Ultimate Rides is a Step Above the Rest

Would you like to know what sets Ultimate Rides apart from the competition? It’s actually simple: we listen to our customers. While many used auto dealerships and service centers out there are in it to make a quick buck however they can, we see ourselves as providing quality service and products to customers. Whether you are just giving us a call over the phone, or you’re coming in person to take a look at some of our inventory of lifted SUVs and trucks, we want you to feel like a VIP. We won’t try to push off a random vehicle on you, but instead will help you find exactly what you’re looking for, and we mean it. If there’s a vehicle you’ve been on the look out for and we don’t have it in our inventory, let us know and we’ll have our specialty buyers track one down for you with a small deposit. We have a loyal group of customers who swear up and down by our service and products, and it’s because we’ve shown that we’re trustworthy, respectful and understanding.

Changing the Industry One Sale at a Time

One of our mail goals at Ultimate Rides is to change the standard of auto dealers around the country. We know that our industry has earned quite a negative reputation over the years. Whether it’s bad customer service, unreliable vehicles, or just unpleasant experiences, there’s no end to the damage that’s been done. Anyone who has shopped with us in the past should be able to tell you that we are different. We prioritize the customer, and instead of trying to figure out what vehicle we can unload onto you, we try and help you find the perfect match. If there’s an image in your head of what you want your next truck to look like, share it with us and we can help make it a reality.

Take a look at our customer reviews online if you don’t believe what we have to say. We feel very confident that by the time you end up with your next ride from us, you’ll admit that we aren’t like standard auto dealers out there. It’s true that this industry needs a kick in the rear to get into shape, and we want to be the business that offers it. At the same time, customers will find incredible vehicles waiting with top-notch service. If you want to get started with Ultimate Rides, feel free to pay a visit to our office, or give us a call any time we’re open.

Vehicle Quality is a Major Priority at Ultimate Rides

At many other used auto dealerships, you often don’t know the quality of the vehicle you’re buying until after you’ve already taken it home and driven it around for awhile. At Ultimate Rides, that simply is not the case. All of our vehicles are brought in clean, free of rust and in great running shape. We double check these factors at multiple levels to make sure every vehicle in our inventory meets our high standards. When you buy a vehicle from Ultimate Rides, you never have to worry about whether you’ve gotten stuck with a lemon. Used vehicles are used vehicles, and that means that there’s never a 100% guarantee that something won’t go wrong down the line, but you can rest easy knowing that Ultimate Rides is not out to screw our customers.

We don’t get our vehicles from just any old place, either.  All the vehicles in our inventory are brought in from warmer and drier parts of the country to increase our chances of finding rust-free vehicles, and once they are brought back to our HQ they’re cleaned up, given a thorough inspection, and oftentimes taken over to our lift center for a little bit of custom work. You should notice right away that many of the vehicles for sale in our inventory have had a few adjustments made, with many including lift kits, custom wheels and more. That’s just one more perk of purchasing your next vehicle from Ultimate Rides. We have a distinctive style, and many folks have told us that they absolutely love our work.

Our Lift Center is Waiting for You

We’ve talked a little bit about our lift center, but now is the time to get into some of the details of what we can offer. While suspension lifts are certainly our specialty, there’s really no limit to what our team can do for a vehicle. We offer performance chips, running boards, custom sound systems, LED lighting upgrades, and so much more. Truthfully, the only limit to what we can do to your vehicle is your own imagination. How far do you want to go? There are countless combinations, meaning that the end result will almost certainly be something unique.

The first matter is figuring out your budget. That step is made easier by the fact that you can finance the cost of our custom work, letting you pay it off right alongside the vehicle you’re buying. This makes customizing your vehicle much more affordable for most folks. If you have any questions about the process, you already know who to ask! Our team is standing by ready to help.

Ultimate Rides History and Background

Ultimate Rides has been around building and selling lifted SUVs and trucks now for over 10 years, but we never forget our humble beginnings. We started out as and will always be a family business, founded by three brothers. Though one of our three brothers tragically was taken from us, our mission still remains stronger than ever and we carry the business forward in his honor.

Ever since the beginning, we’ve been steadily growing, and that growth has only increased in recent years. Back in 2017, we finished completion on our newly re-designed service and lift center, and we couldn’t be happier about how the project turned out. We have state of the art equipment and everything we need to build, modify and repair all manner of cars, trucks and SUVs out of our shop. If you’re interested in finding out any more of our services, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us today.

Benefits of Driving a Lifted Pickup Truck

The most apparent change from installing a suspension lift is a new look for your vehicle. However, there are many different reasons why people opt to raise their vehicle. One of the reasons is the ability to add larger tires and wheels. Additionally, you’ll find some distinct off-road benefits when you install a suspension lift. You’ll be seated at a higher vantage point, giving you more vision of the surrounding terrain. On top of that, having larger tires can help get you through rough terrain that you might otherwise get stuck in.

For many people, it’s impossible to go back to driving a standard suspension truck after spending too much time in a lifted model. The difference is like night and day, but it’s difficult to put into words. If you want to get a feel for what a lifted truck is like, come and visit Ultimate Rides the next chance you get. We’ll have a vehicle waiting for you!

Frequently Asked Questions

Before you leave, we wanted to take some time to answer your most pressing questions, and those that we hear from readers over and over again. Take a look below and see if we answered any of the questions you still have kicking around your head. If not, you can always get in touch with our team and we can do our best to address any of your concerns. Good luck!

Can I install a lift kit on my own? How long will it take?

While it is possible to perform a home installation on a lift kit, we would not recommend it in most situations. There are a lot of factors that could influence your decision to install at home. If you are confident you can safely complete the install, you have all the right equipment, and you do the research on the exact process, it may be possible. Just be sure you’re fully confident, as it could be a major safety complication if the installation is not completed correctly.

What is the difference between a body lift kit and suspension lift kit?

The difference between a body lift and suspension lift is the height. A body lift kit is a specific type of lift kit that utilizes spacers, coil springs or something similar to raise up the actual body of the vehicle. These kits are on the cheaper side of the spectrum, and won’t be able to offer the same ride quality or height availability as more expensive kits. Suspension kits actually require altering the suspension of your vehicle

What is a leveling lift kit?

A leveling lift kit is a specific variety of lift kit that raises up one end of the vehicle instead of the whole thing, or potentially raises up one end higher in addition to lifting the entire vehicle. This is used to fix a sag towards either the front or rear. A front-end sag is quite common on trucks and SUVs, and a leveling kit is a great way to take care of that.

Are lifted trucks safe to drive?

Lifted trucks are safe to drive. Like any vehicle, it’s important to follow strict safety regulations as there is a certain risk any time you’re on the road. The change to be aware of with a lifted vehicle is that you have a higher center of gravity. This means you’ll want to take your turns with more care. Apart from that, you’ll have no major changes to worry about.

Do lifted vehicles require any extra maintenance?

Lifted vehicles do not need much extra maintenance. There are just a few minor things to add into your regular maintenance schedule. Tire rotations will be important, and you’ll also want to check the tightness of all your control arms and front end. Something like this should be done with every other oil change. Apart from that, you shouldn’t have anything extra to worry about! The only thing to be aware of is that some mechanics may charge extra for lifted vehicles if they aren’t used to working on them.

How much does it cost to lift a vehicle?

The cost to lift a vehicle is $3,000 – 5,000. This cost depends on the lift kit brand and labor rate. We recommend getting in touch with the Ultimate Rides office and we’ll be able to give you a more accurate answer.

Will installing a lift kit or other custom upgrades void my warranty?

Lift kits will not void your warranty. When buying here at Ultimate Rides, we sell warranties that cover lifted vehicles.
