Sometimes, all an off-road enthusiast wants is a little more height on their ride. The extra height allows them to add much larger tires and conquer rougher and more intense terrain. While there are a lot of options out there on the market for lifting your truck, Jeep or SUV, some people are left with the question: Can you stack levelling kits with lifting kits for the ultimate height adjustment?
Can You Stack a Leveling Kit?
When it comes to stacking leveling kits, there are a lot of variables that you need to deal with in order to come to your conclusion on whether you can stack or not. While there is no singular answer to whether you can stack aftermarket suspensions or not, it is pretty universal that the idea of stacking aftermarket levelling kit on top of a lift kit is not a recommended practice.
The fact that it is not a recommended practice, however, does not mean that it cannot be done. Under the right circumstances, stacking can be a great option. One of these situations could be combining a 6” lift and 2” lift kit in order to get a solid 8” lift for your truck.
When it comes to customizing your truck, Jeep or SUV you need to remember that your ride is your own, and while there are recommendations, you need to find what will work best for you and your situation. What kind of lift are you looking for? What kind of ride do you want out of it? These are all factors that you need to explore. While you may be able to achieve your goal through stacking, you may also find that there is a specific aftermarket suspension kit that can give you the same benefits without the risk.
