Toytec Lift Kits

Hey guys I was looking at lift kits for my 2009 4x4 double cab Tacoma and I stumbled across Toytec. I was wondering if anyone knew anything about these systems. I want to do the 3 inch add-a-leaf in the back and 3.5 inch adjustable coil overs. Its one package at toytec. It costs a little over a grand, and money is tight so I need to make sure that when I purchase a lift, it will last. I do not like the idea of spacers either. If I don't go with toytec it will be fabtec. I already have 33 inch tires on 17x9 rims ready to go. Any ideas? Comments? Suggestions? Thanks a bunch.

It's a very good lift. I bet 90% of the lifted Tacomas on this site are lifted with Toytec. PM Neubs for a toytec discount too!

Thats a good kit:

One thing I did was get one priced with what I preferred such as rear 5125's instead of the procomps. Here is what I came up with:

Ex. Brake Lines 70
C/Os 800.00
TSB AAL 80.00
(5125s) 200.00
Diff Drop 30.00
Sway bar clamps 20.00

= 1,200

As far as FABTECH, uh, thats a whole different ball Game. $1600ish was cheapest I seen during Christmas specials for the Basic kit. And install can range around $700 and up. Plus they use a spacer in front and block in rear. More for looks unless you pay out the ass for their more pricey C/O performace series..

If you are looking to fit them 33's, 3" is the way to go. Looks sweet, rides great, and awesome for hitting the trails. Just helped a buddy this weekend install his C/O's and UCA's. Deffinately the setup I want to have after seeing it in person.

PM Neubs if you have any other questions of the ToyTech products and pricing.

Thanks for the help and quick responses guys. I'm a new member here, and I really like it so far. I referred this forum to a couple friends of mine who own tacoma's as well.

Wow, cant argue with that one. With that pricing, seems like it all depends on what look you want. If you plan on offraoding alot, you might wanna stay in the 3" range.

But hey, enjoy the modding.

Cool dudes. I think i'm gonna go for the toytec 3 inch lift. As for the UCA's, they will come later. I won't go the full 3.5 on the CO's until I get them. I believe that kit comes with a 2.5 AAL system for the rear so 3 inches in the front and 2.5 in the back should look ok, with 33's on 17x9's. When I get some more money i'll buy the UCA's and raise it up a little more to level.

As for the procomp posting, thats a sweet deal. Stage 1 though, is that just basic? I didn't think that was a performance lift, so i tried to stay away from it. Plus, no lift companies have come out with a 6 inch lift for the 2009 tacoma's because they are equiped with VSC (vehicle stability control). 3 inch is all i need anyway, I do travel a little, and I hunt four wheel and just play around in the hills alot. So 3 inch should be great. I just want a quality lift is all.

I think that Toytec 3" coilover package looks like a sweet deal. They had it listed for $999 initially... Neubs can get a 10% discount code for you I believe, which makes it an even better deal. There's also an upcoming group buy as socalman mentioned, so might want to wait and see what kind of deal they offer for that. I know they did a GB on Toyota Nation a while back, and had pretty good discounts on just the coilovers.

Just to let you know (unless I misinterpreted you), UCAs don't provide any additional lift. It allows you to correct alignment issues when lifting over 2".

Another thing I learned this week. New UCAs are pretty important. Spend the money for them. Total Chaos.

Longhorn, ya I meant that I won't adjust the CO's to the full 3.5 until I get aftermarket UCA's because of the extra stress on the stock UCA's. Thanks for the info though.

Ok im sure this has been brought up before but... Ive got the 6 yr 100K warranty. Ive heard through the grapevine ...(my mom) who used to work in a Toyota body shop... That mods like these may void may warranty. Is there any validaty to this??? Do i have to wait 4 more years!!! Cause ive been serously eyeing TOYTEC's 3" med/ heavy lift kit

armstrm, I have spoken directly with the Maintainance/Services person at the Toyota Dealership about warranties regarding superchargers, and liftkits. I have the extended warranty as well. He said that usually they won't say much about your lifted truck when its not lifted really high with super big tires. Stay normal pretty much. Either way, the lift kit would only effect drive train warranties. The supercharger stuff would be ok if you got the TRD supercharger and had the dealership install it for you. In that case, you would recieve the full warranty on the supercharger. However your warranty decreases if you don't get a TRD one, or if you install it yourself. Thats pretty much what i got from him.

Oh and he also said that unless they can positively prove that an aftermarket intall caused a problem which affected your dealership warranty they usually will not even try. example..you have a cold air intake put on, and your tranny goes out. Your covered. Or you put a lift on and your engine blows. your covered. Basically stupid stuff. It may be more of an issue if you had a supercharger you installed yourself and your engine fried, however if they cannot directly relate the supercharger to it, you most likely will be ok.

Can someone explain to me ( without making me look like a dumbass) what is the difference ( other than dollars) of using a lift kit like this and just using a 3" truxxx leveling kit that costs $450 installed.

I just want to try to accomplish this task as right as I can the first time. I have read countless stories on here where people have bought a leveling kit and within a few months they are changing to the coilovers.

ideas, opinions, suggestions welcome.
Leveling kits are made for looks. They are not effective, comfortable, or stable for use offroad. It uses spacers and blocks. Easy to install for the most part, but not designed to take the stresses of offroading.

To do it "right" it will cost you-But go with a coilover or replacement spring setup.. I think...
