    Well that is my thoughts and my logic! since you saying absolutely about marketing and seem pretty sure, are you indicating the FOX pros are superior to Bilsteins pros? or FOX is a Better name then Bilstein? Toyota didint need any price justification in 2015 don't think they need it now! if they did maybe a front locker or ko2/duratracs or even 5.7 V8 that would justify the cost!

    No, I wouldn't necessary say that.
    I do think that the Raptor really changed the game. Toyota is often slow on the uptake but is now trying to keep pace with similar OE upgrades.

    Does anyone know the part number for the Fox TRD Pro kit (front and rear with coil) assuming there is one?

    I would say Fox is a more mainstream name than Bilstein. I used to see people in Fox shirts all the time. I never see anyone in a Bilstein shirt.

    That said I love my Bilsteins and would buy them again.

    Raptor did "change the game" but that is in the past since the new one is a stupid V6 and all aluminium! not sure who though that was a good idea!

    I think the people wearing Fox shirts are mountain bikes fans. Fox does have a good grip on that market. i dont see any people wearing kings or icon shirts!

    Looking for advice, I have a 13 pro and with 78k on the clock and was thinking about replacing the suspension. Trying to figure out if I should buy hunt down a set of TRD Bilstein or just get the Fox TRD?

    My brother in-law has a 18 tundra with Kings and swears by them, he is working his hardest to sell me on them. However, I really like the idea of Factory designed products.

    Any input is much appreciated!

    Cheers.

    Sounds like the Fox Pro shocks should of been standard on the TRD OR.
    Pro should have got something much more.

    If you look at the 2018 specs on the Toyota web site the vehicle height of the Pro is one inch higher than the OR, sport or limited. There for all to see.

    This photo isn't great, but this guy parks his limited right next to me at work sometimes. You can see my pro on the other side of his truck. Standing directly in front you can see the slight difference. It is very slight though.

    Probably more motocross fans than mountain bike fans. I'm a mountain biker and have never seen another mountain biker wear a suspension brand t-shirt unless it's a jersey. I did used to see the fox shirts in pacsun all the time.

    Yep, two different Fox companies. The Fox brand stuff you see people wearing is dirt bike stuff and not mountain bike.

    Yes and no...the Fox brothers have two different companies.

    Fox Racing (Geoff Fox) is a lifestyle brand which is primarily Moto and MTB.
