About us


We appreciate you taking the time today to visit our web site. Our goal is to give you an interactive tour of our new and used inventory, as well as allow you to conveniently get a quote, schedule a service appointment, or apply for financing. The search for the perfect car, truck or SUV is filled with high expectations. Undoubtedly, that has a lot to do with the vehicles you are considering, but at Ultimate Rides, we think you should also have pretty high expectations for your dealership.

 — Nick Bulanda, President of Ultimate Rides


In the Midwest trucks are a number one seller. Many owners only keep their current truck for 5 years and look to upgrade to something newer and better. New trucks are expensive. Best deals are on a 1-2 year old truck after initial depreciation kicks in. Then you can save thousands! The demand is high yet the supply is limited.

But Ultimate Rides is here to help.

Our inventory specialist travels to various spots where trucks are available and purchases only the best. Trucks are then brought in from these “hot spots” and then modified to make sure they are true Ultimate Rides!

But we don’t just buy and sell trucks!

Ultimate Rides has plenty of cars and SUV’s available to choose from as well as one of our favorite vehicles, the Jeep Wrangler!!!

The Wrangler has been one of the most sought after off-road vehicles and with endless possibilities to customize to your liking, no two are the same. They come in 2 door or 4 door, hard top or soft top, manual transmission or automatic. Stock ride height or lifted! Ultimate Rides always has a few ready to go.
