You don’t have to settle for a small truck because the Toyota Tundra understands why ground clearance is incredibly important. Now you can take your 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro to literally new heights with the 3.0-inch lift kit.
What comes with the 2022 Toyota TRD Pro 3.0 inch lift kit?
The 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro is available with a new TRD lift kit that provides a 3.0-inch lift in the front and a 2.0-inch lift in the rear. Provides an additional 2.6 inches of ground clearance. So it goes from 10.6 inches to 13.2 inches.
Toyota noted that TRD engineers developed the kit. It is the only Toyota approved lift kit that is compatible with the Toyota Safety Sense System (TSS). It is available nationwide as a dealer-installed option.
Mikal el Arculli, TRD Principal Engineer, shared that aftermarket lift kits can have various compromises that affect vehicle features and safety systems. But the TRD lift kit is designed to work perfectly with standard Tundra features.
It retains the full functionality of the TSS system and maintains similar driving dynamics with the high center of gravity and confident appearance that drivers want with a lift.
Does the Tundra TRD lift kit have any off road upgrades?
Yes, the 2022 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro lift kit provides additional ground clearance and improved off-road capabilities. Increases the approach angle from 21.0 to 26.0 degrees. Also, the departure angle improves from 24.0 to 25.0 degrees.
Kit includes Bilstein shocks front and rear, taller front coil springs, Roush forged upper control arms, lower front knuckles, front stabilizer links, front outer braces, front tie rod sleeves, extended front driveshafts, bump stops front bumpers, extended brake flex hoses and rear spring spacers.
Bilstein monotube shocks and red TRD coil springs are tuned by TRD, like the lift kit that made its debut for the Toyota Tacoma last year.
Additionally, the shock absorbers feature digestive pistons for improved low-speed body control and exceptional high-speed stability. Roush forged upper control arms are stronger to account for the additional suspension travel provided by the lift.
How much does the Tundra TRD lift kit cost?
You can add the TRD lift kit to the 2022 and newer Toyota Tundra for as low as $3,995. This price covers the cost of hardware but does not include the cost of installation labor.
The kit is available with the iFORCE and iFORCE-MAX 4×4 models combined with the 5.5 or 6.5 foot bed. Cannot be combined with Tundra TRD Pro or TRD Sport trims equipped with optional Adaptive Variable Suspension or Air Suspension.
However, the kit does have a stellar warranty that includes a three-year or 36,000-mile warranty on parts installed before or at the time of sale. If the equipment is added to a truck that has already been purchased, you get 12 months of coverage.
Coverage begins regardless of mileage from the date the kit was installed, or the remainder of any applicable New Vehicle Warranty is available, whichever is better.
We’re ready to see the Toyota Tundra climb even higher. We hope to test a raised model soon to see how it compares to shorter trucks.
