Lifted trucks offer several advantages. They offer improved off-roading capabilities, added resale value for the vehicle, and an enhanced view of the road. By contacting a trusted dealer like Peters Auto Mall, you can find lifted used trucks for sale that will fit your needs. Before searching for lifted used trucks for sale, there are a few things you should consider.
Height of the Lifted Truck
The highest lifted truck can range from about 10 inches to 12 inches in height. Each state has its own laws regarding how high you can lift your truck and the height of your bumper. The average acceptable lift limit is between 6 and 10 inches in height. In North Carolina, there aren’t many regulations regarding lifted trucks. There are only two laws pertaining to lifted trucks. They cannot be over 13 feet and 6 inches tall. Also, the head lights cannot be more the 42 inches from the ground. When searching for lifted used trucks for sale keep these regulations in mind. At Peters Auto Mall, our lifted trucks are all with the limits for North Carolina.
Lifted Truck’s Fuel Economy
Lifted trucks are higher in fuel consumption than average vehicles. The main reason is due to size. A larger truck requires more power to drive around, decreasing your fuel economy. Lifted trucks also have larger tires that require more power to turn. Since the truck is higher off the ground, more air passes under it causing a drag on the suspension and exhaust. This slows down the truck. Keep in mind that a lifted truck does add to fuel consumption, but there are things you can do due to reduce this consumption. When looking for lifted used trucks, select tires with a wide aggressive tread, which will give you more rolling resistance and help reduce the amount of power to turn the wheel. Having lower gears will adjust the power and save more on fuel.
Before you buy a lifted truck, make sure to check that the lift was installed correctly. Many cheap lift kits don’t include ball joints, transfer case drops, control arms, etc. These lifted trucks will be subject to premature suspension component and tire wear and failure. Also check the tires. Cheap tires on lifted trucks mean the tires will need to be replaced over and over again.
