Better conformance means an easier ride and less potential damage to the vehicle. You should note that it also means less damage to the environment because the vehicle does not have to bull its way thru the terrain but rather glides over it like a large beetle. When lifting a vehicle, the ride quality becomes stiffer than the factory cushy ride. However, this is complemented by having a better feel for the road or terrain. There are times when the “feel” on particularly tough terrain will be critical for the driver’s safety.

Whether you simply want the “look” or you are a serious rock hopper, you will find what you need at our facility. We can do the complete kit or systems upgrade for you or sell you the components so you can do it yourself. Our experts can also provide estimates and repairs.

Many people lift their vehicles for better off road performance. From hunters and anglers to Police rescue to serious rock hopping enthusiasts, these folks need or want to go where a stock vehicle simply cannot. Technically a lift kit raises the ground clearance below the body of the vehicle. It does not necessarily raise the clearance below the axles. The larger size tires that the lift kit enables provide the extra height below the axle. Lift kits also enable greater articulation of the axle. This only means that the wheels can travel up and down a greater distance. This articulation enables the vehicle to better conform to the terrain.
