Has anyone lifted non baja hummingbird?

Hello I have been searching and have not found anything on anyone lifting their non baja hummingbird. I am fixing to purchase my 2017 Hummingbird 17RB and found an awesome deal on a Non Baja but I really would like the lifted and just wondering if there is a way to lift the Torsion axles of the Hummingbird's. I am pretty mechanically inclined and have installed many lifts on jeeps trucks etc but never a Torsion axel.

I used to have a R-pod that had a 3" lift kit you could have installed or do it yourself. I would think Jayco has something similar.

Have you tried working over the dealer in El Paso with the one that is lifted already? Might be able to work them down.

In the process. At the moment I have a camper world here so he's trying to get either the one in El Paso or Golden CO

Hope it works out!!!

There is a thread on here about lifting a torsion bar (err.. maybe a torflex) camper that is fairly recent. You might have to dig into the Axle Manufacturer, who may supply them after taking delivery of the low rider.


Ahh.. found it

And an update on this after looking at both baja and non baja doing a lift would be simple. Basically what jayco does is weld a 2" piece of square tube along the bottom of the frame then bolt the axel to that just like they do the frame so a very simple yet effective lift then add the larger tires and wheels. Also the stabilizing jacks I believe will need to be a little taller or extra blocks
