(upbeat music) ♪ Hold up ♪ (upbeat music) – What's going on guys? I'm Fuller from Custom Offsets.
Today, we're answering the question how do I choose the rightlift kit for my truck? And that's kind of avery, very broad question, and so there's not a very specific answer, but I wanna cover in generalwhat are some of the things you're gonna wanna look for, if you're looking to lift your truck, and how you might be ableto pick the best lift kit for your application.
So, kind of jumping into that, the reason why there's nota specific answer for this is because it really dependson what you want to do with your truck.
Are you going for a massiveeight inch lifted show build? Do you wanna go even bigger? Do you wanna do some ofthe 14 inch lift kits that are out there? Do you wanna do a little more functional? Three inch suspension system, that's a lot more than just a lift kit.
Changing out to full coiler, with stuff like that.
Do you wanna just rock the leveling kit? Can you get a lift kitthat also does leveling? And there's just a lotta questions that are all around lift kits, so I wanna hopefully answer some of those and kinda guide you in the right direction to pick the correct kit fornot only your application, meaning your specific vehicle, but also for what you want to do.
So, I think I would break this down in a couple different categories.
First things first, we're gonnastart with the show category 'cause I think there'sa lotta people out there that really just want to getinto the lifted lifestyle and they don't wanna pay awhole bunch of money for it.
They're really just going for the look.
They don't necessarily careas much about performance, but obviously, it's still your truck.
You're still gonna drive it.
You still want it to ride good.
So you're gonna wannapay attention to that, at least a little bit.
So, when it comes to thebest value for your money, what you're getting, I think Rough Countryhas always been out there as being one of the moreaffordable kits on the market, usually, the mostaffordable on the market.
I always talk about their six inch kits being right around $1000.
It does depend on yourapplication, but for the most part, they're right around 1, 000 bucks.
And then you're getting a sizable lift kit for not that much money.
There's a lot of othermanufacturers out there.
You can still pay a $1000 for their kits, but you might not get it as tall.
So if you're trying to fita wide wheel and tire setup, if you're trying to run 20x12s and 35s, or something like that, you're gonna need at minimum a six inch kit.
I guess, it does depend onyour vehicle a little bit, but in general, it's kinda ofa good baseline to go with.
You're still gonna haveto do some trimming to make that all work, but you're gonna need a six inch kit and the wheels and tiresthemselves aren't always super, super cheap, dependingon what you wanna go with.
There's definitely affordableoptions out there too, or you can always finance them.
We offer the financing aslow as zero percent APR, so you can kinda pay over time with that.
So there's always options out there, but in general, if you wannaget in the lifted truck game and you want to do it without spending a whole bunch of money, youwanna go as big as possible, I think Rough Country's a great example.
Now Rough Country hasdifferent lines of kits as well because they're gonna offer things like the Vertex coilovers.
Those are $2100, give or take, depending on your application, but you get more performance out of that, but it's also a little bit more money.
And there's gonna be someguys that are gonna say, “Well, if you're gonna go coilovers, “go with Fox or go with King, ” and that's a whole 'nother ball park, which is kind of theperformance end of things.
So we'll touch on that.
Now, even in the performance category, there's two different optionsthat we're looking at.
We're gonna go with youstill want a lifted truck that's quite large, soa six inch lift kit, but you also want coiloversbecause you want that control over your adjustability on the suspension.
Coilovers are adjustable, meaning you can kinda fine tune them.
You can play around with spring rates and all of that stuff.
But right out of the box, if you're looking to just buy a lift kit, get coilovers that arereally good quality, and have a truck that rides really nice, that's where a companylike BDS is gonna come in.
They offer the Fox coilovers.
Or you can go to Superliftif you want something that's gonna be probably, I would say arguably oneof the best coilovers on the market is King, King Shocks.
So, that is offered with Superlift kits, so you can always go that route too.
And both of those are gonna bekinda on the taller lift kits with steel performance coilovers.
Now, the other side ofthat is going with a kit that's not quite as tall, but still a coilover option.
So that's where recently, we just added Icon suspension systems to the website.
So those are gonna be typically anywhere from a stock heightapplication, a zero kit, to three inches roughly, again, depending on your application.
So this is more designed for the guys that are the weekendwarriors or the off-roaders, where you need a little bit of lift so that you can clearancesome larger tires, not necessarily wide, but just larger.
You're not going for that stance look.
You're gonna be throwing on some Methods and some Falcon Wild Peaks, some Wrangler DuraTrac, something like that, but you need a suspensionsystem that can handle the abuse of going over all thedifferent rough terrain and just hold up to that.
That's where an Icon kit, it might be better suited for your needs.
So, in the realm of suspension, there are specific productsfor specific needs.
We've done a pretty decent job, at least we like to think so, of breaking those downon our YouTube channel at YouTube.
com/customoffsetstv, where you can actuallygo in and see us install most of those kits on vehicles.
We've done different driving reviews and compared Rough Country versus BDS, and we go over what Zone is, 'cause Zone is a sister company to BDS, where you get a lot of the same quality, but for not as much money.
And we always break thingsdown on our website too, where you can just sort by popularity.
So when you enter youryear, make, and model on our website, go to the suspension tab, and then sort by popular.
It's going to be the popular options for people that ownthe same trucks you do, so you can see kinda whereeveryone else's head is at and what they're going with.
So that's always a good option too, if you're kinda new to this.
Otherwise, if you stillneed more information, we've got hours, andhours, and hours of videos on our YouTube channel andthat's where you can find us talking about all thesedifferent lift kits, the wheels, tires, and all that stuff too.
If you already made up your mind and you're pretty certain what you want, you can find all thatat customoffsets.
com, and I think that's it.
That about wraps it up.
Obviously, I'm still in my house here.
I'm making videos at home while Wisconsin is on quarantine, but we have not closed anything, as far as shipping out products.
We're still shipping wheels, tires, and suspension every single day so we canstill get it all to you guys.
