While custom lifting is a specialty of some auto shops, lifting a truck or SUV with a combination of parts, kits and creativity is the ultimate solution for many. One combo is using a body lift with a leveling kit rather than a full suspension lift. Increasing height or improving handling with two kit types can give some of the perks of a suspension lift without the higher price tag. Premium kits run in the $200 to $1,000 range, depending on make or model.
