How Much Does It Cost to Lift a Truck?

Mechanic with wrenches


Lifted trucks are great for going off-road, due to the extra clearance, and they look pretty cool, too! It’s no wonder we see so many of them rolling around West Lafayette nowadays. If you’re thinking about getting your pickup truck lifted, you’re likely wanting to know how much to budget for it. How much does it cost to lift a truck if you hire someone to do it? How much is it to lift a truck if you were to do it yourself? We’ll talk about that, along with other things you should keep in mind when getting your pickup lifted. 

How Much Does It Cost to Lift a Truck If a Shop Does It?

Lifting a truck can be complicated, and it’s something you want done right. That’s why a lot of drivers prefer to have a professional do it. How much is it to lift a truck if a professional does it? Hiring a Indianapolis area professional to lift a truck can cost anywhere from $800 to $8,000. The reason the cost varies so much is that it depends on several factors such as whether a leveling or lift kit is used, what kind of setup you want, and what kind of truck you have. Our service center would be happy to walk you through your options. 

How Much Is It to Lift a Truck if I Do It on My Own?

Maybe you’re pretty handy in the garage and you like to do things yourself. How much does it cost to lift a truck if you do it yourself? That depends on which kind of kit you choose to buy. We’ll get into the pros and cons of each type of kit later. But this is how the costs of each type break out:

  • Leveling and body kits – $100 to $500
  • Suspension kits – $1,000 to $5,000

Should You Use a Suspension Lift or Body Lift?

If you’ve done some research into lifting a truck, you’ve no doubt learned there are two types of lift kits you can use: suspension lift and body lift kits. We strongly recommend that amateurs who try to tackle this themselves stick to body lift kits, as they are far less complex than suspension lifts. Here the are details about each type:

Body Lift

  • Can increase your truck’s height by 1 to 3 inches (not as high as a suspension lift)
  • Is less expensive than a suspension lift
  • Is far simpler than a suspension lift

Suspension Lift

  • Can lift your truck 4 to 6 inches (twice as much as a body lift)
  • Is more expensive than a body lift, and may require the purchase of additional parts
  • Is more complex than a body lift
