Whether you're looking to lift your Jeep to fit larger tires, for better off-road performance or to simply give it a more aggressive look, we have just the right kit for you. With a wide selection from simple poly spacer lift kits all the way up to complete suspension systems with all new control arms, spring, shocks, and all the brackets you need, there's a kit for every budget. In this blog post, we'll cover the most common types of Lift for Jeeps.
Choosing the Lift Type
Before you start shopping for a new lift kit, first decide what your ultimate goal for your Jeep will be. If you're simply looking to fit a larger tire, a simple spacer lift kit will work perfectly for your needs. If you're looking for the best performance both on and off-road, look for either a long-arm suspension kit or one that includes geometry correction brackets for the control arms. For the ultimate off-road performance, look to kits that utilize bypass shocks or coil-overs.
A body lift kit raises the body of your vehicle up a few inches while leaving the suspension and wheels at their original height. This is done by adding spacers over the vehicles' original body mount bushings. This type of lift shouldn't affect your ride quality or handling in any way. This lift is less expensive due to a less strenuous installation, as well as the fact that you may not need to purchase new shocks or a wheel alignment. Vehicles with this lift can still retain the factory suspension geometry and alignment.
This is what our jeep had when we bought it. A spacer lift is an economical way to level your Jeep or give it a small lift. Using polyurethane spacers between the coil springs and the spring perch to give you the desired lift. Spacer lifts are a great way to modify your Jeep to fit slightly larger tires and give some additional ground clearance.
We stock kits that include just the spacers as well as complete kits that include new extended shocks as well as extended bump stops and any other brackets required.
A suspension lift is a modification to a vehicle to raise the ride height. It is done for the purpose of improving the off-road performance of SUVs or trucks and other off-road vehicles, or for cosmetic purposes.
A suspension lift is what our jeep now has. The video above will give you an idea of the components we used. We have a 3" lift on the front and a 2.5" lift on the back. This gives the jeep a level look instead of the nosedive look. In the future, we may increase the lift in the back if we find that we are adding a lot of weight to the back when taking longer trips.
