How do I know what lift kit I have?
To know what size lift kit you have, you need to see if you can find the brand name and serial number. If you can’t, look up the vehicle’s stock shock length and compare it to your current shocks. Remove the shocks for a more accurate measurement, or at least remove all cargo from the truck.
How long does it take for a truck to be lifted?
You are looking at about 4 to 5 hours maybe less if everything goes right. I’d say this also if you aren’t rushing. Sure it can be done much faster by someone who does this all the time or has a vehicle lift.
