Jeep Wrangler Lift Options

2021 Jeep Wrangler off-roading

Thinking about buying your next Jeep Wrangler for sale at CH Urness Motor Company? Before you do, consider the differences between buying a new stock Wrangler vs. a lifted Jeep vs. a custom Wrangler for your Hood River driving needs. What’s the difference between a stock Wrangler and a lifted Wrangler? There are several, as it happens:

  • The lift kit raises the Wrangler’s body or suspension, and most of the time it’s done for better off-roading or purely aesthetic reasons. In either case, be ready to turn some heads when you’re on the trail or The Dalles roads. 
  • With the body lift, the distance between the frame and body increases, whereas the distance between the axles and frames increases with a suspension lift.

Why Add a Jeep Wrangler Lift?

There are so many perks to driving a lifted Jeep, including optimized performance. Here are some other benefits to driving a lifted Jeep near Goldendale, WA:

  • Lifted suspensions come equipped with heavier-duty springs, for softer landings on rough terrain.
  • Lift kits provide a better departure angle for clearing steep climbs and rocky overpasses thanks to the extra spacing between your Jeep’s skid plates and the ground.
  • Lift kits in combination with larger off-road tires change the center of gravity.
  • Lifted Jeep Wranglers like the ones for sale in OR at CH Urness Motor Company can offer enhanced visibility in heavy traffic. 

Jeep Wrangler Lift Kit Options

Portland drivers can peruse our inventory for a lifted Jeep Wrangler for sale at CH Urness Motor Company in The Dalles, OR. If the vehicle isn’t lifted, then visit our parts department and we’ll make sure you have the exact lift kit needed for the Wrangler. It’s important to make sure the kit — or any other Jeep parts and accessories — you’re purchasing is an original equipment manufacturer (OEM). These are parts made specifically to fit and work with your new Wrangler. Before making a selection, consider a few things:

  • Is the Jeep being used for off-roading?
  • Are you on a strict budget?
  • What size and type of tires are needed?

Jeep Wrangler Lift Kit Sizes

Knowing this information helps get the most out of the Wrangler. And it helps our team make the right recommendation for a lift kit. Your available lift kit options include:

  • Small Wrangler Lift Kits (1 – 2 inches) are more expensive and easier to install. The extra clearance with a small kit allows for 31-inch tires, for a stronger ride.
  • Bigger Wrangler Lift Kits (2+ Inches) are generally more expensive and meant for Beaverton drivers who enjoy off-roading adventures.
  • If you use your Jeep Wrangler for towing very often, you should keep in mind that lifting your Wrangler and installing larger tires can affect the towing capacity.
