MaxTrac Lift Kits
Bigger wheels & tires are probably be the best add-on to enhance driving through above-mentioned conditions, but most of the time limitations are imposed by the suspension of the truck not being able to fit nor adapt to run the combo you’re looking for.
So, what is there to be done? Increase ground clearance and run the wheel fitment you’re looking for with a MaxTrac’s lift kit.
There isn’t much explaining to do, as the concept behind MaxTrac lift kits is to be kept as simple as possible, thus allowing a mounting procedure without a high complexity grade. In other words, lift kits are designed to be installed without much hassle and work properly for extended periods of time thanks to their cast-type construction. If you are a do-it-yourself type of person, chances are you will be able to fit one MaxTrac lift kit on your truck inside your garage. Still, we recommend having your truck lifted inside a specialized service unit.
To provide a specific example on what a lift kit is made of, let’s have a look at a 2WD Toyota Tacoma, built between 2005 and 2014. All Tacoma trucks built between these years feature the same suspension, all allowing for a MaxTrac lift kit to be installed. A typical MaxTrac lift kit ready to be installed on a Tacoma truck includes 4” lift spindles along with DOT approved brake lines (MaxTrac takes no chances when it’s about vehicle safety), 2.5” strut spacer, 4” rear lift blocks with U-shaped bolts, brake line and carrier bearing brackets and twin-tube MaxTrac patented rear shocks.
The combination of elements has been carefully designed, forged and assembled in order to replace a stock Tacoma truck suspension without the need of wielding, cutting or any other custom adjustments. All components featured in the lift kit fit bolt-on on the chassis. Different components may be found inside the lift kit provided for your truck compared to ones offered for Toyota Tacoma trucks. This depends on your truck’s make and model.
A lift kit looks and sounds good, but let’s have a better look on what it can actually do for your truck. First of all, the purpose of any lift kit is to get your car higher off the ground. An increased ground clearance will facilitate over passing road objects such as fallen rocks or logs without having to commence evasive maneuvers. Your oil pan and exhaust system will be kept high and safe.
Also, a lifted suspension allows for bigger wheels to be mounted. Depending on your truck’s model, MaxTrac lift kits can allow wheels up to 35” to be mounted instead of the stock figures. Say goodbye to traction issues caused by snow and mud.
Built only using the highest strength materials and solely one-piece cast designs, MaxTrac lowering kits will prove to be a sturdy ally over time, while also providing a bolt-on fit when replacing your truck’s stock suspension.
