The Cost of Lift Kits

How much does it cost to lift a truck? That depends on the lift kit you go with. The most affordable options, leveling kits and body kits range from $100-$500. These lift kits are mostly for show. If you’re looking to enhance your truck’s performance and off-road capability, you’ll need a suspension lift kit, which will cost you between $1,000 and $5,000.

Cost of Installation

When asking “how much is it to lift a truck?” you have to consider labor too. The time it takes to install your kit ranges from between 7 and 15 hours, depending upon how extensive your set up is, and of course, Marysville drivers will save a lot if they can install it themselves. For 99% of truck drivers, we recommend that you leave this job to the mechanics at Moran Blue Water Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram. We can’t give you an accurate estimate out of the air, but if you bring in your truck, we’ll give you a quote before we do any work.

Lift Kits vs. Levelling Kits

How much is it to lift a truck? That depends upon whether you choose a leveling or lift kit:

Leveling Kits

Leveling kits even out the differences in your suspensions. You can only lift your truck by 1 or 2 inches, so they’re relatively easy to install, but only provide a small boost. They’re most useful when you regularly have to deploy a heavy accessory like a winch that’s weighing down one end of your truck.

Lift Kits

Lift kits come in 2 types: smaller kits that boost your truck by 2 to 5 inches, and larger versions that boost your truck by 6 inches or more. Lift kits allow for much greater off-road capability and a steady drive feel. They also look great. That said, they cost more than a leveling kit.

Body Lifts vs. Suspension Lifts

If you’ve settled on a lift kit, you’ll have to decide between a body lift or a suspension lift. The body lift raises the actual vehicle body up, making room for larger tires without altering your vehicle. Suspension lifts are more extreme and require alterations to the original parts of your vehicle, but they’re used for much more dramatic lifting.
