First things first, things will wear faster than normal. Expect to be doing new ball joints and wheel bearings, if you have an older vehicle you should do this before you even put on the lift kit. You will also start to hear new noises as other things are going to start showing their age a lot faster too. On top of all of this, you will also burn through fuel faster as well. The breaking and acceleration will also be inhibited when putting in a lift kit. To combat that you can get bigger brakes. If you have a new vehicle you can expect the dealership to not be very happy with you for making the decision to lift your new truck. However; this does not void your warranty. As far as what to expect if you are installing the lift kit yourself, we say that it is about a 6/10 for difficulty if you are mechanically inclined. It will be about a 2-weekend job if you are on the ground putting it in yourself. The cutting is going to be the most intimidating part. In the end, what you can expect is a good looking truck with a lot of character. If you want to build a truck we highly recommend it, but you should be aware of the repercussions when you do choose to lift it. Be ready to spend some money, but it will be a fun ride and your truck will look great in the end and we hope you end up feeling really great about it.
