If you would rather have us upgrade your current vehicle than buy one of our custom trucks for sale, we can help you out. Give us a call to set up an appointment to bring your vehicle in! We’re located in the Chicago area, but we’ve had customers bring us their trucks from all over. That’s because our team is the best around, and we are proud of it. Our team is ASE-certified, and has a whole lot of experience working on trucks, SUVs and cars. We’d be happy to help you change the look and feel of your vehicle as soon as we can schedule you in.
Affordable Delivery for Drivers Everywhere
Despite being located in the Chicago area, more than half of all our business is done with buyers outside our area. That’s because there’s a high demand for excellent-quality custom vehicles, and we can deliver to drivers no matter where they live. The process is incredibly simple, and can all be done right over the phone. We recommend you begin by taking a look at our online inventory. From there, you can give us a call for further details on any of the models that catch your eye. We’ll let you know current availability, and can provide more photos and information on our custom trucks for sale. When you have decided which model you want, we can get into financing and shipping details.
You’ll still have a chance to customize the vehicle before we ship it out, and you’ll also have the opportunity to finance the cost of delivery if you’d rather pay for it over time. Once all the details are finalized, our team will get your vehicle ready and send it to you! The process shouldn’t take too long, so you’ll be back out on the road in an incredible new ride before you know it.
Popular Modifications for the Newest Generation of Pickups
If you have in the room in your budget, we strongly encourage you to check out some of the newer truck models available in our inventory. It should go without saying that every year huge strides are being made when it comes to the technology available in vehicles. For a while, it seemed like trucks lagged behind, but that’s no longer the case. In our opinion, there is no cooler vehicle to drive that a newer model custom pickup truck.
The first change we’d recommend to someone who wasn’t sure what upgrades to go with is a lift kit. This offers a number of advantages, which we’ll cover a little bit later in our guide. In short, you’ll find an awesome new look and feel for your truck. Nothing goes better with a lift kit than a new set of wheels and tires as well as a pair of running boards to help you get in and out. With your truck lifted, you’ll be able to go with larger wheels than you would have before.
Many newer trucks already feature LED headlights. However, if a model doesn’t, we can upgrade that for you. Additionally, we offer performance chip installation that lets you fine-tune your engine’s performance to your needs. These are all just some of the more popular examples you can find here, but there’s so much more to offer.
Rust-Free Trucks Ready for You Today
There are many things that set Ultimate Rides apart from our competition, and one that we’re particularly proud of is the quality of our inventory.

Advantages of Driving with a Lift Kit
Over the last several decades, the popularity of trucks with lift kits has skyrocketed. You would be hard-pressed to spend any significant time out on the highway without seeing a lifted truck. If you are looking to join this club, Ultimate Rides is the place to shop. Many of our trucks already come equipped with a lift kit, and we can always install one if it does not.
But you may be wondering why someone would want to lift their truck. Well, we are here to tell you. There are a number of advantages to outfitting your truck with a lift kit. For most folks, it’s as simple as offering a new aggressive look for their vehicle. Additionally, it’ll make your drives feel different, like your truck commands the road.
You’ll have the ability to install larger sets of tires and wheels on your truck as well. That is yet another primary reason people decide to upgrade. If you plan on doing any off-road driving, a lift kit can truly help you maneuver. It’ll making traversing rough terrain safer, and you’ll have less of a chance to accidentally damage your vehicle. At the end of the day, there are countless reasons why someone might upgrade, and it’s up to you to find your own.
Lift Kit Maintenance Tips
If you upgrade your truck with a lift kit, there are some steps you’ll need to take in order to maintain it. It’s not too much extra work, but it is important to take care of for your safety and the longevity of your vehicle. First, after installing a lift kit, your truck will need a steering alignment. This is because lift kits alter the base of gravity of your vehicle as well as some other factors, changing the way it handles. Additionally, on a regular basis you will want to check the vehicle’s suspension to make sure everything looks good. Things like U-joints can easily be worn down with frequent use, and may need to be replaced over time.
For drivers who don’t feel they know what to look for, you can always bring your truck to a professional. While this can be more expensive, it will ensure your safety and the life of your truck are in the hands of professionals. If you live near Ultimate Rides, we would be happy to help you keep your truck in order. Just get in touch with us to schedule maintenance.
Pickup Models to Keep an Eye Out For
Right now some truck models are hotter ticket items than others, especially if you’re looking for a newer model. One newer pickup truck that is highly sought after is the Jeep Gladiator. It’s the company’s first pickup truck in about 20 years, and so far has had an excellent showing. As always, the Ford F-150, Chevy Silverado and Ram trucks all have their fans as well.
All of these models can be found at Ultimate Rides. However, our inventory often moves quite quickly. We encourage you to give our office a call if you’d like to find out everything we currently have available. Remember that if there is a model you want but we don’t have it in stock, we are willing to go out and find it for you. If you are interested, make sure to let us know!

A: Yes! You won’t have to worry about getting in trouble driving one of these trucks. Each one is completely and totally street legal, and ready for you to drive across the country or just around your hometown.
