Here's my modestly lifted truck. Details below.

Mods to do:
  • Install hidden front receiver behind licence plate so I can mount a portable 9,000 lb winch on the front or back
  • Upgrade charging system for winch
  • Install HD 1-ton idler arm bracket and idler arm parts
  • Install exterior spare tire carrier
  • Install brush guard


After a day of deer hunting last fall.

I'm sure you can get a quote from any local shop. But itll probably be cheaper for you to buy your lift kit online, and then bring it to them to install. It is not too hard to do. I was able to do all my work/maintenance in my driveway. Be prepared to pay anywhere from 5+ hours of labour pending on lift kit.

There are suspension-lifts that provide more clearance for obstacles and allow for adding larger tires (that also add to the clearance) and then there are body-lifts that do not help with road clearance but do aid with providing more room for larger tires.

Suspension lifts mostly consist of replacement of key suspension components. The Rough Country 2.5" suspension lift kit is a good example. Sometimes people also replace the front independent front axle with a solid axle. I wrote up what I did for my lift here: https://blazerforum.com/forum/builds...on-lift-95744/

The body lift consists of adding spacers between the body and frame so that the body sits higher. This I have never done but I would think there are challenges with the steering wheel shaft, electrical connections, and fuel tank filler hose to name a few. I have seen where some would do a body lift purely for the looks. I did my mild suspension lift for purely practical reasons. What you do depends on your goals and the expected uses for your truck.

Most shops can do this type of work but ask around for which ones could do it and what they would charge before buying any parts. Most people do these modifications, at least the suspension lifts, themselves in their garages or driveways.
