Straight from the factory, the 2024 Toyota Tacoma rolls out with tires capped at 33 inches, perfect for traversing rocky trails or tearing through sandy dunes in the Trailhunter and TRD Pro editions. But what if you’re an SR5 owner eyeing the upgrade to 33s or even 35s without shelling out big bucks? Enter Rough Country and their 3.5-inch lift kit.

However, it’s important to note that this lift kit isn’t compatible with models sporting rear leaf springs or TRD versions equipped with specialized suspensions like the TRD Off-Road or TRD Pro, as well as the Trailhunter with its Old Man Emu suspension.

Priced at $799.95 with free shipping at the time of reporting, the Rough Country lift kit offers a bolt-on solution that requires no drilling or cutting. It includes all necessary hardware, Premium N3 shock absorbers, coil spring spacers, bump stops, sway bar drop brackets, a track bar bracket, a brake line relocation bracket, upper control arms, strut extensions, pre-load spacers, and strut shims.

Rough Country advertises a three to four-hour installation time, assuming proper tools and expertise are on hand. This includes a strut compressor, a jack and jack stands, sockets or combination wrenches ranging from 10 to 36 millimeters and 1/2 to 9/16 inches, a hammer, and pliers. Following installation, it’s essential to perform a steering sweep and align the vehicle.

The kit’s control arms are engineered to maintain optimal ball joint angles, minimizing wear, while durable rubber bushings enhance longevity. The rear track bar bracket is designed to recenter the rear axle and restore the roll center close to factory specifications.

For the 2024 model year, the SR5, with the largest available cab and four-wheel drive, starts at $41,895 for the five-foot bed or $42,395 for the six-foot bed. The i-FORCE MAX hybrid inline-four turbo is available, but starting from the TRD Sport, it is priced at $47,795, including the destination charge.
