TRD Pro or King Oem

I have a limited CM on order and scheduled to be built on April 17. I have narrowed my suspension choices down to theses two and my question concerns warranty coverage. If I go with the trd suspension it is my understanding it will be covered under warranty for the full 3 years if I have it installed prior to taking delivery from the dealer. Is this enough incentive to sway that direction? I am not looking for max lift but more a capable suspension with good ride quality. I will also be installing 275/70/18 nitto ridge grapplers at the same time. I live fairly close to Moab and Silverton, Colorado so moderate trails are a possibility and I will use the truck for hunting in the southwest in the fall. Thanks and I am open to other suggestions as well.

If warranty is your concern then the pro suspension will ease your mind. However they are not rebuildable. Youll be a lucky muldoon to get 30k miles out of them.

If capability and reliability is your concern then fox will be your go to.

Go with the TRD pro suspension. It's specifically tuned for 4x4 DC and Crewmax. You'll love the quality of ride. Since the debut of TRD Pro Tundras, I haven't seen a post on these shocks failing or leaking.

While the TRD pro suspension is good, King is king. Rebuildable, lifetime I believe warranty. And if you a comparison dollar for dollar you get more with King. Filthy Motorsports has a comparison video that goes in depth

Did you rebuild them or got rid of them? how is the ride for real on and off road?

Did you know that Tundras were made in America?

I think they're supposed to be good for 50k. But they are fully rebuildable. Sorry but stock shocks don't last very long. Shocks are one of those things most people overlook.

The pro shocks are not rebuildable at all.

With moderate trails being a possibility and not an everyday occurrence, I'd say go with the pro. At the very least I would try and take one for a drive. I know they're hard to find in some areas but it seems like my local dealer always has one on the lot. I couldn't be happier with mine. It's my daily driver and occasionally sees trails but more often it sees the beach. I would love to have access to the trails you have in your area, not getting that in NJ. As far as getting 30k out of them, I haven't heard of anyone having that experience yet. Not that it can't happen but I really don't think that will be your experience with what you've said you plan on doing with it

100% on road youll see higher mileage for sure. Even king and fox shocks need to be rebuilt every 30k miles, you might be able to squeeze 50k but i guarantee those last 10k miles will be crappy. I just rebuilt raptor shocks that had 110k on them, they had only half the oil needed and zero nitrogen. Coilovers including the Bilstein pro shocks need tlc, there is no way around it.

Thank you for all of the feedback. I'm still undecided but going to meet with the dealer again this week. They are dealers for for King, fox, icon, ome, etc. unfortunately there are no pros anywhere within 300 miles of me to test drive. The dealer has a truck on the lot that they did with ome and spacers with 295/70/18 but that's more of a lift than I want and I don't think the ride will compare to what I'm considering.

What about resale? Will the trd pro hold better resale being a Toyota product to the general public? This is my first tundra from 30 years of GM products the last 3 being duramax 2500s so I'm hoping to keep this long term but in the event I don't like it I want to make a wise decision with the mods I make.
