When you’re ready, you can feel free to get in touch with our team over the phone for personalized assistance.
Custom Jeep Wrangler SUVs
Our top recommendation for drivers looking for off-road SUVs is the Jeep Wrangler. It’s long been the best choice for those looking to leave pavement and hit the trail, and for a number of very good reasons. It’s an SUV that was designed for adventure. Some models are more off-road capable than others, but Ultimate Rides can get any Wrangler ready for off-road action with just a few adjustments. Whether you opt for a newer model, complete with added interior features, or an older one due to the more attractive price point, we can set it up with enhanced suspension and the right accessories you need to stay safe off-road.
Here at Ultimate Rides, the Wrangler is one of the most common SUVs you can find for sale. We always offer vehicles at a fair rate, and the Wrangler is no exception. Take a look at the models we currently have to offer, or get in touch with our team and let us know if there is a specific Wrangler model you want to get your hands on. Our team will work hard to make sure you’re happy with the end result, and you’ll be ready for a future filled with off-roading.
Other Contenders: Jeep Grand Cherokee and Land Rover Defender
If, for whatever reason, you’d like to pick another SUV over the Wrangler, there are a couple of options we can recommend. That even includes another Jeep model: the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Grand Cherokee often sports a more formidable engine configuration compared to the Wrangler, as well as offering something of a sleeker style for you to consider. Both SUVs can be outfitted with great interior features, with many coming standard in the newer models. However, historically the Grand Cherokee has been less reliable than the Wrangler, especially when it goes through lots of off-road use. While either model will get the job done, we do encourage you to consider the Wrangler unless there is a specific reason you prefer the Grand Cherokee.
Another strong choice as one of the best off-road vehicles is the Land Rover Defender. This tough SUV has been around for many years, and Land Rover has designed it to not only withstand but flourish off-road. The latest generation of the vehicle is available in models that include useful off-road features like adjustable suspension, four-wheel drive, and improvements over the last generation’s two-speed transfer case. Plus, as always, Ultimate Rides can set you up with even more improvements to get the SUV, Land Rover or otherwise, ready for adventure.
Ford Ranger: Off-Road Pickup Truck
Decide you’d rather find a pickup truck for your off-road pursuits? If so, we recommend the Ford Ranger. It’s a smaller pickup truck, which is definitely something you want to look for. Larger trucks will be much more difficult to maneuver through rough terrain, and the Ford Ranger has all the performance capabilities you’ll need to handle yourself on the trail. You’ll still want to outfit your Ford with upgrades like lifted suspension, and other improvements depending on the model year. As always, you’re welcome to get in touch with our team to find out the best way to enhance your vehicle for off-road use.
In addition to the Ranger, the Ford Bronco is another vehicle that could serve you well. It’s another SUV, and offers plenty of capability off-road. The newer version of the Bronco can offer as much as 330 HP, as well as features such as removable doors, a seven speed manual transmission, and on-demand four-wheel drive. If you like the sound of the Bronco, let us know and we’ll be able to track one down for you without any problem. We’ll even customize your Bronco exactly how you want!

We can adjust the suspension height, offer custom LED headlights, install new tires, or even completely upgrade your interior.

No matter which vehicle you buy from Ultimate Rides, you’ll always be able to count on the fact that it is free of rust. We know how frustrating it can be to shop around for your vehicle only to find rust hidden somewhere.

We employ a team of buyers who venture out in search of high-quality vehicles for our inventory. They search nationwide for models that suit us. When they find something they think is a good fit, we’ll bring it back to our HQ and inspect it for quality.

Best Upgrades for Off-Road Use
The most important enhancement for off-road SUVs is lifted suspension. With it, you’ll have more ground clearance, as well as a higher vantage point to see from. In addition to that, a set of off-road tires is important, helping you gain traction in tough situations. We also recommend looking into a grille guard or at least a bull bar, as it will protect the front end of your vehicle from all kinds of damage. Four-wheel drive is also very important, especially for getting yourself out of difficult situations. No matter what kind of vehicle you drive, from a Wrangler to a Toyota truck, you’re going to want to have four-wheel drive available to you if you’re heading off-road. We can get you set up with all this and more, so be sure to get in touch with Ultimate Rides soon.
