    Do you carry anything in the bed or tow anything? I'm curious about how much the back end might squat. Being that the spring rate isn't changed but just lifted off the axle I'm guessing it's probably gonna be the same as stock. I routinely carry a dog, heavy bike rack and 1-4 bikes and the truck sags pretty hard. Camping gear in there too and it's comical. I have 285s on the truck now without issue and I'm more concerned with getting rid of the Cali Lean than actually lifting the truck, although the extra height wouldn't hurt my feelings. The simplicity of the Westcott kit is appealing but I'm thinking it won't help much in the way of keeping the back up while loaded. Probably answered my own question...

    I have a 2020 TRD pro and purchased the westcott designs front kit and looking into doing an icon add a leaf or the icon rxt leaf pack stage 1 replacement for the rears. Has anyone done either/or?

    Honestly I don't carry much in the back. Usually a couple kayaks with gear, and it doesn't squat at all. However, it does squat a bit with my 4 wheeler loaded in the bed

    I don't have the Wescott lift installed but my local Toyota dealer has them in stock and does install them pretty regularly. The only thing I don't like about the Wescott is it doesn't leave any rake. It almost looks like the rear is lower, visually.

    People have taken measurements and by the numbers it is not. Just looks that way to me.

    Thanks for the information. Sounds decent if you’re Local Toyota dealer is using the kit. I haven’t seen one in person to see the difference in rake. I just want something that doesn’t mess with the ride and does the least amount of damage to the factory suspension.

    The Westcott Kit will do that for you.

    Yes, I also see that Toyota of Bellevue does them often (@TheToyotaGarage) This is the exact reason I only purchased the kit for the front. But I’m still trying to figure out what people have done for the rear. So far I hear of people doing an add a leaf and after time I hear the add a leaf ends up just sagging. So as an alternative I’m more curious if it’s possible to just swap out for the ICON RXT leaf pack option 1.

    If you are in the area @TheToyotaGarage can get you dialed in. If not, you can order your kit directly from Westcott.

    Michael's Toyota of Bellevue has the best aftermarket department in the State of Washington. Whether it's a lift kit, audio, tint, wraps.....custom leather.....they do it all.

    Not many dealers do that.

    Thanks! I’ll give it a try. I’ve read great reviews on this kit.

    Yeah, I’ll have to order directly through Westcott since I’m in KY.
    That’s a nice perk for sure

    Dealer install sounds expensive. At what point do you just upgrade the whole suspension.
