Atlanta Lifted Truck Dealer

For most drivers, a truck with a basic suspension straight from the factory is all they need to enjoy their daily tasks and to get the most from their pickup. If you are looking for something a bit more refined, however, you might be interested in installing a lift kit onto your truck or buying a truck that has already been lifted. As your premier Atlanta lifted truck dealer, we can fully appreciate the desire to have a truck with a unique look, larger tires, and the ability to handle off-roading that most other trucks could not even imagine. Lifted trucks are not all the same, so it is very important that you choose a dealership you know you can trust.

Here at Rick Hendrick Chevrolet of Buford, we are committed to being able to help all of our customers find exactly what they are looking for. A lifted truck can be a fantastic option, but with different types of lifts available and the potential for serious damage, if one is installed improperly, it is very important that you work with a service center and parts department that you know you can trust. Whether you are looking to buy a new or used truck with a lift kit already installed on it or need a kit installed onto your current pickup, we are here to help. Give us a call at Rick Hendrick Chevrolet of Buford today to discuss your options and discover a truck that can take you everywhere you want to go.

Types of Lift Kits

When talking about lifted trucks, it is important to recognize that there are numerous options regarding a lift kit that you will find on them or that you can have installed onto your current pickup. First, let us take a look at these options to see what each offers:

  • Body Lift – This lift raises your frame up from the suspension, which is typically pretty inexpensive and easy to install. If you are interested in larger tires but not greater ground clearance, a body lift kit can be a great choice.
  • Suspension Lift – A suspension lift actually raises the suspension of your vehicle to increase your ground clearance and is the preference for going off-road. This type of lift is more expensive than a body lift and needs to be installed properly to avoid damaging your vehicle or making your truck unsafe to drive.
  • Leveling Kit – This type of kit will level out the stance of your truck from front to rear, which some people prefer the look of. These are also usually inexpensive and pretty easy to install, though it still needs to be done professionally.

With these three types of lift kits in mind, you now have a good sense of exactly what you are looking for, along with some of the benefits and drawbacks of each one. The biggest thing to consider is that a suspension lift will potentially change how your truck handles by shifting its weight upward and changing its center of gravity. It is very important that any of these kits are installed correctly and that you practice driving a lifted truck carefully at first until you get a feel for how it handles. The last thing you want is to tip over on I-85 or find yourself stranded out on Horseshoe Ridge Road because you were not ready for how your truck now drives.

Get a Chevy Colorado With a Lift

The mid-size Chevy Colorado is one of the most popular trucks on the road and a favorite for going off-road due to its maneuverability and performance. This makes the Colorado a common choice for drivers looking for a lifted truck, which is why they are so popular. Such popularity can also make a lifted Colorado tricky to find, so it helps to have a dealership you can rely on to help you track down the perfect pickup to take out to the Beasley Knob OHV trail.

One of the best things about the Colorado is that it has been offered across numerous model years with a suspension lift installed by the manufacturer. This means you do not have to worry about someone installing it incorrectly or that it has shifted the truck's handling into dangerous territory, though it might still handle differently from non-lifted models. In particular, you should look for Z71 trims of the Colorado for the best off-road features and factory-lifted design, which is perfect if you want a new or used model that is ready for the trail.

Get a Chevy Silverado With a Lift

Alongside the Colorado, the full-size Chevy Silverado is one of our favorite trucks and a fantastic choice for going off-road or daily driving. If you want a lifted full-size pickup rather than a mid-size model, this is the way to go, and you will find a wide range of options available. Just like with the Colorado, a Silverado with a lift kit can be hard to track down, so having experts by your side while shopping makes things a lot easier.

The Silverado has also been a great choice for an off-road pickup for many years now, with options straight from the manufacturer that are great for hitting the trail. You will find numerous models, either new or used, that come with factory-installed lift kits that can boost performance and improve ground clearance for going off-road. In particular, look for Trail Boss models, or the Silverado ZR2, which is one of the most impressive full-size trucks on the market for climbing up Currahee Mountain Trail or enjoying your daily drive throughout the week.

Let Us Install a Lift Kit for You

Buying a new or used truck with a lift kit installed on it is only one option since you can also have a kit installed onto a truck you already have. Choosing the right lift kit, and getting a good one that will not damage your truck, is very important; just as important as getting it installed properly. If mistakes are made with any of these considerations, not only can you damage your pickup, but you can make it so unsafe to drive that you could cause a crash harming yourself or others. This is why you need to have someone you can trust to work on your truck and install the lift kit for you.

Here at our certified service center and parts department, we can help you choose the perfect lift kit for the kind of results you want with your truck. Not only will we ensure you have the right one, but our expert technicians can install it for you, so you have the peace of mind from knowing that it was done correctly. This means you get to enjoy everything a lifted truck offers and know that you are safe on (and off) the road.
