As soon as your truck leaves the safety of the pavement, the power of lift kits becomes clear. It doesn’t take very much in the way of uneven terrain to put the undercarriage of the average pickup truck in grave danger, and many construction/demolition work sites and other offroad environments are full of these types of hazards. The primary functionality of a body lift kit for trucks added to your truck is to allow you to get where you need to go off the beaten path without worrying about damage to your exhaust system, engine components, and other elements between the truck body and the ground.
Benefits of Lift Kits
If we’re talking about pure functionality, lift kits are designed to give trucks more off-road capability by increasing the space between the vehicle body and the ground, along with all its rocks, debris, and sudden drops that can wreak havoc on the underside of your truck. But lift kits are about more than that–the truth is, they make your truck look awesome! When you pick your truck up from our shop after having a lift kit installed by our seasoned experts, you will absolutely love the way it looks, whether on the road or off it.
Types of Lift Kits
Lifting your truck will look very different depending on your needs. Of course, we’ll need to find out from you just how high you want to go. If you spend lots of time driving across unpredictable terrain on work sites, you may just want a little elevation to keep the undercarriage safe from damage. If you plan to go adventuring over the toughest trails and want to make sure you can keep up with the pack, you’ll probably want more height.
Lift kits are also useful for improving your truck’s towing power–ask our experts about customizing your lift kit to match your needs for towing your boat, camper, trailer, or other vehicles.

Lift Kits for Work
People add truck body lift kits to their vehicles for different reasons. The main reason, however, is to make it safer and easier to take your truck over difficult terrain. By raising the undercarriage of your truck higher from the ground and using reinforced axles and struts, you give yourself the freedom to drive over bumps and ruts, large rocks, and whatever else might be in the way in an off-road environment without worrying about damaging your exhaust pipes and other parts.
How high does your truck need to be lifted? It all depends on your application. Recreational trails, remote work sites, and off-road camping areas all have their own challenges and call for different lift kit specifics.
Lift Kits for Looks
Let’s be honest: not all truck body lift kits are installed as part of an effort to prepare a truck for hard work on unpredictable terrain. Many of us just love the way our truck looks on the road when it’s lifted! We get it, and we’ll help you visualize what your truck will look like with the various options so that you can get the look you want.
And once your lift kit is installed, you’re likely to think of additional modifications that can make your truck look even better, from new rims to a bed liner to an upgraded exhaust system. You can get it all done by experts here at Trucks & Moore.
A leveling kit is similar to a lift kit, in that it modifies the infrastructure of your truck in order to get the body higher off the ground. However, the specific purpose of a leveling kit is to get the front of the truck even with the back of the truck–when they are shipped from the factory, most trucks are higher in the back than they are in the front.
The biggest potential issue to keep in mind is that lift kits can have an impact on your truck’s handling. Because the center of gravity on an already heavy vehicle is raised higher, it becomes harder to safely make tight turns on roadways. Ask us about how you can get your truck looking great the way you want it to while also keeping it safe to drive!
Even if all lifted trucks look the same to you, there are different ways to get a truck high off the ground. Truck body lift kits lift only the actual body of the truck, leaving the suspension in the same position. A suspension lift kit, on the other hand, raises the actual suspension system.
Truck body lift kits are very affordable! You can get the look you have in mind by using a body lift kit to raise your truck a few inches, avoiding the high costs of a full suspension lift kit. If your primary purpose is for aesthetics and you don’t plan to drive over heavy terrain on a regular basis, this is most likely the option you should choose.
The wheels and tires you use with your lift kit are largely up to your preference. If your goals are work related, switching to larger tires will give you more clearance from the ground, giving you even more freedom to drive over rocks and unpredictable surfaces. But if you like the look of your original wheels and tires on your lifted truck, that will work as well.
We are a full service truck shop! From advising you on your modifications to a spray-in bed liner to putting on your new tires, you can get all your needs taken care of here at Trucks & Moore.
