I want to do this stuff (well, I'm in Canada--close enough), but no vendor has the cajones to bother with this platform up here.
Also, if you keep saying nobody wants to off-road mod their Y62s up here, then vendors like predator bar will turn away. Stop saying that!
X2 for another Canuck that wants a mild lift for his truck. You know the interest is there just look at how many views this thread has. Lots of people are interested.
If you are truly serious about lifting your Armada, you know there are 2 companies in the US who offer suspension upgrades for the Armada. You can contact them and get a quote for a lift.
The Armada does not have HBMC. A lot of Patrol do. The Australians who drive Patrols with HBMC are ordering their suspension upgrades from one company in the US. I have contacted them and they sent me a quote and it shows to lift a QX with HBMC, the cost is $6,000 to $10,000 for parts and labor. Trust me, let us be realistic here. This is an American company with zero sales in the US/Canada for suspension upgrade. And to be honest the reason might be the high cost that no one in US/Canada may want to pay for it. But there are some very super rich people out there that money is not a problem for them. Anybody like that can contact them and buy the suspension upgrade for their Armada. If you have a Armada, it means you do not have HBMC and so your lift will be cheaper. But how much? Only you can call and get a quote and share here if you are willing to share that info.
The Australians have A LOT of companies with kits for their Patrol. Let us hope that it fits the Armada or QX, but no one has done it to guarantee fitment. Some of us are guessing it will fit, but there has been no confirmation yet.
This guy with the predator bar told me he is a very busy guy, so his presence on the forum is very limited. But since he has my number, we have been pretty much staying in contact. He has sent me a lot of pictures that I have shared over half of them on this thread. If you PM him and want him to be sending you info, I am sure he will do that. If what you want is a bullbar for the Armada, there is one company in the US making it already and then the other company that can custom build one for you which is in Georgia.
So, if someone has not lifted his Armada or QX, and is seriously looking, there are 2 companies in the US who offer lift kits and 2 other companies who offer the bullbar with winch for the 2017 and up Armada.
So you can try to contact all 4 companies to see if they offer what you may like or want.
All those 4 companies have their names mentioned here and in another thread(s).
