How To Install After Market Wheel Lift

Do You Have The Right Truck For A Wheel Lift?

Safety is a huge priority to us and we are all about educating our customers on the safest practices. If you do not have the right vehicle for a wheel lift it can quickly become a very dangerous situation.

Frame Reinforcement For Wheel Lifts

The key to installing a wheel lift is to make sure your frame is strong enough to support the weight without failure. Installation of frame reinforcement is your first step to securing a reliable wheel lift. Better safe than sorry.  We guarantee that with our experienced craftsmanship you will never have an issue with your frame. We charge $1,600 for parts and labor. That is very inexpensive. Paying 2 fabricators for 2 days to address your frame like their life depends on it.
