    Toytec 3/1 Boss SPC UCAs JL Audio upgrade Dirty Deeds budget dumped 35s
    Thinking about picking up the toytec boss 3" system for my ride.
    I don't think I've ever heard a bad word spoken about toytec but I'm just wondering if anyone here has first hand experience with that particular system..?
    I'm just looking at the lift the way it's advertised, not upgrading any of the parts in the shopping cart, unless anyone has any recommendations for whatever reason....

    Also, I'm gonna put 35s on after I get it lifted. Probably the nitto grapplers. Anybody know of any discounted tire sites on the ol' interweb?
    No matter where I look the grapplers are always about 340/tire.
    Which is fine, but if I can find them for less...

    No complaints about @ToyTec Lifts lifts. I have the boss kit and upgraded UCAs and used shackles instead of blocks. No issues whatsoever. Customer service is top notch and you won't be disappointed. I also have 35s but running BFGs. Check out my hood thread if needed. Good luck.

    I run the BOSS kit cranked at 3.5" on 35" tires. No problems here. Customer service has been top notch.

    How is the 3"lift Boss kit on the HWY vs stock set up. About the same or is there a loss of comfort level with the kit? Thanks. D

    I have installed a couple BOSS setups on Tacoma trucks with excellent results. In the rare occasion that my wife wanted a lift on her Tacoma, this would be in my top three shocks to consider.

    I ran the Toytec Boss for 2 years and loved it. Much better than the bilstein 5100s in my opinion. Great on and off-road.

    if the BOSS' are much improved from the 5100 how would you compare your move to the radflows? Is the ride just as drastic? Still haven't decided between Boss' or Rads. ATM I'm leaning towards the BOSS to save some coin but that can change in a quickness lol

    The radflos were a big jump up as well. Absolutely love the 2.5 radflos. Soak up even more than the boss did on the road. Highly recommend if you want to spend the extra.

    3/1 Boss is a decent lift. Makes sure you decide if you want 650# coils or 700# coils. If you ever plan to do a winch and/or custom front bumper get the 700# coils. You will be happy with the Boss lift, careful not to invest your life savings in a fast depreciating asset. Tundras are great trucks, but after market products do not increase the resale value. If your keeping it till the wheels fall off good on you.
    Buy land. FWIW...

    At some point I'm going to upgrade my OME's to Radflos when money tree improves. So many ToyTec crew members are running Radflos on their rigs for a good reason. I tend to eventually do as the Roman's do....(Except lose the entire empire while doing it.....)

    We have found that the 650 coil springs are a little to light of a spring for the Tundra's. You would have to pre-load the coil more than the 700 lb springs to get the lift you are wanting... The 700 lb springs will provide great lift and ride quality overall with less pre-load on the spring.

    I installed the toytec boss kit with TC UCAS and rear shackles at top setting. Great ride no complaints no regrets. Highway ride is much smoother. I noticed rebound on the front shocks are a little bit harder but I think it is due to the 700 lb spring. Nothing bad though. Absorbs speed bumps real good and cornering is improved.

    The Boss and Rad Flo's are priced more for good reason. Haven't seen anyone here lose their BOSS/RadFlo setups and revert to Bilstein.

    6112’s are allegedly re-buildable. However, we/I don’t know of anyone who has done this yet.
