Lifting your truck doesn’t only look cool, but it can also improve off-road performance around Plymouth. However, as you might have already realized, the cost of a lift kit can vary greatly, depending on your unique needs. If you’re wondering how much does it cost to lift a truck, or even how to lift a truck, Cornerstone Plymouth has broken down the basics for you here, but feel free to get in touch for details.

The Cost of Lift Kits

What is the cost to lift a truck? The answer depends on the type of kit you choose. The most affordable options are leveling kits and body kits. They generally are far more affordable than other types and usually run under $500. Minneapolis drivers who want a suspension lift kit can expect to pay significantly more, as they tend to cost at least $1,000 and can be as much as $5,000.

Should You Lift Your Truck Yourself or Hire an Expert?

Similarly, the amount of time it takes to install a lift kit varies greatly depending on the type. Keep in mind that hiring someone around Maple Grove to do it for you will impact how much you spend. Since installation time can range between seven to fifteen hours or more you’ll save a lot of money if you can do it yourself. However, if not done correctly you could do more harm than good. Either way. Cornerstone Plymouth can help with parts or service.

Choose Your Kit Carefully

Minnetonka drivers considering how much it costs have to choose between leveling kits and lift kits. Here’s the difference:

Leveling Kits

Leveling kits are used to even out differences in your truck suspension, often caused by heavy equipment, such as winches. Since a leveling kit can increase the height of a truck by one or two inches, they’re sometimes used instead of lift kits.

Lift Kits

A real lift kit is available in two categories. The smaller versions raise the truck by two to five inches, and the larger versions will raise a truck by six inches or more. Basically, the higher you lift your truck, the more it’s going to cost.

Is it Worth it to Lift Your Truck?

If you’re unsure if the investment to lift your truck is justified, here are some things to consider:

  1. A lift kit significantly improves ground clearance, provides better shock absorbers, and allows for bigger tires, which improves traction.
  2. Even if you don’t go off-road very often, a lift kit can actually help improve your truck’s performance.
  3. With improved suspension, the miles you put on your odometer will cause a smaller amount of wear and tear on your vehicle.
