G'day all,

Just thought I'd let you know for those that don't that Snake Racing has an ADR legal 4" lift kit available for the new series hilux. They say it costs $3,100 and will comfortably fit 33" tyres on it, what width thou i don't know.

Don't suppose anyone else has got pics of the new lux with a 'descent' lift on it?

thanks

I might be wrong here but 33s on a new Lux that would be illegal seeing as standard size is 29" that a 4" gain which takes the overall lift to 8", 2" above legal, and that includes the new laws, so when they come in something has to go 2" of lift or smaller tyres.

So it would be in your best interest to go with a 2" body, 2" suspension and 2" in tyres to 31s, all up 6" lift could even work out cheaper.

Baz.

Had a look at the snake racing kit. Don’t get me wrong drive a new lux and am looking at more lift, but what the point of this system I might be wrong but it seems only to get you whatever extra size the tyres give you as the sump guards and suspension arms are still in the same place? At over 3 grand for 1 inch lift, I already run 31 inch tyre that don’t rub at all and am going to put on 265/75r16s or 33/10.5 inch tyres.

Not that mechanically minded as some but why not just put in a 1 inch lift blocks to raise the cabin if you what to put on larger tyres?

G'day hound,

31"tyres dont rub on the new lux with stock suspension but with 265/75x16 it would depend on what brand of tyre you fit as the total diameters vary between manufacturers. ARB's hilux has the 35mm front lift if I remember correctly and they run 265/75x16's and a mate of mine inquired about that for his car and they said that they rub with the suspension lift under certain off-road situations because as you can find out with the BFG website, the 265/75x16's overall diameter equates to 32" even. And vecause the new hilux's cards not being that 'wide' if looking from the side (i.e. the distance front the front of the guard to the back of the front guard, it doesnt allow you to fitwide tyres.

The snake racing kit promotes 33" tyres but they are only 33/10.5x15 BFG tyres because BFG is the only ones that make this size and its good marketing to say your kit fits 33's. This 33" tyre is actually 11.2"wide. I agree with you, for the cost it aint worth it.

As for putting in a body lift, nobody will now fit a bodylift to a vehicle with airbags on it because of some sort of incident that hapopend last year where a 4x4 was involved in an accident that had a bodylift and airbags and the airbags didnt go off and it was found the bodylift affected the activation sensors somehow. So companies dont want to get sued now for fitting lift blocks to airbag equipped trucks.

Hope I helped,
