Jeep Lift Kits

New Jeep SUVs are known for being capable off-roaders. But in reality, Jeep SUVs are so much more than that! They’re packed with technology, they’re spacious, and they’re value-driven. If, however, you are searching for a capable off-roading vehicle near Columbia, a Jeep is still a safe bet — especially if you opt for a Jeep lift kit. From Jeep Cherokee lift kits to Jeep Renegade lift kits and more, we offer the lift kits you want! Plus, we’re here to help you understand the differences between different kinds of lift kits. So read on!

Types of Jeep Lift Kits

There are many types of Jeep lift kits for sale from Fayetteville to Lawerenceburg, so you’ll want to make sure you’re choosing one based on how you plan to use your Jeep and how much you want to spend. Thinking about how much you want to modify your Jeep is also important to keep in mind. With that said, here are the main types of Jeep lift kits along with an overview of what each one offers:

Body Lift Kit — Body lift kits are inexpensive and provide primarily cosmetic benefits:

  • Body lift kits add 1-3 inches of space added between the body and the frame
  • The Jeep suspension and wheels remain the same

Budget Boost / Coil Spring Spacers — Coil spring spacers require some suspension modification and deliver mostly cosmetic benefits. A big draw for this type of lift kit is the option to add bigger tires to your Jeep for a more rugged look and feel.

  • Budget boosts add coiled spacers on top of your vehicle’s existing coil springs
  • This type of lift kit adds about 1.5-2 inches of lift overall
  • Ride quality remains more or less the same as stock

Coil Lift Kit — This is the first of the lift kits we’ll discuss that is ideal for off-roading benefits:

  • Coil lift kits add longer coil springs for 2-3.5 inches of suspension lift
  • Increased articulation is one plus to this kind of Jeep lift, whether you get a Renegade lift kit, a Cherokee lift kit, or even a Grand Cherokee lift kit.

Short Arm Lift Kit — Popular with ardent off-roaders, short arm lift kids require serious suspension mods that provide:

  • Longer front and rear coil arms for over 2-6 inches of lift
  • Increased ground clearance
  • Larger sway bar links and shocks

Long Arm Lift Kit — Only serious off-roaders intent on putting good money into their lift kit to yield serious off-roading results should consider this kind of Jeep lift. Here’s what it has to offer:

  • Long control arms are mounted further back on the Jeep frame
  • Requires welding and fabrication to install
  • Adds 3-6.5 inches of lift or more
  • Offers improved suspension angles along with extreme articulation and crawling abilities
  • Longer control arms can sometimes get caught on rocks
