ICON Leveling Kit
The question of “how much lift do I need?” is answered best by what you intend to do with your newly raised ride. If you’re simply trying to run larger tires, a leveling kit can deliver the up to 2.5” of additional space you need to clear up to 33” all-terrains. Leveling kits are far less expensive than an entire suspension lift and much easier to install. The main limiting factor of a leveling kit is that if you want to go higher than a couple of inches, you’ll need more suspension components to keep your vehicle in proper alignment.
Rancho Complete Lift Kit
If the goal for lifting your ride is greater ground clearance and off-road capability, a suspension lift kit is the way to go. This more costly solution for how high to lift a truck can deliver an overall boost of anywhere from 4” to 6”. And if you’re looking to roll with 35” tires or larger, you’ll need to go 4” or higher. While this may be the more labor intensive and expensive option, a quality lift kit will guarantee every component is raised right – ensuring years of rugged rock-crawling.
Let's Do the Math
The question to ask yourself shouldn’t be “how high CAN I lift my truck?” but “how high SHOULD I lift my truck?” Without the right equipment to steady your suspension, lifting your truck too much can cause premature damage even if you stick to paved paths. So before you boost your ride height, ask yourself what you hope to get out of your new heights. If bigger tires are all you want, a leveling kit can give you the couple of inches you need. But if you’re looking to rule the roughest off-road trails, the up to 6” offered by a suspension lift kit can get you where you need to go. Either way, you can find your brand name suspension upgrade at AutoAnything.
