance increases by 2.6 inches, while approach and departure angles increase from 21 and 24 degrees to 26 and 25 degrees, respectively.
The kit is equipped with Bilstein front and rear monotube shocks, Roush Performance forged upper control arms, and TRD-tuned red coil springs. It also includes front drive shaft extensions, brake flex hoses, front bumper stops, rear springs spacers, and the necessary installation hardware for the Tundra. It’s similar to the kit Toyota introduced last year for the Tacoma, adding a two-inch lift to the popular midsize model.
“We designed this kit to work seamlessly with the Tundra’s standard features, retain all Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) functionality, create a kit with a high center of gravity and similar stock driving dynamics. designed to maintain, and provide customers with a look and feel of an elevator,” said TRD principal engineer Mikhal Al Arkoli.
Toyota will offer the upgrade with a 5.5- or 6.5-foot bed on select 2022 and newer Tundra iFORCE and iFORCE-Max 4×4 models. The kit is not compatible with TRD Pro, TRD Sport, or trucks equipped with Toyota’s Adaptive Variable Suspension or air suspension. The kit includes a three-year, 36,000-mile warranty if installed at the time of purchase. A 12-month warranty is available if purchased after buying a new vehicle.
The kit is available nationwide as a dealer-installed upgrade. Its MSRP is $3,995, and the price does not include installation costs. Toyota overhauled the Tundra for the 2022 model year, giving it a complete redesign inside and out. Toyota gave the truck a minor restyling for the 2023 model year. Tundra sales still outpace Ford, Chevrolet, Ram and GMC, but they’re growing year over year.
