BDS Suspension recently announced a new 6″ lift kit for 2005-2012 Toyota Tacoma pickups.

According to BDS, “the steering knuckles are designed to work within the factory traction control constraints and provide stock-like handling characteristics. The knuckles are also considerably more robust in both the mass and strength over the OE components.”

6" Lift KitWhat’s in the box

  • ¼” steel plate built crossmembers
  • Have integrated differential mounts
  • New provided differential mounts
  • Belly Skid Plate

For the rear lift, BDS supplies multiple lift block options with 3” and 4” sizes available as well as longer u-bolts, 5500-series shocks, and all the necessary brake line/wire relocation brackets. This system allows for up to 35×12.50 tires to be installed on 18×9 or 20×9 with 4.5” backspacing.

Can I Install It Myself?

The kit is described as having a 3 out of 5 difficulty rating and should take 6-8 hours. Although you should consider what types of tools and garage setup you will have access to. If you have a lift, a large selection of tools and a decent amount of mechanical knowledge this can be a relatively quick and easy install.

  • 35 x 12.50 w/18 x 9 and 4.5″ Max. back spacing
  • 35 x 12.50 w/20 x 9 and 4.5″ Max. back spacing
