The kit with the best "Pure Off-Road Prowess Bar None".  This kit is very affordable and it makes the 3rd gen 4Runner extremely capable off road for a very low cost.  We have been building these since 2004.

We are bringing the "Classic" kit back with a very small twist.  It is no longer complete, you must complete it.  What we mean by that is YOU need to purchase the 2 from Bilstein 5100 series front shocks.  It is extremely important that you have a receipt for just the 2 shocks in your name for warranty reasons.

(2)-Bilstein 5100 Series HD Shocks (24-261425)


WE Supply:

Adjustable 1.5"-3.5" Front & 3.5-4.5" Rear. Lift height depends on model year.

4WD Only.

This kit modernizes the 3rd Gen 4Runner. The 4th Gen 4Runner 2003-2009 was 2" higher in the rear than the front to combat sagging. The 5th Gen 4Runner is as well, 2" higher in the rear than the front, like a pickup truck. These vehicles were made by Toyota this way. The 1.2 kit will build a 3rd Gen 4Runner with a rear that is 1.5" higher in the rear for cargo carrying capability without sagging. This kit can be run on a bone stock truck or on a vehicle with custom bumpers. The kit is adjustable without buying new parts to accommodate the changes.

The rear coils are brand new, they are made of a small diameter wire with wide wraps. They will require some time to settle to the final height. All of the data for this lift kit was compiled with springs that had between 40K and 100K miles on them. These coils will hold out for an extremely long time but are tall when brand new, plan on some settling after install. This is not the case with the front coils, those consist of a large diameter wire with tight wraps, they will not change after install. The kits are built to order based on engine and model year.

If your vehicle exceeds the GVWR of a 3rd Gen 4Runner which is 5250 lbs. we do not have a product for you, this kit will not work for you. The curb weight of a 3rd Gen 4Runner is 3600 lbs. Curb Weight and GVWR are not the same thing.

Production time is typically 2-3 weeks depending on volume. Sometimes of the year are busier than others.
