Product Description

The UpyerBug Deluxe 3″ Lift kit is the most complete lift kit on the market. It includes everything you need to lift your VW Thing, Type 181 or Karman Ghia. You simply drive it into your garage, follow the supplied instructions and in a few simple hours with nothing more than basic hand tools you drive back out with your body sitting 3″ higher.

Unlike a lot of the Chinese import lift kits the UpYerBug lifts kits are made right her in the USA using only quality components and craftsmanship. They are not some thin piece of tin which will flex and distort under offroad use.

Lift Kit is supplied in raw steel and may require minor adjustments to compensate for differences in your floor pan. These adjustments are nothing more than minor grinding
