Those who have installed this kit, can I ask you how much lift you gained at the highest point of your roof rack? If the rear springs are a 2" lift, and the fronts go up about 3.5" to level the truck, what does that equate to at the roof rack? 2"?

I am sitting at 2.25" clearance above my rack in my garage right now, and I'm unclear as to whether this lift kit will fit or not. If anyone has any before and after measurements at their highest point, I would love to know. Thanks!

My garage has an 84" opening and I am about a 1/2in clearance at the highest point of my factory rack with D rated 285's. Kept ToyTec's factory settings on front coil overs.

Yea, that looks like a no for me. So I can either get a lower roof rack for yet another $1400, or I can get a shorter lift for now.

Dont know if this helps, but the Toytecs are adjustable on the front coilovers. Not sure if they will help the rear. I thought the rears were 2" springs, so maybe.



Good Luck

Re: ToyTec Rocks! 3" Lift installed on 2011 FJ

Opps. I posted a thread on screwing up my install. I will keep the story short. backing up in a P-lot, heard some pop/bang sound. Drove forward and heard "pop, pop" stopped in the middle of the lot, got out, noticed my passenger front tire was bent inward towards the wheel well from the top. Somewhere while driving around, the nut that holds the large bolt in the UCA's came off. In the process the bolt backed out while in the p-lot. Causeing the lower end of the UCA to move inward towards the engine compartment.
I Want To Stress, This Was My Fault and NO FAULT OF TOYTEC OR LR UCA'S. I did not remember to torque the nut down when I finished totally my fault. I had two friends show up to help me. Got the bolt back in, slowly drove 2 miles home. Friend took me to Toyota I got a Large washer and a nut, put it back on.
I asked the question if anyone knows how much torque to use for the large bolt and nut. I got a answer of 85, sounds right to me. If anyone has any different info, please let me know.
I am such a idiot

Re: ToyTec Rocks! 3" Lift installed on 2011 FJ

Tourqed the nut on the long UCA Bolt to 87 lbs/ft. and the the Large top nut on the UCA to 125 lbs/ft. I used blue lock-tite on the long bolt and nut. Marked the thread with a shapie, to monitor. I will probally keep checking them for a while.

Re: ToyTec Rocks! 3" Lift installed on 2011 FJ

I am going to look into the nylock nuts. But so far, everything is working out great. But I will still look into those.

Thanks
