    We just finished up the R&D on our new U Bolt Flip Kit and they are now available on the website!

    They work on 1st and 2nd gen Tacoma. However on the 1st gen, the shocks mount on the bottom spring plate which you will not reuse so you will need to remount your shocks on the axle. The 2nd gens already have the shock mount on the axle so there is no need to remount them!

    Feel free to call or PM me with any questions

    Just have a quick question... For the 2nd gen flip kit, if the main purpose of flip kit is to eliminate damaging the perch n ubolts, wat about the bottom shock mount? It hangs just as low, lower than the ubolts I think.

    shock mount is much closer to the wheel, less likely to get hit, but yes still hangs low

    only way to solve that is to relocate the shocks...most have done a inverted "V" setup /\

    i'll definitely be buying this kit over the all pro one, how long are the bolts, would they work with the all pro expo pack?

    The bolts are 7 3/4 long and the plate is 1/4 inch thick. With standards U Bolts, we normally use the 7.5's for Dakars, AAL's+shims, etc and those are plently long enough. These should be as well but i would measure just to be sure.

    One good feature of this kit is that the ends of the spring plates are bent up. This prevents the edge of the plate putting pressure on the top leaf which can cause the top leaf to crack.

    The easiest way is to just tack weld the bumpstop to the spring plate.

    just another grocery getter

    just curious as to whether anyone could tell me the size of the ubolt used in this kit? Is it 1/2"x3"x7 3/4" or like a 5/8"x3 1/4"x7 3/4"? just curious cuz ive cut my ubolts for a single aal but now looking at getting a 3 leaf aal and would like to know what size i need to buy in order to have them long enough.

    thanks

    Hey guys, I just wanted to pimp Toytec Lifts for their stellar customer service. I ran into a snag with this product and they not only stood behind their product and redevelop but they also went above and beyond to square up my situation. I'm VERY pleased with Toytec Customer Service and will certainly recommend them to everyone. Thanks Toytec
