Lifted Wrangler vs. Stock Wrangler

Some El Cajon drivers may be unsure as to what the difference is between a lifted Jeep Wrangler and a stock Wrangler. In a lifted Wrangler, the body is raised by the lift kit. This is done for off-roading and aesthetic-related purposes. With a lifted body, the distance between the frame and body increases. With a lifted suspension, the distance between the axles and frames increases. All of this in a lifted Jeep Wrangler contributes to improved performance on rougher terrains.

Benefits of Adding a Jeep Wrangler Lift

Beyond improved performance on the La Jolla roads, here are some additional benefits of having a lifted Jeep Wrangler:

  • When a suspension is lifted, it’s equipped with heavy-duty springs that enable the lifted Jeep Wrangler to land more softly on rough terrains.
  • When you use a lift kit for your Wrangler, your Wrangler is able to clear steep and rocky areas due to the extra spacing between the skid plates and the ground.
  • Lift kits plus larger off-road tires equal a significantly changed center of gravity.
  • Lifted Wranglers can also offer improved vision when driving in heavy traffic.

  • Will you be using your lifted Jeep Wrangler for off-roading often?
  • What is your budget, and how much are you willing to spend?
  • What type of tires do you need and what size?
