Choose a Lift Kit

There are a bunch of options available for Corpus Christi drivers when it comes to lifting your Jeep. The type of lift kit you choose depends largely on your desires, driving habits, and your budget. These are some of the most common lift-kits available:

Body Lift

Allen Samuels CDJR Aransas Pass always recommends OEM parts first. You know you’re getting quality and they hold up over time. A body lift is an inexpensive and easy way to lift a Jeep Wrangler. Additional space is added between the body and frame and provides 1 to 3 inches of lift while also keeping the suspension and wheels stock.

Mopar has a Jeep® Performance Parts 2 body lift kit developed by Jeep® brand engineers and off-road enthusiasts that allows you to use larger tires on those Kingsville trails. The kit includes 2.5″ diameter aluminum body monotube FOX shock absorbers for cooler operation. The lift kit improves articulation and tire-to-ground contact. The longer front control arms optimize suspension tuning for on-road drivability while improving off-road performance. The parts are easy to install as no driveshaft or brake line replacements are needed. Rigorously tested for performance and durability, the parts meet all FCA US LLC production standards.

Budget Boost/Coil Spring Spacers

This type of lift involves placing coil spacers on top of your Jeep’s coil springs giving your Jeep 1.5 to 2 inches of lift. This lift is popular around Port Lavaca because it doesn’t require a lot of suspension modifications and factory ride quality is still maintained. Like the body lift, this alteration is mostly for looks and used mainly for drivers wanting larger tires.

Coil Lifts

With this type of lift, longer coil springs are added to your Jeep Wrangler, providing 2 to 3.5 inches of suspension lift. Also, the taller coil spring provides improved articulation. It’s a great choice of lift for serious off-road enthusiasts.

Long Arm Lift Kit

A long arm lift kit uses long control arms mounted further back on the Wrangler’s frame to provide better suspension angles. A long arm lift provides extreme articulation and superior crawling capability. It requires welding and fabrication to install, so it’s not for novice DIY individuals.

Short Arm Lift Kit

A short arm lift kit contains everything found in a coil spring kit but adds longer front and rear control arms, larger sway bar links, and shocks. Short arm lift kits are a favorite due to their efficiency. This lift provides 2 to 6 inches of lift and gives greater off-road ability with significantly improved ground clearance.
