New TRD 3-inch Lift Kit for the Toyota Tundra Is a Win

The TRD 3-inch lift kit is all the new Toyota Tundra needed


  • That’s three inches in the front, and two in the rear.

  • It includes Bilstein shocks.


We’re big fans of the new 2022 Toyota Tundra. We’ve driven a few examples this year and seriously applaud Toyota’s efforts in keeping up with the impossibly strong competition in the full-size truck segment. One version, review on the way, we recently drove is the TRD Pro and, well, the TRD 3-inch lift kit isn’t compatible with the model.

But that’s not bad news as the Tundra TRD Pro is already a go-anywhere do-anything hero. The new lift kit will work with all other models unless it is equipped with the optional Adaptive Variable Suspension (AVS) or air suspension. The TRD 3-inch lift kit is designed to fit and work with all existing hardware and software.

“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.”

Priced at $3,995 US excluding labour (dealer installation only), the lift kit increases the Tundra’s ground clearance by 2.6 inches and gives it that all-important serious-truck look.

Here’s what’s included in the package:

  • 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 driveshafts

  • Front bump stops

  • Extended brake flex hoses

  • Rear spring spacers
