Ways to Lift Your Truck

There are multiple different ways to lift your truck, with each one having its own benefit. However, we’re going to touch on the three most common ways to lift your truck. Whether you’re looking for style or added performance for your Glendale adventures, these are all things to consider when you’re lifting your truck. Let’s take a look at the different types of truck lifts:

Body Lift Kits

Body lifts simply raises the body of your vehicle, allowing for higher ground clearance to make room for bigger wheels and tires. Body lifts don’t necessarily change the suspension of your truck, so in most cases, a body lift is purely for aesthetics. With that being said, the price reflects that, and opting for a body lift is often one of the most inexpensive ways to add some height to your truck.

Leveling Kits

When you take a look at most trucks, you’ll notice that typically the front of the truck is a smidge lower than the rear of the truck. In most cases, this is to compensate for when there’s significant weight in the bed of the truck. If you want to match the height of the front of your truck to the rear, you can do so with a leveling kit.

Leveling kits typically just raise the height of the front of your truck either with a body lift or new suspension. Either way, leveling your truck will generally also be an inexpensive way to add some style to your truck.

Suspension Lift Kits

Finally, you have truck suspension lift kits. This replaces your truck’s suspension to add both height and performance to your truck. If you plan on tackling treacherous terrain around Tempe, you can’t go wrong with a suspension lift kit.

Suspension lift kits also have a wide range of flexibility when it comes to the height you want to lift your truck. While a suspension lift kit is made for performance and capabilities, they are usually one of the most expensive ways to lift your truck, but you do get added form and function.

How Much Does It Cost to Lift a Truck for Labor?

The pricing we’ve gone over to lift a truck is simply for the cost of the lift kit itself. When you’re shopping for a lift kit and not installing it in your own Mesa garage, you’ll also want to consider labor costs. The time it takes to install a lift kit can range anywhere from 7 to 15 hours, so keep this in mind when you’re researching lift kits.

Of course, you can always install the lift kit yourself, but we’d highly recommend you leave it to the professionals as it can be a complicated job. Each lift kit and truck is different, so the cost for labor can vary.
