    Dealer installed lift kit :(
    [Good looking truck, congrats. How much did the dealer charge for the kit/install?

    On the dealer reference guide it mentions the kit is not for DCLB’s,]

    They did knock some off this total price, but way to much for this dealer installed kit plus wheels, tires

    I’ve been watching the updates to this thread since the start and I’m not gonna lie... I’m still pretty confused lmao! I’ve been looking at this as a option for the same reasons most guys have mentioned ie the warranty. The biggest question so far seems to be what’s going on with the sensor up front. Here’s where I’m confused, is that even a issue if I don’t have the 360* camera or the blind spot monitoring system?
    I’ve got a 2021 TRD OR with the manual transmission and a chrome rear bumper and the only camera it appears to have is the rear back up camera. Looking at the dealer spec sheet it doesn’t list anything for a front camera, 360* view or BSM. Looking at the truck there doesn’t appear to be any of the small circular sensors in the back bumper or a separate portion of the front grille that covers a camera. After reviewing the Toyota website for build packages and reading on here my understanding is the BSM’s are on the plastic portions of the rear bumper and if you’ve got a chrome bumper that means you don’t have BSMs.

    If that’s the case and I don’t have a front camera or any BSM sensors that “should” mean I don’t have to worry about getting a new pro grille and front sensor if I don’t want that and I don’t have to worry about anything if I swap my front and rear bumpers out? ie if I go with a HC front bumper with a bull bar it’s not going to mess with the sensor because I don’t have a front camera. Same for the back.

    Forgive me if that’s a rather convoluted question but I’m confused and hope someone has a similar setup in their truck with some insight.

    But you do have the forward looking sensor/camera up by the rear view mirror. That and the TSS sensor needs adjusting/calibration according to Toyota.

    My understanding is that thousands of people have lifted their truck 2-3" (not the oem TRD lift) and have not had calibration done or moved the TSS sensor lower (purpose of the pro grill) and have not had issues. This is not to say that the system is operating at 100% effectiveness. Toyota want/need it to be 100% effective hence the additional grill/sensor & calibration required by them.

    Good looking truck, I have its twin. Great to have an Access cab with a lift to compare to

    Thanks for the quick reply. I can see Toyota wanting to CYA things and the need for it to be 100%. I didn’t even think about the front facing camera by the rear view so thanks for pointing that one out. If that’s the case though then I shouldn’t “need” to get a pro grill or worry about calibrating anything other than the front facing sensor by the rear view correct? And it seems like that’s not a problem based off of the number of guys who get 2-3” lifts without doing anything to that sensor.

    That should also mean I don’t have anything to worry about when I swap bumpers right?

    Disclaimer: I am photographer not a master tech so take what I say with plenty of salt :)

    Plenty of people put a pro grill on with no lift, this would lower the sensor and put it out of spec.

    Plenty of people put bumpers, shells, armor on which would make the car lower and lower the sensor putting it out of spec.

    I too was thinking of this kit because of warranty, but ultimately you need the kit for $1350 & 4-5 hours labor ($600) to make the full setup warranty approved.

    Personally when I get round to doing a small lift I will be installing Bilstein shocks/springs & an extra leaf and doing it myself.

    Do yourself a favor, go measure the stock height of the TSS, make a note and when you've done putting all the gear on take another measure and go from there. If you feel the TSS, Cruise control, PCS is not acting as it should you could then get the system calibrated at that point...

    I also have the 2021 off-road. I bought the whole kit. I didn’t use the new sensor because the idea of the pro grille is to lower the sensor the same amount you raised the truck. So the sensor should be at the same height as before the lift. If I had it to do over I would not have bought the new sensor. All the safety features tied to the sensor seem to work perfect.

    ^^^^^ This ^^^^^^

    I finished my lift and all on Saturday morning. Came out great and drives great. All the systems were working , I think, normally. But it kinda bugged me even though i was not having any issues that it may not be 100%. So, I took it in this morning to have it all recalibrated anyways for my own piece of mind.
    I'm also in aviation so im 100% safety oriented. Not that anyone is going to have or will have problems, It's just a me thing. Took about an hour. No issues.

    Just curious, how much did your dealer charge to to calibrate?

    To be transparent here.......

    I had mentioned in an earlier post that i worked for Toyota for 15 years and still have a great relationship with my former (Employer) Dealer. Having said that,

    I get employee pricing. So to say at this point would be irrelevant. Anyone not in my position (Don't Hate Me ) is going to get charged at least 2 hours at their dealership's rate.

    I know what you mean. I tinted my TSS sensor and questioned if PCS would operate...

    I have a traffic light junction where I swing right via a filter lane at the last minute, but if there is a car stopped at the red light that’s going straight my PCS always triggers because it doesn’t realize I’m going right. I’m happy knowing PCS,CC & LD all work. When I eventually get a lift I will look at getting it calibrated.
