Archive introduced the original 2.5" kit to mount 2.5" X 12" to 2.5" X 14" travel shocks without cutting the bed. This "under bed" kit allows bolting to bed for less frame stress than other kits, which also allows a crossbar to be fit to lock out the frame rails from rotating inward.

Laser cut from 3/16" HSLA 50,000 psi steel, CNC brake-formed towers for toughness.  Towers are blasted and powder primed for better corrosion resistance in wintery conditions. Axle tabs (included) are 1/4" HSLA for severe use and rock crawling.

Super impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of this piece! Easy and straight forward to install, came with all necessary hardware and looks to be able to take a lot of abuse! I will definitely use this piece on another 1st gen build!!


Well, taken me awhile to get around to typing this up but thought I'd throw a little review up for Eric's shock relocate for the tacomas.

I was part of the original batch made about 6 months ago so had plenty of time to test it out. It's been combined with two different front suspensions and been through quite a variety of conditions. As the setup currently sits however, the rear is the shock relocate with 14" King adjustable resis and a modified OME Dakar pack also with Archive shackle flip paired to a baja kits LT front.

Concerning the install I personally did not do it. With the amount of welding required for the towers and the mount tabs I had a shop do it that does fab work. According to them install was very straightforward and everything lined up perfectly. I also had them go ahead and do the bed crossbar for support or which they did a chromoly bar with heim ends to allow the mounts to flex with the frame. The only figment issue I ran into was actually a hair of rubbing on tires. When the rear flexes out the tires rub the shocks slightly. Something to watch for... I have SCS Stealth 6's 17x9 with -35BS and 285/70/R17 for reference.

The performance has been exceptional so far. Mounts haven't budged and have taken some serious abuse both through prerunning and crawling and general abuse. Haven't fully gotten to get the use of the extended shocks yet as I'm waiting on the money to go to deavers and my leaf pack is limiting currently but I did gain travel already from stock location shocks and am very impressed. Between this and the shackle flip the amount of increased travel and gained droop is more than noticeable. Unfortunately haven't taken measurements for before and after but it is quite a bit even with the current leaves.

Very happy with all of Eric's products I have and he has been super helpful answering questions and helping decide on variations of his products. Would recommend him to anyone. Looking to get some more of his stuff here soon.

Thanks again Eric!

These are top of the line, well built and purpose driven relocation towers, with tons of abuse off road by many Tacoma owners. Who doesn't want more flex and sexy ass parts. I could not be happier with how these function and look. Put your order in toady, you will not be disappointed.
