There are a few different motivations for raising your truck. Maybe you want to build the biggest truck out there and go huge with mammoth tires, or perhaps you just want to take your truck out and do some light pre-running so you do a more travel-oriented lift. But for those of you who just want their truck to look a bit more “right,” the solution can be pretty simple.
Trucks come from the factory with a slight rake: The nose is lower than the rear so that when the bed is filled with stuff, the truck becomes physically level. That’s fine for normal people, but what if you want to give your truck a mild lift while leveling out the truck in the process? That’s when you go with a leveling kit, naturally.
ReadyLIFT makes lots of different types of lift kits, including the leveling kit for the 2015-plus Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. This is the first year of the new body style (and new suspension), so the fact that they have the kit ready right out of the gate is awesome.
To find out how awesome, we hit up Desert Rat Off-Road Center in Tempe, Arizona to install its leveling kit on a ’15 GMC Canyon crew cab.
