Thanks!!!
I’ve searched and searched to no avail.
Toytec couldn’t offer any suggestions either.
Stock springs are 14” so a 16” spring should give me a couple inches lift?

Technically yes, 2" taller might give you around 3" of lift. But I think that is accomplishing the same thing as just adjusting the preload on the 6112's?

Can 2014 TTUE TRD 6112’s be preloaded to increase lift? I think the later ones could but I didn’t think mine could. I was under the impression that new coil overs, lifting springs or spacers were the only choices I had other than a body lift.

Technically, if they have the same spring rate.

See above^^.

Any spring can give you more lift if you preload them enough. What will suffer will be ride quality, braking distances, early failure of suspension, steering, Axles, and other components, but that's not what you really asked. What exactly are you trying to accomplish besides lifting 3"?

There are many reasons to lift, just curious yours. Also, there's nothing wrong with adding a 1/4" spacer on top of the coilover assembly, which will give you approximately 1/2" at the wheel to compensate. Keep in mind that the higher you go, the more down travel you give up and adding a limiting strap can help the suspension from topping out.

Tired of following a vehicle for miles with its turn signal activated?

All cars should be equipped with a turn signal that doubles its clicking volume after 2 minutes (provides enough time to turn at a light or stop sign). That way the person driving is adequately notified that his/her turn signal needs to be turned off. If after another two minutes the driver still hasn't reacted to the blinker, the car should shutdown the radio and all bluetooth devices, and maybe spray water from the center of the steering wheel.

Rant off.

For some seniors, it's called "an eventual turn." Pretty sure it's a legal maneuver in Florida. :rofl:

What I’m trying to do is lift my 2014 TTUE to get some 305’s under it without rubbing. Plus looks. I’m an old phart so I need to keep the kids thinking I’m cool.

This is doable without 3". BMC and wheel back spacing comes to mind, but there are lots of folks running 305s with minimal lift.

All FJ’s came with rear headrest standard. It’s just that people tend to remove them to avoid the hassle of doing it every time they want to fold down the rear seats. Then they either get lost or forgotten to be put back with the vehicle when it’s sold. So then the next owner gets a used FJ without headrest. But be certain they all came with them originally. 07-10 have the smaller version that all look the same as the center headrest. 11-14 have the two full size folding headrest with the small center. Unfortunately because so many used FJ’s are sold used without them and they’re $600 for a set from the dealer finding a set used below $250 for 07-10 or $350 for 11-14 is near impossible. When you do it’s because the seller either doesn’t care or doesn’t know how valuable they are.

A central tire inflation / deflation system. ie; Hummer
Deflate pressure to go off road then inflate for on road.

Ditto on the telescoping steering wheel. The stock one cramps my hands and obscures the gauge cluster. I’ve been looking for a replacement, but liability and regulations have eliminated that market. That and lack of replacement seats may be the reasons I let her go. Then again, if someone made a drifting kit I could hang with the the tuner youth as they do their rubber tricks and be mega uber cool like them. Ease & comfort be damned!

Rear seat head rests are not a DOT requirement in the US. Only the fronts.
