ProRYDE has been offering lift and leveling kits for pickups and SUVs for a number of years now. Based out of Minnesota, ProRYDE has recently been working to expand its offerings for Toyota vehicles, recently adding a 4Runner lift kit to its already existing 2007 – 2011 Toyota Tundra kit. A Toyota Tacoma lift is also on the way, although there is as of yet no timetable dictating when that product will hit the market.
How Much Lift?
The ProRYDE Tundra kit is intended to allow a fully adjustable front end lift of between 2 and 3-inches, although some owners have been able to see a range of 1.5 to 3.5 inches of adjustment after installation.
A coilover system is one of the most cost-effective ways to upgrade the suspension on your Tundra. Fox Racing has come out with a set of coilover replacements that can tighten up the front end of your pickup for driving over rough terrain and which don’t require any special modifications to install.
The Fox Racing 2.5 coilovers make use of Eibach springs and come with all of the necessary hardware for installation. The nitrogen shocks are pressurized to 200 psi, and they can be tuned on the truck. Out of the box, they offer 2.5-inches of lift (hence the name) over the front wheels. The coilovers make extensive use of billet aluminum and really look great once installed.
Pure Performance builds off-road suspension systems for a wide range of different applications, including the Toyota Tundra. One of the most interesting products offered to Tundra owners by the company is its 4.5” Triple Threat System, a comprehensive suspension lift kit that is aimed at hardcore all-terrain driving enthusiasts.
According to Pure Performance, “Triple Threat” refers to the suspension kit’s ability to not only improve the ride of the Tundra but also serve as a rugged trail and sand dune platform. Essentially, the Triple Threat System is designed to dramatically improve the off-road abilities of the Toyota Tundra without compromising precision or comfort when driving to and from the trail.
There are no shortage of lift kit options for the Toyota Tundra. The Tundra – like most Toyotas – is quite popular amongst off-roaders and those who just like the look of a lifted truck. Not all lift kits are created equal, however, which is why we take notice when one comes along that claims to be the “only complete kit on the market.” When you see that kind of claim, it makes sense to investigate.
While the ReadyLift 3.0-inch SST Suspension Lift System for the 2007-2010 Tundra is NOT the “only” complete lift kit on the market, it certainly does seem as though ReadyLift has thought of everything.
There are a number of people who buy a Toyota Tundra because they want a truck that combines excellent day to day utility and driving comfort with the ability to head off-road on the weekends and have some fun. As with all types of motor sports, after you have been off-road more than a few times you start to get a hankering for some extra performance from your pickup. This can mean picking up bigger tires, installing a lift kit or maybe an additional skid plate to keep things protected down below.
Sometimes, however, you get bitten hard by the rock climbing or desert racing bug and you want to make a more extreme modification to your pickup that will not only help you stand out from the crowd but will also give you a healthy dollop of extra abilities out on the trail. This is where Total Chaos Fabrication steps in.
