Finding an SUV available with a lift kit can be difficult if you’re only shopping at local dealerships. These rides are highly sought-after, and usually won’t stay on any lot for too long. That goes double if the ride is in great shape. No matter where you shop, it’s difficult to find an inventory full of lifted SUVs for a fair price.
That’s why shopping at Ultimate Rides can be the right move. We have an inventory full of custom SUVs and trucks, all ready for delivery across the United States. We can even ship out our custom ride beyond those borders, to places like South America, Dubai, and more. We’ve sent trucks all the way across the world in the past, and it’s a service we’re proud to provide. Additionally, we price each option very carefully. We know our customers deserve a fair price on whatever they decide to buy, and you won’t have to worry about overpaying when you visit us.

Customers everywhere love our inventory, and we’re always happy to share it with new and returning clients. You can always reach our team over the phone, or we’re happy to help you out in person if you’re near the Chicago area!
What is a Lift Kit?
A lift kit is a collection of parts that raise the height of a SUV or truck. There are a number of different kinds out there, each getting the job done in a different way or serving a different purpose. Some of the highest quality kits you can purchase are full suspension kits, which we specialize in. These will alter the suspension of your automobile, raising it up and maintaining excellent handling and drive comfort.
There are also body kits, which are more affordable but don’t often achieve the same results. These are easier to install, with some even able to be worked on at home if you have the right knowledge and skill. However, it’s always important to do plenty of research and talk to professionals before you make that kind of decision on your ride. You can also opt for a leveling kit, a type of body kit which only raises one end of the body to get it even with the other.
With many reasons to decide to purchase a lifted SUV for sale, it’s becoming more and more common with each passing year. If you decide you’d like to learn more about the process beyond what today’s guide has to offer, the Ultimate Rides team can help answer your questions.
We’re Raising the Bar When It Comes to Higher Quality Used Vehicles
Along with our prices, another way we’ve made ourselves appealing to buyers from all over is our dedication to selling high quality used sports utility vehicles and trucks. All of our available models are free of rust that covers many parts of the under body of automobiles across the Midwest and in many other places around the world. We are able to do this by sending out buyers to different places around the country to seek out the models that are up to our standards to bring back to us.
Each one undergoes a quality inspection to make sure they are up to our standards before being sold to anyone. When you purchase from Ultimate Rides, you can trust that your buying a used SUV in solid shape.
Every winter a vehicle spends driving around roads in the Midwest is another year of heavy salt damage to the body and undercarriage of the automobile. This salt causes rust, that can damage the body of the ride and make routine maintenance a nightmare. If you want your used SUV to last as long as possible, buying a model free of rust is one of the best ways to make that happen, along with regular maintenance and care.
Finding vehicles in this kind of shape is not easy in our area, so we had to think of another way to bring these rides to Chicago. From there, our popularity and the ease of the internet allowed us to expand our business to help customers everywhere find their perfect custom ride for sale.

Customer Service for a New Era
It seems plain to us that the old way of doing business for auto dealers is going out the window. The days of old fashioned sales pitches and the classic run-around are over, and we hope to help usher in a new way of buying a custom ride. In addition to the wide variety of lifted rides we have to offer, we place a huge emphasis on the way we treat our customers. When you visit or call Ultimate Rides, you’ll be able to relax and have a genuine, no-pressure conversation about what you’re looking for in an automobile. We’ll be able to show you everything we have to offer, and we don’t believe there’s any need to sell you on something you have no interest in. At the same time, we’ll always offer a fair price. Other dealerships might base their price on how much they believe they can get, but we instead put value on how much something is actually worth. Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions on the price of our trucks, including information on tax and more.
You can count on our team to go above and beyond when it comes to setting you up with a lifted model.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How much does it cost to install a lift kit?
A: While we’ve provided a more in-depth answer elsewhere on our website, in short: anywhere between $300 and $15,000 or more on trucks and SUV models. We know that’s quite a large range, but there is an equally large range of options available to you for your SUV and the various trucks out there. Some kits will only cost you a small amount, but you should limit your expectations in terms of ride quality. On the other hand, if you’re willing to spend a lot, you’ll get the best possible experience for your trucks. Many of the models in our inventory come with suspension kits pre-installed, and you only need to ask if you’d like to make an adjustment before we send it out. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions about price for our improvements!
Q: How high can a lift kit raise an SUV?
A: With the right kit, you could raise up the height of your SUV by as much as a foot. That is a pretty extreme example, but we’ve seen it before. It’s rare to see a suspension kit higher than six or maybe eight inches, especially because this may be limited by state regulations depending on where you live. Do a little bit of research before buying to make sure you fall within your state’s laws. It’s almost important to note that body kits usually max out around 3 inches, meaning that those who want to raise their trucks even higher will want to opt for a suspension upgrade at a higher price point.
Q: Do lift kits affect gas mileage?
A: It is true that a body or suspension kit will lower your vehicle’s gas mileage, but the degree of this is often overstated. With the right setup, you could only experience a loss of about a mile per gallon of gas in an SUV that’s been lifted. That’s definitely manageable, and the vast majority of custom SUV drivers feel that it’s worth every penny. You may not even notice during your regular trips to the pump, though the difference can add up over time. The higher you increase the height of your ride, however, the bigger of a difference you can expect to see in terms of fuel costs. Make sure to ask a professional about your suspension, tires, and other ways you can improve your fuel efficiency on the road if you feel concerned about the fuel efficiency of a lifted ride.
