Your Lift and Trailer Pictures.

I have been wanting to put a lift on my truck forever now. I keep debating on what size of lift to get. I pull a gooseneck trailer on a weekly basis. Was wondering if some of you could post your lifted trucks pulling a trailer. Thanks.

Pointless to lift a truck that spends its life pulling

yea. i know. it wont spend its "life" pulling. we bought a single axle semi, so now we wont use our trucks as much, which will make them last even longer. And i was just going to put a leveling kit on, because my front springs are just plain worn out. But after looking around. It seems that i can find a slightly used 4" or so lift for about the same price as a leveling kit, and i havent ever seen a used leveling kit for sale. I just hate how my truck looks as far as how bad it sags up front.

I sold mine because it was too high... (It endned up being cheaper to sell/buy a truck than it was to lower mine... couldn't pass up the deal)

With it being that tall and pulling that 30' enclosed trailer (14k fully loaded), it wasn't fun.




This pulls the load SO much better, just because it's lower.

Haven't the slightest clue.. bought it used. I was told anything from stock (snow plow option) to several inches.

Raul, I could see that if you were pulling a 5th wheel or goose neck, it wouldn't be as much of an issue...

my trailer is bumper pull... didn't like it.
