Question about a lift for my friend

One of the docs I work with son totaled his 2013 Chevy 1500 (I know) crewcab. It had a 6" lift. Insurance is only giving $180. He's needing an estimate of cost of lift and instillation. Bought truck used and already had lift. Any ideas?

I googled the year and 6" lift kit and it comes back with prices from $500-$2500. It's really going to depend on the brand and type of lift kit used. That goes for the installation as well. I would say install would be atleast $4-500.

Unless the lift was also specifically insured with the truck he's lucky to get $180 for the suspension damage. Vehicle modifications, unless specifically written into insurance policies, are usually not covered. Not limited to lifts either. Wheels, bumpers, grilles, grille guards, fender flares tonneau covers, vented camper tailgates, HID/smoked headlights and tail lights......ANY aftermarket modification, if you want it insured, needs to be written in. Some companies actually write a separate accompanying policy for aftermarkets. Unfortunately it's not included with normal vehicle insurance, even so-called "full coverage".

yeah lifts not covered even perf motors are not covered should any damage happen to it in an accident.

the lift for the average 6" chevy price is around 800-1800 with about 4-600 for install depending on kit. there are kits that are way more money for sure but this is more your budget price range kit.
