Lifting your truck doesn't necessarily mean you have to go sky high or cross the line of becoming impractical. Many of the new 1500 series trucks run a strut-style shock for the front suspension. This coilover design makes it easy for aftermarket suspensions, such as this Rancho Quick-Lift strut, to give you up to 2 inches of lift without dropping or modifying any of the control arms or attachment points. Most of these 1- to 2-inch kits, commonly referred to as leveling kits, will usually allow you to squeeze on a healthier sized tire than the pizza cutters that most of the new trucks come from the factory with. The adjustability of the Quick-Lift gives you a variety of options to harden or soften the ride depending on the terrain.
