If you’re a Waco driver looking to get off-road, you’ve probably wondered, “How do I lift my truck?” Depending on the type and intensity of terrain you hope to tackle, your personal style preferences, and your skillset, you may be able to lift your new RAM 1500 or other model a few inches all on your own. Read on below to discover how to lift a truck based on your desired outcome, and soon you’ll be cruising the streets of Woodway from a new vantage point. If you are interested in having our team of factory-trained professionals perform your lift, don’t hesitate to contact our Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, RAM or FIAT service center!

How Do I Lift My Truck: Body or Suspension?

You can lift your truck however many inches you please, as long as you adhere to your state’s vehicle height regulations. How to lift a truck becomes easier with a lift kit, within which will have all your installation instructions. See how to lift a truck depending on your budget and overall goal, based on the options below:

Body Lifts: Body lifts are a simple and the most affordable way to add 1-3 inches of clearance to your ride so you can go further off-road in Temple. Since body lifts don’t change your truck’s suspension or steering geometry, it’s less risky to perform on your own. With a body lift, your cab and bed are raised from the frame allowing more space for new, bigger off-roading tires.

Suspension Lifts: A suspension lift is more intensive, but the benefit is some serious inches of lift. You can technically take your vehicle as high as you want (as long as you mind state regulations and consider your safety). While learning how to lift a truck with a body lift kit is simpler and lower risk, a full suspension lift job should be done by a trained professional. Suspension lifts change your truck’s center of gravity and it needs to be done properly to ensure your safety when you’re crawling rocks beyond Gatesville.
