Today we're going to jump into a question that you guys ask us pretty frequently. It seems that people always want to know when it comes to lift kits, how big can I really go?

Kicking it off today is a lift kit that we personally have quite a bit of experience with, the BDS Eight-Inch Coilover Kit. One thing that is nice about this kit is it features Fox 2.5 inch factory series coilover shocks.
This kit is a solid choice for just about anyone. One of the coolest parts about this lift kit is that not only does BDS offer this lift for the Super Duties, but they also offer it for the IFS GM's 1500 trucks as well.
If you're looking for a sizeable lift but also want to retain a smoothe ride and drivability, this may just be the lift kit for you. Climbing right up the ladder is the McGaughys 10-Inch Premium Lift Kit for the Fourth-Gen Ram, 2500 trucks.
Unlike some of the other smaller lift kits that Mcgaughys offers, this kit features a full four-link conversion with upper and lower control arms, 10-inch lift coils, adjustable track bar bracket, new bump stops, and two front shocks that have a whopping 29 and a half inches of shock travel.
If all of that wasn't cool enough this kit also comes with Billet Face Plates for the four-link arms. One important thing to note with this kit is that it actually comes right from Mcgaughys unfinished, so be sure to plan on painting or powder coating your lift kit if this is the direction you want to go.
Stepping up to the 12 inches of height, we've got the Wicked manufacturing, 12-inch lift kit for the 2017 and up Ford Super Duty trucks.
Again, this one gives you a total of 12 inches of lift for your truck and features all the goodies that you would expect when it comes to a lift of this size. You will need brake line extensions if you decide to go with this kit because when you're adding 12 inches of lift, the factory components aren't really made to be that far away from the wheels.
One of the coolest things about Wicked is that they have several different options for the control arm design, which really allows you to customize the look of the lift on your truck.
Moving on, the next lift kit we have is the Kelderman 12-14" Lift Kit. Although this is a 12-inch lift, it can be adjusted to fit three different ride heights. The nice thing about this lift kit is that it is air suspension, so you can adjust the height debating if you need to fit in the garage or hook up to a trailer. It is also equipped with optional electronic air controls.
When you pair this with the reccommmended Air Lift 3H Control System, the in-cab display allows for 5 set points, that way you can take advantage of everything your truck has to offer. This lift kit is designed for comfort and easy adjustability. So what do you think, would you put this on your build?
