Share

A 2022 Toyota Tundra 3-inch lift from the dealer complete with a warranty and operational safety sense tech? Yes, please!

One of the more common modifications from truck owners is lifting the truck to allow for larger tires or to improve the look. Aftermarket lift kits have had a suspect history of quality, compatibility and durability.

Worry no more. The Toyota Tundra 3-inch lift kit is now available as a dealer option.

What is the Toyota Tundra 3-inch lift kit?

In the simplest of terms, the Toyota Tundra 3-inch lift kit is everything you need to modify the truck including the suspension changes.

Toyota says the highlights of the lift kit include:

  • Bilstein front & rear shocks
  • Taller front coil springs
  • Roush forged upper control arms
  • Front lower knuckles
  • Front stabilizer links
  • Front outer tie rods
  • Front tie rod sleeves
  • Front extended drive shafts
  • Front bump stops
  • Extended brake flex hoses
  • Rear spring spacers

The kit also includes red TRD-tuned coil springs and installation hardware. Developed by Toyota TRD engineers, there is a 3-inch lift in the front and a 2-inch lift in the back. What’s more, the lift kit works with the Toyota Safety Sense system.

With the kit installed, overall ground clearance increases by 2.6 inches. Furthermore, 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 compatible with model year 2022 and newer Tundra iFORCE and iFORCE-Max 4×4 models with either the 5.5- or 6.5-foot bed. However, the kit is not compatible with the TRD Pro, TRD Sport or trucks equipped with the optional Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) or air suspension.

This dealer-installed option retails for $3,995.

The bottom line

Factory or dealer installed lift kits have gained popularity in recent years, and it’s easy to see why. First, you don’t void the factory warranty through using an untested lift kit, which could cause more harm than good. Plus, all the safety tech works, so no warning lights blaring in your face. Even better: Your dealer can install it for you, meaning you don’t have to know a buddy or find a separate shop with less knowledge of your truck.

The fact you can start your modification look, have the dealer install it before delivery and include it on your loan is a true win, win, win and win.
