Benefits of Driving with Lifted Suspension
Over the last decade or so, it seems that the popularity of suspension lifts have skyrocketed. We’re longtime supporters of this hobby, and we’re always happy to see more people join the fold. If you’re new to the concept, you might be wondering why people lift their vehicles. There are tons of reasons out there, and we’ll share a few of the most popular thought processes with you.
For many people, it’s all about the different look provided by a suspension lift. It gives the vehicle a more aggressive stance, and obviously makes the truck stand out more on the road. However, there’s also a different feel to driving a vehicle with a lift kit. It can be difficult to explain, but you’ll know it when you feel it.
If you’re an off-road enthusiast, you’ll find plenty of benefit from adding a suspension lift and new larger wheels to your ride. You’ll have better visibility of the area around you, and can get through rough terrain without a problem. A suspension lift can even offer a number of benefits to your truck’s towing capabilities, such as reducing the risk of bottoming out. If this sounds like a useful setup for you, make sure to get in touch with us.
Frequently Asked Questions: 4×4 Trucks, Lift Kits, and More
If you’re not already an expert, the process of learning about four-wheel drive and custom vehicles can sometimes feel overwhelming. We’ve found that answering some of the most common questions can help. See if we’re able to cover your bases, and remember that you can always get in touch with our office if you have anything you’d like to ask.
Q: What is the difference between four-wheel drive and all-wheel drive?
A: While the two are similar, four-wheel drive typically offers stronger performance than most all-wheel drive setups. While this has been changing in recent years as all-wheel drive systems improve, your best bet is still going to be sticking with 4WD. That’s because a 4×4 setup utilizes a transfer case, and gives you control over your four-wheel drive system. Most all-wheel drive systems will switch power from the rear to the front and back depending on the vehicle’s needs, and will engage all four when that much traction is necessary. You usually won’t have full control over the system, which is necessary for optimizing your off-road experience.
Q: Can I upgrade my vehicle from two-wheel drive to four-wheel drive?
A: Absolutely! Ultimate Rides is just one of the many places you can do that (though we happen to think we’re the best!). If you aren’t happy with your standard two-wheel drive system, but you aren’t ready to buy your next vehicle just yet, ask some professionals about installing a 4×4 setup. The exact cost will depend on your vehicle and who you pick to handle the work. Choose wisely, as the integrity of your vehicle is at stake.
Q: What is the maximum height a lift kit can provide?
A: If you choose a full suspension lift kit, you could raise the height of your vehicle by up to six or sometimes even eight inches. A lift setup of this caliber will need to be handled by experts, and can become quite costly. With the budget end of lift kits, you’ll likely be looking at a maximum of 2 to maybe 4 inches. At the same time, your ride quality may suffer depending on the construction of the kit you choose. Consult with professionals before making your final decision.
Driving with Four-Wheel Drive – What You Need to Know
The main thing to be aware of, if you have never driven four-wheel drive before, is when and how to activate the system. You don’t want to keep your four-wheel drive on at all times. Instead, learn when to switch between your automatic, Hi and Lo settings. In general terms, the Hi setting is when you need greater traction or torque but you’re still travelling at a relatively high speed. You don’t want to go faster than 55 mph on this setting, instead leaving that for the automatic setup. The Lo setting is perfect for tough, low-speed situations where you’ll want plenty of torque and traction. That means when you, or someone you’re trying to assist, is stuck in mud, sand or snow. Make sure to only utilize this setting when travelling slowly.
Important 4×4 Maintenance Information
When you start driving a four-wheel drive vehicle for the first time, there are some important pieces of knowledge regarding maintenance you should remember. Some of your vehicle’s fluids may deplete faster for various reasons. This includes transfer case fluid and differential fluid in addition to all of your other standards. Depending on the level of wear and tear your vehicle sees, you’ll want to get your fluids checked between every 15,000 to 30,000 miles. If you’re spending a lot of time off-road, make sure to keep it closer to that 15,000 range to keep things safe.
Another piece of maintenance to keep in mind is checking the connector that unites your transfer case with its small motor. It’s common for these connectors to take on rust, so every year or so, take it out and coat it with a product to prevent rust. Beyond these tips, all you’ll need to do is follow the standard maintenance procedure for your truck. With just a few extra steps, you’ll be able to experience the full capabilities of your 4×4 truck.
