As the progenitor of off-road vehicles, the original function of pickup trucks is to be able to transport on bad roads. Then, it needs to have a good passing performance. Elevation is the easiest way to improve the passability of the pickup truck, choose the mature elevation kit, the whole modification process is very simple. As for how high is appropriate, it depends on the environment of your car. Generally, the height of two inches is the most suitable. Both can take into account off-road conditions, but also will not unduly affect the road performance.

Whether your pickup truck is raised or not, it needs a high strength footrest. One; pickup truck itself chassis is high, small people get in and out of the car is really inconvenient, two; pickup truck wheelbase is long, the passing angle is very small. On some unpaved roads, it is easy to hurt the lower part of the body. Footrest can protect the body from additional impact.
Side Steps should be selected after installation and the body has a certain clearance, do not have to use the kind of tightly attached to the body. That way, when the vehicle is subjected to a strong impact, the pedal bends and deforms or will hurt the body. In addition, although the electric pedal is cool, but the stability is not good, once the failure can not be retracted, will affect the passability of the vehicle.
