Lift kits are nothing new in the truck market, but what they look like is evolving. MaxTrac pushed the limits of what control arms should look like with its kit for the Ford Super Duty and now for late-model Ram 2500 and 3500 trucks.
This lift kit is 100-percent bolt-on, designed and fabricated in the USA, and available in a four-inch or six-inch lift option. The option is also there to use the factory radius arms with drop-down brackets or MaxTrac’s new four-link suspension system with forged aluminum arms.
“The forged aluminum arms are built using 6082 T-6 aluminum that is hot forged, pressed into the mold, chilled to complete the strengthening process then anodized clear for corrosion resistance,” Eric Jolly explained. “Chromoly sleeves are inserted on the axle end of the links for strength and durability. The frame end of the links feature adjustable and flexible rod ends for smooth suspension travel. The lower links are specially designed for ‘On the Fly’ caster adjustment without removing them from the vehicle.”
The links bolt to the frame using new brackets that require no-drilling. Both the radius arm and 4-link systems use American-made and powder coated 1/4-inch thick laser cut bracketry with front linear coil springs. The kits are designed to allow the vehicle to be aligned to factory specifications.
To make sure the trucks sit level MaxTrac also addressed the rear. The 2500 model kits come with rear coil spring spacers, 3500 model kits come with fabricated leaf spring blocks, and both rear setups retain factory load capacity and tow ratings.
Max Trac will be offering two shock options for its kit. The MAXPRO and the MAXPRO ELITE are similar but will receive different shocks. The budget-friendly MAXPRO kit has MaxTrac’s in-house twin tube shock, while the MAXPRO ELITE kit comes with Fox Performance series 2.0 IPF smooth body shocks.
Kits are shipping now and all the information can be found on MaxTrac’s website.
