2018 Ford F-150 Receives an Affordable Yet Effective Lift

By -

You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to make your 2018 Ford F-150 look awesome!

Lift kits are typically expensive parts that aren’t exactly cheap to have installed. Total outlay can easily reach into the thousands of dollars, and that doesn’t even include new wheels and tires. But if you just hate your truck’s factory rake or simply want to run a larger set of tires, leveling kits are an affordable and easy alternative. And they make a huge difference on a truck like this 2018 Ford F-150.

After only owning his new truck for a month, David Von Voris started feeling the itch most of us eventually feel, if not immediately. With a desire to obtain a “clean, Baja-style look” instead of doing “something crazy,” a leveling kit seemed like the perfect fit. So Von Voris hopped in his 2018 Ford F-150 and headed on down to his local suspension shop.

Interestingly enough, Von Voris admits that his last truck, with a 6-inch lift, was a bit much around town. As many of us already know, that kind of lift causes problems not only with cornering, but also simply fitting in things like your average parking garage. But a leveling kit still allows you to run bigger tires without that sort of hassle.

And yet, a simple 2.5-inch spacer up front makes a huge difference in the way this 2018 Ford F-150 looks. And once Von Voris gets his new wheels and tires just a couple of days later, the truck looks completely different. Almost like it’s ready to hit Baja instead of the mall! It’s just a testament to what an inexpensive pair of spacers and the right wheel/tire combo can do for a modern Ford truck. So what are you waiting for?
