Durobump Bump Stops for Third-Gen Tacoma

Softening the suspension bottoming blows.

Any 4x4s suspension is made of a series of components that must work together for the system to last. The days of changing one part to gain additional lift without addressing the other components of the suspension should be firmly in the past, but still folks often overlook changing bump stops when they add suspension lift or modifications.

The bump stop in a suspension has a pretty simple job. Its job is a last line of defense against suspension parts or axles crashing into frame components, which can clearly cause damage to both. When it came time for us to modify our 2020 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab 4x4 SR, we talked to our friend Jason Huss at Toytec Lifts, and he recommended front and rear Durobump bumpstops for our Taco.

These bump stops are easy to install (especially the rears when combined with a U-bolt Flip Kit from Toytec). They are constructed out of premium rubber, manufactured and CAD designed right here in the USA (Arizona to be exact). Also, the company has vehicle specific applications for Toyota 4Runner, Tacoma, Tundra, Land Cruiser, and Lexus with more makes and models coming soon. The installation was simple and took just a few minutes.

These are the front Durobump bump stops from Toytec Lifts. Installing them is as simple as pie. They come with two bump stops, one for each side, two bolts (one per side), some red thread-locking compound, and a sticker.
This shows the factory bump stop (left) and the Durobump front bump stop. The factory bump is dense and hard, and although it does a job, we can tell that the Durobump will absorb shock better and give more support over a longer distance of wheel travel. That means a more progressive suspension stop on bottoming.
Here is the front Durobump in its factory bump mounting location. The Durobump looks factory and is made of durable rubber that we can tell will last despite the hits that we know are coming.
The rear Durobump bump stops we installed on our 2020 third-gen Tacoma came as part of a Durobump U-bolt flip kit. This kit helps get us a bit more ground clearance under the leaf springs. The Durobump units bolt to the new top plate with supplied hardware and a supplied hex wrench.
Here are the Durobumps next to one of the factory Tacoma bump stops. The Durobumps are longer but don't limit up-travel as they compress uniformly and predictably when the suspension bottoms.
Installation of this style of Durobump with their U-bolt flip kit is simple and easy. You gain better bump control and about an inch and a half of ground clearance under each rear leaf spring. That's a win-win of an upgrade in our book.
