How Much Does it Cost to Lift a Truck?

2021 RAM 2500 Limited Longhorn
 

Do you want to lift your truck but find yourself asking, “how much is it to lift a truck?” Well, don’t worry, we here at New Carlisle Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram are here to help answer your question. Dayton truck enthusiasts should know that the answer to this question varies on a case-by-case basis as it depends on your truck and which type of lift kit you choose. Thankfully, we can give you a ballpark range on what it would cost to lift a truck at our service center.

The Cost of a Lift Kit

Part of the answer to “how much does it cost to lift a truck” is the cost of the lift kit. There are multiple kinds of lift kits, including:

  • Leveling kits
  • Body kits
  • And Suspension kits

Leveling kits and body kits are the most affordable options and range from $100-$500. These kits are mostly for style. If instead, you want to enhance your truck’s performance or off-road capability, you should consider a suspension lift kit. 

One of these can reduce wear and tear on your truck when you’re off-road and can even improve gas mileage around the Springfield area. The cost of a suspension kit is $1000-$5000. 

The Cost of the Installation 

When you have a lift kit installed, you’ll have to wait between 7-15 hours for the job to be completed. This is because the installation time depends on how extensive the setup is. As you can imagine, with a job that takes this long, Huber Heights truck drivers will save a lot of money if they can perform the installation themselves. 

However, if you aren’t an experienced mechanic, we highly recommend you leave this to the experts at New Carlisle Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram. Since every combination of truck and lift kit is unique, we can’t give you an accurate estimate out of thin air, but if you schedule a service appointment and bring your truck in, we can give you a quote before we do any work. 

Why Pay the Cost to Lift a Truck?

Why you might lift your truck depends on your needs. It’s often an aesthetic or performance decision, and for many drivers, the reasons are self-evident. If you aren’t sure, don’t stress. Here are the most common reasons we hear, and you can decide if they relate to you:

  1. A lift kit allows for superior ground clearance, better shock absorbers, and bigger tires with improved traction. A lift kit is 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 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.
