Lifted golf carts are popular ways to get around your neighborhood or beach community and some places even allow you to drive them on the street! (Check your local laws!)

When most people think of golf carts, they think of the small, electric vehicles that are used to transport golfers around a golf course. However, there is a growing trend of lifting these vehicles to create taller and more off-road capable carts. So, how tall is a lifted golf cart? And what are the benefits?

In this blog post, we will discuss the pros and cons of having a lifted golf cart and answer some common questions about them!

Why lift a cart?

Lifted golf carts are becoming increasingly popular, especially among those who enjoy getting off the beaten path. There are many benefits to having a lifted golf cart, including the ability to clear obstacles, increased stability, enhanced utility, and improved safety.

So, how tall is a lifted golf cart? And what are the benefits and drawbacks? Let’s take a closer look!

How tall are lifted golf carts?

Golf carts typically have a ground clearance of 4.5 inches. Most lifted carts sit around 74-77 inches high.

A lifted cart can generally be lifted with a 3, 4, 5, or 6-inch lift kit. The actual overall added ground clearance will be determined by the size of the lift you choose and the tires you put on your cart.

You can figure this out by adding the clearance of the lift and half the tire size to your clearance. It is important to state that your differential clearance will be different than your overall clearance. For instance, however many inches your tire is over stock, half of that will add to the differential clearance. 

Benefits of a lifted golf cart


Increased clearance from your lifted golf cart can be beneficial for clearing obstacles, such as rocks or fallen debris.

The increased height and suspension can improve ride quality, especially when driving on uneven terrain, and can also provide a better view of the surroundings, which can be helpful in avoiding hazards.

The ability to traverse different kinds of terrain effectively provides your cart with more utility. You also don’t have to worry about the body scrubbing your tires when hauling!

Benefits of a lifted golf cart


Let’s face it, one reason people lift their carts is that it just looks great. You can give your cart a completely different look with just a basic lift.

When lifted, your cart has a custom, stylish, slightly aggressive look. This look commands attention and makes your cart stand out. So, if you like people admiring your cart as you cruise by, a lifted cart may be just right for you. 

Increased tire size

The increased tire size you gain from having a lifted cart makes for a smoother ride. Bigger tires give you more contact with the ground, helping with traction and stability.

These tires are also thicker which helps to cushion your ride. For off-road purposes, you also get increased differential clearance, which helps you to clear obstacles!
