    Some people talk about "Buyers Remorse", EXAMPLE when not willing to wait for an OR (which isn't available and has long lead time) and get another model they didn't really want...

    Mine is, "Add-on remorse"...lol! Making a purchase and trying to keep the price within a certain threshold...then learning the best time to do the add-on is when negotiating it during sale.

    I don't buy New vehicles often (because I expect them to last until the loan is paid off/with regular scheduled MX of course) so my focus is staying within a budget.

    Live and learn...or forget the next time around...lol!

    Thanks for the advice.

    Those, TRD shocks, were made by Bilstein just like the factory TRD Bilstein shocks.

    The 6112/5160 Bilstein dampeners with Bilstein coils and the included remote ressy's are infinitely better for ~$1200-$1300. You just need to install them yourself or pay someone to put them on. Lift height is similar.

    OMG.... Yes, I did the same thing. My brand new 1992 Toyota 4X4 truck was sold after 14 years, then our 2003 Pathfinder lasted 15 years. So I was a little naive going into the process purchasing our 2020 with dealer installed ad-on's. Rough estimate I could have probably saved about $500.00 CDN. However, after 14 months of ownership I'm still smiling while enjoying the new truck.

    I called my local dealer today and they said they would not install this kit. I was looking to purchase since it is on sale for $1,055. They referred me to outside shops. Anyone else experience this?

    I can't say I have that problem.

    The dealership I bought my truck from (Maryland) quoted me roughly $2,600 + Tax and Shop Supplies. (Same location quoted $4K/OEM LEDs headlights, total install)

    I called around here in Delaware...in Wilmington, I was quoted $2400 and no taxes.

    Then I went to Toyota dealership here in Dover and surprisingly got the best deal: $1450 for kit + $720 Labor, total $2,170.

    This Toyota clerk & Maintenance Lead told me this location has not done the install on anyone's Tacoma either...it would be a first.

    Doesn't bother me that they haven't done the install...it would still be OEM install and not affect my extended warranty.

    Hope you find someplace to do install. It's going to be tough trying to get dealership to install an OEM kit not purchased at their location.

    Odd that a dealer wouldn’t want in on a moneymaking deal like the trd lift kit

    I thought the same thing. Parts guy said order online and schedule a time to have it installed. Transferred to service to get labor rate and they said they don’t do it. At least they were honest and I didn’t pay for it first.

    Holy Moly!

    I thought $2600 was bad…the only thing not included was taxes & shop supplies (whatever that means).

    That’s over $1500 (kit is $1450) for labor…and it’s estimated a 5hr job…and doesn’t include alignment? Absurd.

    If you really want it, start calling different dealerships like I did. I was surprised to find I didn’t have to travel very far to get the best quoted deal.

    Only 3 dealers in the area for me and they have all conspired together (is my thought) as they are all at the same price give or take a few dollars. It may be time for a road trip up your way to get it done ;)

    Anyone who has installed the TRD lift know the part number for just the 2 parking brake cable spacers? I’m hoping I could use these for spacing the cables on my Deaver lift. I’ve seen other solutions elsewhere, but would like to go with oem, depending on price… Thanks.

    My dealer wanted to sell me that kit. That's odd, but also not uncommon. Some dealers won't do stuff like that at all. They don't want to deal with people bringing it in after issues occur. Do they do other lift kits and such? TBH tho, you'll get a better rate from somewhere else 90% of the time.

    I cut those brackets off so they wouldn’t bang around after I did my AAL. Seems fine so far. Hopefully I didn’t do something stupid. Haha.

    Thanks man! I really appreciate the photo with super clear part number. Much good Toyota karma to you. Looks like they’re about $20 each from Toyota. My plan is to tap and bolt these to the Deaver leaf spring clip for what I hope will be a clean solution for managing the parking brake cable after a non-oem lift.

    I’m not seeing this answers here but on the Toyota parts website it states that the TRD Lift cannot be done on the 2022 TRD Sport with M/T.

    can anybody confirm? And can anybody explain why?

    It is normal for the newest model years to not immediately show as “eligible” for prior year add-ons and parts.

    If your question is about whether or not you could install this yourself, I’d say you likely can. Just like how I bet the TRD intake doesn’t say it’s available for the 2022 year model yet even though no real changes happened from 2021-2022.

    I installed the TRD lift shocks on my 2020 DCLB and I don’t think it’s ever been posted it works for my configuration on the Toyota site. Doesn’t mean you can’t do it though.

    If you want the dealer to install and “cover it” then you need to wait.

    Off topic but found these on the FB marketplace for $1,000, wrapped in Good Year Wranglers 265/70/16... worth it?
