Zone Offroad Now Offers Six Inch Lift for Toyota Tacoma




The current generation Tacoma has been around since 2005 and Zone Offroad has just released both four and 6 inch lift kits for all second generation Tacomas. The aftermarket seller has already had a 2.5 inch lift for the Tacoma on the market for some time along with a 5 inch lift for the Tundra.

These kits are designed to allow 4x4 Tacoma owners a reliable, cost-effective option that can handle tires up to 35". These new setups will also work on 2wd PreRunner Tacomas. While some modification to the frame brackets and welding the steering stops this is meant to be reasonably simple to install.

The crossmembers that come in the lift kits are made 1/4" metal that uses the factory setup for mounting the front differential. This means using the quality rubber mounts that came from the Toyota plant in Texas when it rolled off the line. The new crossmembers have relocated the lower control arms which fit perfectly with the new extended-length steering knuckles. These new knuckles are massive compared to the stock parts they replace and being made of iron, they are extremely tough.

By extending the length of the steering knuckles, factory geometry has been maintained. This means driving it on the road feels as close to it did as factory spec as possible while having that awesome off-road lift.

Capping it all of is a full length skid-plate to protect all the mechanicals. Of course the kits features everything you need like bump stop extensions, strut extensions, sway bar relocations, the brackets to relocate your brake lines and of course new shocks. In the rear suspension of the 6" kit there is a lift block to give the clearance needed for those 35 inch tires.

These complete systems include all of the necessary details like bump stop extensions, sway bar relocation, strut extensions, brake line relocation brackets, and choice of Zone Hydro or Nitro rear shocks. A lift block kit is used in the back to give the lift needed to match the front and gain clearance for a 35x12.50 max tire size (6” kits). One thing to remember, is that stock wheels, will no longer be adequate for your Tacoma with the Zone Offroad setup.
While you can get a Zone lift for your FJ Cruiser, it only raises the truck 2.5 inches. Since the FJ Cruiser shares so many parts with the Tacoma, maybe taller lifts will soon be available.
