Maybe you’ve seen some lifted Jeep SUVs rolling around Waconia, and you’re thinking you might want to do that to your vehicle. Let’s talk about what Jeep Wrangler lift kits do. We’ll also talk about the specifics of other lift kits, like Jeep Cherokee lift kits, Jeep Renegade lift kits, and Jeep Grand Cherokee lift kits. 


What Jeep Wrangler Lift Kits Do

Jeep Wrangler lift kits are becoming more and more popular with Minneapolis drivers. Here are some characteristics of a lifted Jeep Wrangler:

  • A lifted Wrangler has higher clearance.
  • A vehicle fitted with a Jeep Wrangler lift kit can accommodate bigger tires.
  • Jeep Renegade lift kits include heavier-duty springs, which are better for rough terrain.
  • The higher suspension makes it easier to climb steep inclines.

What Kinds of Drivers Should Get Jeep Grand Cherokee Lift Kits?

The kind of drivers that buy lift kits like Jeep Renegade lift kits and Jeep Cherokee lift kits typically do a lot of off-roading. The higher clearance makes it easier to clear rocks and cross streams and rivers. But lifting your vehicle may not be wise if you do a lot of towing. Jeep Wrangler lift kits add weight, which in turn impact towing capacity. Also, your vehicle’s center of gravity will be higher, meaning you’ll have to be more careful when executing turns on Chaska area roads.
