Suzuki and Toyota off-road enthusiasts – if you live in or near Provo, UT – or if you’re looking for an excuse to go to Provo (and really, who isn’t?), then mark Saturday, September 10th, 2011 on your calendar for the 2nd annual Low Range Off-Road Show ‘n Shine & Swap Meet.
A few months ago we reviewed a Tundra lift kit offered by Low Range Off-Road, and we gave it very high marks. The Low Range kit is made using rust-proof, light weight CNC machined aluminum (far superior to powder-coated steel kits offered by many others), the instructions are excellent (the best we’ve ever seen), and the design is well conceived. Unlike many kit manufacturers, Low Range took the extra steps (using metric bolts just like Toyota does, maching a very slight 3.5 degree taper on the rear blocks, etc.) to make this kit stand out.
In fact, we recommend the Low Range kit right alongside the Tundra lift kit from ToyTec. The only difference between the two kits is their basic design – ToyTec favors an in-coil spacer lift design, and Low Range favors an above-coil lift design.
Low Range recently made a couple of updates to their lift kit for the 2007-and-up Tundra, further demonstrating their commitment to providing a top-notch kit. Here’s what they’ve done:
Low Range Off Road, based in Utah, recently began offering a 3″ leveling lift kit for the 07+ Tundra. This is in addition to offering lift kits for the older body style Tundra, the Tacoma, the FJ, and soon the Land Cruiser. Their kit is very similar to the Truxxx 3″ lift kit we reviewed a few months ago – they both lift the front of the truck 3″ and then level it out by adding a 1″ block in the back. The Low Range Off Road kit is easy to install, high quality, and for reasons we’ll dive into further, we recommend the Low Range Off Road 3″ lift kit over the Truxxx 3″ lift kit.

Starting with the kit itself, we were amazed at the parts quality.
