    Not sure how old you are or how much your job pays, etc. But I would not get a loan to install a lift kit on a truck. I would just take some time and save the money to purchase the lift. If you need to get a loan in order to do the lift, it it not worth it in my opinion. Save the money until you can afford it.

    Just my $.02

    ill-advised imo. on the other hand if a guy can get a $2500 loan at 4% interest for a lift kit, you must be doing something right.

    i got some pretty sweet credit for a 19 year old and did it all on my own. my bank is a local credit union so that helps. but now i will only need like a 1000 from them to do the same lift next month, it will end up being a mid travel set up with some modified rear springs lol

    Dude you have to establish some line of credit and at 4% its a small hit to take so that you csn continue to build that line of credit. I bought my first house at 20 i am now 26 and own three. I was an idiot and took a loan of 18k @ 13% for a vehicle.

    I'm a finance manager and I can pretty much assure you that this type of credit will never reflect on your credit report. There would be no advantage to taking out this loan for credit purposes. The only advantage would be to get your lift sooner. Good Luck!!

    4% isn't shit. But I personally wouldn't take out a loan to get something sooner that you dont need...I think that you are just instilling some bad habits for yourself.

    But hey...just dont miss a payment and you will be okay ;)

    Sorry, i didn't mean to patronize you. I can understand why you would want to get rid of those blocks so bad.

    I guess if its that bad, its more of a repair than a purely luxury purchase.

    I cant wait to get some coilovers so I can lift my truck enough to take my body lift off. Will have to wait a few paychecks.
