Toyota has announced that Tundra models starting with the 2022 model year are available with a TRD 3-inch lift kit. It’s a dealer installed option and is designed to work with the Toyota Safety Sense system.
“There are many compromises with aftermarket lift kits, some of which can impact the function of vehicle features or safety systems,” Mikhal el Arculli, TRD principal engineer says. “We have designed this kit to work seamlessly with the Tundra’s standard features, retain all Toyota Safety Sense (TSS) functionality, maintain similar stock driving dynamics by creating a kit with a high center of gravity and provide a look and feel customers want with a lift.”
The lift kit has a 3-inch lift at the front and a 2-inch lift at the rear. It features Bilstein monotube shocks, Roush forged upper control arms and TRD red coil springs. The kit increases the ground clearance by 2.6 inches, it also increases off-road capability with increased approach and departure angles. The approach angle increases from 21.0 to 26.0 degrees and departure angle from 24.0 to 25.0 degrees.
The lift kit is priced at $3,995, not including installation labor. It is available for the Tundra iForce and iForce-Max 4×4 models with either the 5.5- or 6.5-foot bed. The kit is not compatible with the TRD Pro, TRD Sport or trucks equipped with the optional Adaptive Variable Suspension or air suspension.
