How Much Does It Cost to Lift a Truck?

2021 Ram 1500 TRX off-roading

If you want to lift a truck, there are quite a few things to consider before planning that off-road adventure. One of the most important questions is, “How much does it cost to lift a truck?” Even though the answer isn’t simple, we’ll walk you through the variables that you’ll need to know to get a ballpark estimate. Learn about the cost to lift a truck, and visit us at Sacramento Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for more information!

Pricing Your Truck Lift Kit

Your total cost to lift a truck depends on the tools you use, and lift kits can vary in price. Leveling kits, the most affordable option, tend to range between $100 to $500 to raise your truck a few inches at most. If you want a more intense lift, you’ll need to look for a suspension lift kit. These kits boost your clearance and off-road capabilities, but they can run between $1,000 and $5,000.

Truck Lift Installation Costs

Picking up your lift kit is only half the battle. Before you can go out on Roseville roads with your new look, you’ll need to arrange the installation of your lift kit. The installation process takes quite a bit of time, between 7 and 15 hours. This will depend on the complexity of your kit and the cost of your service center. While some advanced DIY enthusiasts can handle installing a leveling kit on their own, we highly recommend getting professional help to save yourself time and effort, especially if you want a suspension lift. Bring in your truck to the service center at Sacramento Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, and we’d be happy to give you a quote.

Truck Lift Kits vs. Leveling Kits

Another consideration when pricing your service is what type of kit you want. The cost to lift a truck with a leveling kit is quite a bit less than a more extensive lift kit. Take a look:

  • Leveling kits were created to level your truck suspension, but they can also be used to boost your truck’s height slightly, just a few inches. So if a heavy winch is dragging your car down, a leveling kit might be just what you need.
  • Lift kits provide more dramatic results overall. Smaller versions raise your truck by 2-5 inches, while larger versions provide 6 or more inches of lift. You can also take your pick of a body lift, which creates more space for larger tires, or true suspension lifts, which significantly alter your truck’s original equipment.

Benefits of Lifting Your Truck

  • Off-Road: A lift kit makes extra space for ground clearance, better shock absorbers, larger tires, and more. This makes off-roading even better.
  • Appearance: A lifted truck has a certain style that can’t be found anywhere else.
  • Performance: Lift kits can enhance your ride quality and even boost your fuel economy.
  • Condition: Better suspension means less wear and tear, which translates into great resale value and lower maintenance costs!
