Like many other great success stories, Doug Gosh started Toytec as a part time gig in his garage. Today his company occupies thousands of square feet of warehouse space in Northglenn, Colorado and ships well over 300 packages full of custom lift kits, parts, and accessories every day.

Toytec has been a part of our extended family since 2008, when we started FJC Magazine. In fact they were our very first advertiser and have supported our efforts in nearly every issue (January 2008 being the only exception). We’ve tested prototype parts, spent time with Doug and Sarah at events around the country, and have come to call the entire Toytec family our friends. I figured it was high time we show off a little about what Toytec does to keep thousands of Toyota enthusiasts fully modded up and ready for adventure.

The unassuming building in an industrial park still includes the original small sign from when Toytec moved in eight years ago. Inside, thousands of lift kit parts and accessories are waiting to be transformed into Toytec Lifts. While Toytec’s original lift kits used mostly off the shelf components, today the Toytec BOSS kits are custom designed by Doug and his team to exact specifications. Each kit is assembled right in the warehouse by skilled technicians, professionally boxed, and shipped to your door.

Toytecs custom shocks and springs are designed and tested in the rocky terrain all over Colorado before they’re included in any kit. Each piece of aluminum in a Toytec Lift Kit is machined by one of several shops right in Northglenn, and only the best hardware is used during the assembly process. While bare aluminum is most popular, Toytec sells kits components in black, red, and blue aluminum as well.

Thinking of building your own coilovers? Unless you have access to an industrial spring compressor, save yourself some time and frustration by getting a pre-built setup. Technicians for Toytec build hundreds of coilovers every day so they’re experts at making sure they’re setup perfectly.

Old Man Emu, Bilstein, Radflo, Eibach, and Icon Vehicle Dynamics are just some of the brands Toytec stocks to ensure you get the exact lift kit you want. Most kits are fully customizable via their website at and you can always call their technicians for expert advice on the perfect setup.

I asked Doug how he managed to build one of the largest Toyota Lift Kit companies from the ground up, and his answer was very simple: contestant contact. Doug and his team answer hundreds of e-mails, phone calls, and support questions every day, and their very active on most Toyota online forums as well as social networks. Doug has always maintained that if he stands behind his product and gives great support, the rest will fall in to place.

While Toytec doesn’t install lifts at their location, they have dealers around the country (and the world) so most people can find an installer nearby. Many Toyota dealerships choose to install Toytec lifts on their inventory vehicles, so you can get dealer-backed service for your Toytec lift. Their brand-new website even shows a handy map of dealer locations for easy reference.

For the third year, Toytec will be at SEMA show in Las Vegas this November. This year they’re stepping things up a notch: they’ll be in booth #36125 with the all-new 2014 Toytec Tundra. This supercharged beast on 35” tires includes plenty of RIGID LED Lighting and of course the epic Toytec BOSS Tundra Kit. Look for more coverage of this awesome truck in future issues of TCT Magazine.

Toytec Lifts continues to grow by keeping it simple. They take care of their customers and provide a level of personal attention not found in many manufacturers. Doug & his team are standing by ready to help you find the perfect lift kit and other accessories for your Toyota Cruiser, Truck, or SUV.
