Fit 35s Under Your Land Cruiser with This New Suspension Kit

The Toyota Land Cruiser has long been one of the most — if not the most — prolific overlanding vehicle on the planet.

Over the years, the Cruisers have softened a bit, as they’ve grown in size. Largely, this has been a good thing. Let’s be honest, the FJ40s were not a super comfortable place to sit for weeks on end.


The latest Land Cruiser offered in the States is the 200 Series. Although undoubtedly capable, from the factory, it has lacked, well, ground clearance, which made it a less appealing overlanding option than other vehicles.

TOTAL CHAOS was keen to change that, though. So, they created a suspension kit that allows 2008 model year and newer 200 Series owners to lift their rig three inches — enough to stuff 35-inch tires underneath the gargantuan Japanese luxury barge.


They started up front by creating new upper and lower control arms. In between those, they stuff King coilover shocks that lift the front end three inches. Then, TC created a set of aluminum skid plates that bolt up to the factory holes.

Out back, the suspension kit continues with chromoly adjustable rear links and King’s adjustable bypass shocks. TC protects those high-performance shocks with some all-new aluminum rear shock reservoir shields.


This is a great start to what could be an incredible Land Cruiser 200 overland build. The kit is on sale now. You can call or email TOTAL CHAOS for pricing on the full kit.
