This new package is not only TRD-accredited and backed by a manufacturing unit guarantee, but it is thoroughly suitable with the new Toyota Protection Feeling (TSS) tech that has been provided on the Tacoma considering the fact that the 2020 product yr.
The package is suitable with all V6 four-wheel-generate models aside from the very long-mattress crew cab variant and the TRD Pro (which shouldn’t will need just one to commence with). Toyota says it really is great for a two-inch elevate up entrance and about an inch in the rear. The package also comes with a TRD-model grille substitution, which is extra than just an aesthetic upgrade.

You can expect to notice that we did not mention everything about two-wheeld-travel or 4-cylinder products earlier mentioned. Toyota’s announcement explicitly excludes them. We achieved out to check with whether or not there are any options to give an equal package or a independent package deal with just the grille and elements for making a non-manufacturing unit elevate suitable with TSS. We are going to update this article if we listen to back again.
If you’re nevertheless onboard, the package retails for $1,350 (in addition 4 to 5 hrs of labor, Toyota estimates) and is solely readily available as a seller-put in deal, so you probably will never be ready to just order one particular on eBay. It is really backed by a 3-calendar year/36,000-mile warranty on parts if put in ahead of supply, or a 1-12 months/12,000-mile warranty on pieces if installed on a truck that is presently in customer hands.
