Fox is very high quality with a known name brand. It is more economical than an ICON kit yet it is still very high quality and handles high speed off-road conditions more than a standard Bilstein/OME Kit. The shocks are re-buildable remote reservoir for superior on and off-road handling and performance.

Front Lift Height: 3″

Rear Lift Height: 1.5-2″

This is the best of the best!


  • (2) Front 880-06-418 extended length front Coilovers with DSC 

Duel Speed Compression (DSC) adjuster provides added control and comfort tuning for on-road use while also offering more aggressive damping for use off-road. The adjuster allows for precise suspension tuning with the simple twist of two clearly defined knobs: No tools and no mess, just a way to easily fine-tune your suspension to best suit your needs in any conditions. The DSC increases both low and high-speed compression levels up to 25%, allowing you to maximize small bump compliance and traction while still having the extra damping required for big hits.

Includes spanner wrench for adjustment.

Tire Size Info:

Q. What size tires can I run on stock wheels with the 3″ kit?
We have not tested every wheel/tire size on these trucks, but 265/75/16 tires are about the largest for the 2005up trucks, on stock wheels. The back spacing, and distance of the tire to suspension components is very close on the front end.

Q. What size tires can I run on a 16×8″ wheel?
With 4″ or 4.5″ back spacing we have several trucks running 285/75/16 tires, but they may rub on the front depending on wheel width, and back spacing. We do not guarantee any tire/ wheel fitment and recommend you have your tire dealer install and “test fit” any wheel tire combination you are considering

  1. 5 out of 5

    Installed this kit on my 2014 Tacoma Double Cab 4x4 on 10/28/15. Everything worked great. No fabrication needed. All bolted right in. Need to give yourself about two days to install if you are a home DIY guy. Great ride on both on and off road.

      A 32'' tires will fit without rubbing, bigger will need some trimming or precise castercamber adjustment may help

      Answered by the admin FOX #985-26-118 carries an aluminum body so it will hold up in those type of conditions. However FOX #880-06-418 carries a steel body, which could be affected by the salted roads. Our recommendation would be to do a little up keep by power washing the underside of your vehicle after a significant storm or salting. This typically decelerates or lowers the chances of developing rust.

      A Using with stock overload gives 0.5'' more then using without stock overload.Also 3rd gen Tacomas will have less lift because they are already lifted from the factory

      A We haven't tested on that vehicle year, but as far as we know it should fit.

      A With 8'' rims and 4.5'' Backspacing you can definitely run 32'' tires with 12'' width.It will depend on your additional weight carried and engine weight.Some customers manage too run 33'' tires with some minor trimming and precise castorcamber adjustment.

      Answered by the admin 2", going above 2" is not advised, since Tacoma 2016-2017 is already lifted 1" from the factory making it 3" total lift with the 2" kit.

      The diff drop kit does lessen the angles on the axles, not a bad addition.
