Lifted Trucks – Ennis, TX

Pickup trucks offer different levels of functionality and performance for different drivers – that flexibility and power is what a lot of people love about trucks. Customization and accessories for trucks go beyond what the manufacturer offers on brand new models, however, giving truck drivers even more freedom to make their pickups their own. Lifted trucks not only offer a unique appearance but also provide practical benefits, particularly for drivers who like to go off-road with their pickups and tackle serious trails.

Knowing the right kind of lift for your truck and how to make it exactly what you need is not always easy, however. There are a lot of different options available, and two common ways for a truck to be lifted – not to mention numerous manufacturers that make lift kits for pickup trucks. With so many options available to you, the best way to make sure you find lifted trucks that work for what you need is through a knowledgeable and experienced dealer that specializes in these kinds of vehicles. At Frank Kent CDJR, we have used lifted trucks for sale, and our expert service staff can install lift kits into one of our new or used pickups for you.

Lifted Trucks – Form and Function

If you have never really thought much about lifted trucks before, then you might wonder why you would ever want a truck lifted up in the first place. That is a reasonable question, and also a simple one to answer. A lifted truck can provide you with greater ground clearance beneath your truck, even if you choose a simple lift kit, which can help you with going off-road with your pickup. More elaborate lift kits not only raise the body of your truck up but can also increase the clearance of your truck’s frame and let you put bigger tires on your pickup.

There are two different ways that lift kits are designed, which dictates how they are installed and each one lifts the truck in a different way. To understand how they work, however, first, you need to understand how pickup trucks are designed and constructed. For the most part, trucks are made with “body over frame” construction, which means that there is a basic metal frame for the truck and then the body of the truck is placed onto that frame and attached.

Two Ways to Lift a Truck

A lot of lifted trucks utilize a “body lift kit,” which is quite common and generally the simplest type of lift kit to install on a truck. Simple does not mean you should try to install this kind of lift kit yourself, however, unless you have a lot of experience with working on truck frames and bodies and the right equipment to do it safely. A body lift kit is installed by removing the body of a truck from its frame and installing blocks or spacers between the two, then reattaching the body to the frame. The blocks raise the body from the frame, creating the lift that you see.

These kinds of lift kits are popular because no work is necessary to adjust the suspension or other mechanical systems on the truck. Body lift kits are also typically the least expensive option when looking to lift a truck; however, a gap is created by the spacer between the body and frame. Gap guards are used to fill in this area and make these lifted trucks look better. Keep in mind that body lifting can only raise vehicles from 1 to 3 inches total, which means you cannot get a huge lift from these kits.

“Suspension lift kits” are the other popular choice when setting up lifted trucks. Rather than installing between the body and frame, these kits are used to physically increase the height of the suspension for the pickup, which raises the body and frame. This type of lift is more expensive than a body lift and requires making changes to the mechanical system or suspension of the truck. These changes can actually improve the handling of a pickup, however, and there is no limit, beyond a practical one, to how much lift this kind of kit can give a truck.
