Types of Lift Kits and the Benefits of Each One

There are a few different reasons that people decide to get a lifted truck, with different advantages for different kinds of lift kits. Here we’ll take a brief look at each:

  • Leveling Lift Kit: This is the most affordable kind of lift kit and is best for those who just want to look bigger on the road, because they only lift the front end and don’t offer a significant enhancement to off-road trail performance.
  • Body Lift Kit: If you’re interested in getting more off-road capabilities but are still on a somewhat limited budget, go the middle ground with a body lift kit, which includes adding spacers between the body and frame to give you more space for off-road tires.
  • Suspension Lift Kit: If money’s not an object and you want to go all out for a kit that lifts both your body and suspension for maximum off-road capabilities, a suspension lift kit is the way to go.

Pros and Cons of Lifted Trucks

In addition to making off-roading easier, truck lifts can give you other advantages like better visibility and easier towing. However, there are some cons to take into consideration, including lower gas mileage, a higher risk of rollover, and the potential of losing warranty coverage under certain circumstances — so definitely do your research before you jump all in.
