Since June 2020 I have crossed 48 state lines in my Prius. Sleeping out of the back with the seats folded down.
Whether I stay at campgrounds or dispersed camping one thing is the same. the ground clearance of a stock Prius is really low.
To solve my low ground clearance issue, Prius Offroad came to the rescue.
The Prius Offroad 2010-2015 Prius Plug-In Lift Kit increases ground clearance and provides 1.5” of lift.
This setup allows for up to a 27″ tire and maintains factory ride quality. I am still undecided on the wheel and tire option that will replace the stock 15” wheels, however, I know I want a nice meaty tire.
The owner of Prius Offroad made quick work of the installation; I wish I noted the time he started then finished. He was even so kind enough to cut off the excess u-bolt steel on my hitch tightener.
After the installation was complete my Toyota Prius had a completely different look at it! Most Prius owners are aware of how the front bumper tends to scrape on driveways, not anymore! With my hitch and cargo carrier installed, if I didn’t enter or exit a driveway at an angle I would drag, not anymore.
