Why Get a Jeep Lift Kit?

What is a Jeep Lift Kit? While any Jeep model already provides impressive off-road performance, you can enhance that performance with a lift kit. Combining a higher ground clearance with optimized approach angles for steep hills and rocky obstacles, a Jeep Wrangler Lift Kit can enhance your off-road performance with better stabilization near St. Petersburg. Also, some Bradenton drivers want the exterior appearance a Jeep Lift Kit gives their vehicle.

Types of Jeep Lift Kits

Different categories of Jeep Lift Kits, including Jeep Grand Cherokee Lift Kits, do different things to your vehicle. Some of the Jeep Lift Kits are:

  • Body Lift: Simply adding space between the body and frame, a body lift provides 1-3 inches of lift. Soley a cosmetic lift and providing no performance enhancements, the body lift does not affect the suspension and wheel stock.
  • Budget Boost/Coil Spring Spacers: Coil spacers are placed atop the coil springs, typically creating 1.5-2 inches of lift. Minimally invasive on your suspension, coil spacers are similar to the body lift. Get this budget boost to save money and for accommodating larger tires.
  • Coil Lifts: Coil lifts are going to affect your Jeep’s performance. While still coil spring spacers, coil lifts offer 2-3.5 inches of suspension, creating greater off-roading performances.
  • Short Arm Lift Kit: For serious off-roading enhancements, drivers tend to turn to a Short Arm Lift Kit. This Jeep Lift Kit offers coil spring spacers as well as extended front and rear control arms, bigger sway bar links, and shocks, creating 2-6 inches of lift, depending on your selection. Greater ground clearance, wheel travel, and an almost full suspension make this Jeep Lift Kit popular with off-roaders.
  • Long Arm Lift Kit: The Long Arm Lift Kit is the most expensive of the lift kits. They provide outrageous articulation, extreme crawling ability, and even better suspension angles than short arms. However, long arms can get caught in rocks. An option for those serious enthusiasts or hyper-professionals who want a Jeep in its most decked-out state, this Jeep Lift Kit is the priciest you can get, as it requires welding and fabrication.
