How Much Does it Cost to Lift a Truck?

Lifted Truck

If you are looking to enhance the appearance of your truck or you want to boost its off-road capability, you may have considered a lift kit. How much does a lift kit cost? The cost of installing a lift kit can vary widely for several reasons. So, how much is it to lift a truck? Butler Auto Group has provided a general cost guide, but you will need to contact one of our dealerships for more specific information.

The Cost of Lift Kits

How much does it cost to lift a truck? The price varies based on the type of kit you select. Leveling kits and body kits are your most affordable option. They can cost as little as $100 to $500. If you are interested in a suspension lift kit, the version preferred by performance enthusiasts, the costs associated with that option are significantly more expensive. These extensive upgrades can cost as much as $1,000 and $5,000. The price fluctuates based on what you are looking to achieve.

The amount of time it takes to install your preferred kit is the main factor in determining the cost of installation. Since installation time can range between seven (for basic setups) and fifteen hours (for extensive modifications), you can save quite a bit of money if you are able to install the kit yourself. If you don’t have the necessary tools for installation, it may be more beneficial and cost-effective to leave the installation to the professionals. To get an estimate of the cost, do not hesitate to contact us.

Choose Your Setup: Lift Kits vs. Levelling Kits

Drivers concerned about the cost to lift a truck may be weighing their options. This includes deciding between lift kits vs. leveling kits. Which is the best option for you? See what sets the two choices apart:

Leveling Kits

Leveling kits are designed to even out differences in your truck suspension, but since you can use these kits to increase the height of your truck by one to two inches, they’re often used as lift kits by drivers who only need a small boost. If this sounds like the best choice for you, contact our parts department.

Lift Kits

Proper lift kits can be divided into two categories: smaller versions that raise the truck by two to five inches, and larger versions, which raise the truck by six inches or more. With a lift kit, you can make more significant changes to your truck, making it a better choice if you plan to do a lot of off-roading. Keep in mind that when compared to leveling kits, you could be spending a lot more. However, if the appearance offered by a lift kit is important to you, it may be worth the extra cost.

Body Lifts vs. Suspension Lifts

If you have chosen a lift kit rather than a levelling kit, you still need to decide whether you want a body lift of a suspension lift. All that a body lift does is raise the body of your vehicle. This will give you more room if you want to add larger tires, but it won’t affect the basic structure of your pickup. Suspension lifts are usually larger and more extreme, and significant changes will have to be made to your vehicle. That is why it is best to opt for OEM parts vs. aftermarket alternatives.

Why Should You Pay the Cost to Lift a Truck?

For some drivers, the benefits they’ll receive for the cost of lifting their truck are more or less self-evident. If you’re not quite sure if the investment is right for you, don’t let the decision stress you out. Here are some of the reasons we hear most often from our friends and neighbors:

  1. A lift kit allows for superior ground clearance, better shock absorbers, and bigger tires with improved traction. A lift kit is basically a necessity for the most serious off-roaders.
  2. Lifting a truck gives it a more unique and aggressive appearance.
  3. Even if you don’t go off-road, a lift kit can actually help to improve your truck’s performance. In addition to improved ride quality, a lift kit could even help to improve your MPG!
  4. With superior suspension, the miles you put on your odometer will generate a smaller amount of wear and tear. This translates to lower maintenance costs and, generally, higher resale values.
