ONE TREE PLANTED FOR EVERY LIFT KIT SOLD!
Our lift DOES NOT reduce fuel economy. There have even been results from several “hyper-milers” that have seen a slight increase in fuel economy (.5-1mpg), however this is not something that we proclaim or promote. Keep in mind that changing tire size/type will result in a reduction in fuel economy. We suggest leaving the factory tires on and enjoying the increase in ride height without a reduction in fuel economy prior to making a decision on tires.
The listed MAXIMUM tire size DOES NOT mean this is what we RECOMMEND. Bigger isn't always better and finding the right tire for your needs makes all the difference. Running the largest tire possible will have the most negative impact on fuel economy, handling, etc, as well leaves you very little space for things like tire chains, so if you plan on using tire chains in winter you might want consider a smaller tire size than the maximum.
Between fuel economy, on/off road performance, road noise, diameter, width, etc. there are countless factors that determine the “right” tire. The tallest tire that does well off-road, is quiet and comfortable on-road, and delivers the best fuel economy DOES NOT exist. You will need to prioritize what matters most to you and accept that everything comes at a cost. There is ample information regarding this online and we suggest that each person do their own research in order to narrow down their best option.
If you are planning on installing our lift and have over 100k-150k miles on your struts and are noticing poor driving/handling characteristics, now is an ideal time to consider replacing them since you will be removing them in order to install our lift. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND using KYB strut assemblies since this is what your vehicle was designed around and came with from the factory. Likewise, our lifts are designed around factory components. With dozens of aftermarket strut companies it would be impossible to test our kits on all of them and we cannot be held responsible if our lift does not fit an aftermarket strut manufacturer.
Backspacing, offset, diameter, width, weight, etc. Just like tires, the possibilities are endless and everyone's preferences and priorities are different. For the most part, the factory wheels offer a solid balance of size and weight, and most customers end up using them without any complaints. If you are considering purchasing aftermarket wheels the one suggestion we have is to consider a 16” wheel based on the fact that this increases the number of oversized tire options available while also balancing out the increase in tire diameter with tire sidewall when running an oversized tire.
Installation time and costs vary greatly depending on where you are located and the type of shop you are using. If you plan on doing the installation yourself we have several detailed videos on our website outlining this process step-by-step. If you are planning on having a shop handle the install we suggest calling your local brake and alignment shop to receive a quote. If they are unable/unwilling to do the installation ask them if they have any recommendations on who might be able to handle the installation in your area.
What’s the difference between models of the same generation? (ie GEN 4: Prius, Prius Prime, Prius AWDe): All models within each generation utilize the same lift kit. We simply like to track what models are most popular in order to gauge future product development.
We designed our lift kits around making sure that the least amount of stress was put on all steering and suspension components and this is the main reason we do not offer a height larger than 1.5”. By keeping the height increase at a reasonable level it ensures that all of your factory tolerances and components are within factory spec and not susceptible to premature wear or failure.
We're so confident in the quality of our products that we offer a LIFETIME GUARANTEE. That's right! If you manage to break it, just send it back and we will replace it free of charge.
If you don’t see a lift available for your particular model then it is not something we currently offer. Feel free to email us with an inquiry of your specific make, model, and year and we will let you know if this is something that we plan on releasing in the future.
We have been in the R&D stages of our upcoming Prius C lift kit for several months and expect to have it released to the public and ready for purchase around mid February 2021.
We have been in the R&D stages of our upcoming CT200h lift kit for several months and expect to have it released to the public and ready for purchase around the end of January 2021.
After spending over a decade building prerunners and off-road vehicles we found ourselves logging 60K+ highway miles a year in trucks with the fuel economy of a fully loaded 1984 box van going uphill in a head wind. The need for a fuel conscious counterpart was inevitable and we reluctantly swallowed our pride for the possibility of 40+ mpg. It wasn't long before we fell in love with all the Prius had to offer and our once beloved trucks sat collecting dust. Soon after, we found ourselves behind the fuel sipping wheel on weekend off road adventures, even when the environment was better suited for a vehicle with more ground clearance. Determined to breathe new life into an otherwise incredibly well rounded vehicle we began to modify the Prius to better suit our needs. A little lift here, larger tires there, a 2" trailer hitch for the bike rack, a cargo platform, etc. It didn't take long until people were stopping us on the street, leaving notes under our wipers, or eagerly inquiring at our favorite BLM/National forest camp spots, where they could buy our products; and thus Prius Offroad was born!
We offer lift kits for the GEN 1, 2, 3, & 4 Toyota Prius, Prius V, and Prius Prime. Our lift kits consist of CAD drawn, laser cut, hand welded, American steel, front and rear strut/coil spacers made right here in the USA. All hardware is class 10.9 ensuring it meets or exceeds any and all factory specifications, and FAR surpasses any other kit on the market. Don’t settle for polyurethane spacers that dry out, crack, and fall apart. Don’t put your life in the hands of grade 5 hardware. We offer the only metal Prius lift on the market that also provides camber and caster correction, and does NOT require the removal and replacement of your pressed in factory hardware.
"Why not!?" We whole heartedly believe in the untapped and unsuspecting potential of the Prius. Our goal is to improve upon an already incredible vehicle by making it better suited for the active and outdoor lifestyle many of us Prius owners thrive in. Our focus is on gaining "just enough" ground clearance to avoid scraping your bumper on driveway approaches and parking blocks, high centering on speed bumps, or adventuring down your favorite dirt road. All without sacrificing fuel economy, drivability, or positive handling characteristics. Our kit also provides enough clearance to run up to a 2" larger diameter tire for even more off-road prowess.
