There are a lot of good reasons to want to have a lifted truck. Lifted trucks are also called 4×4 trucks. They are most often used for off road driving and other situations where high impact work is needed. The lifted truck has a regular frame but the chassis has been raised up at least a foot or more beyond where it usually sits on top of the tires. The tires that are used on lifted trucks are a lot larger than on regular trucks. There is a good reason for this. It makes it easier to protect the rest of the truck when you are driving off road. Whether you have a new or used lifted truck, you want to protect it.
