Michigan Lifted Trucks for Sale at Ultimate Rides
Though we’re located an hour south of Chicago, Ultimate Rides is still the perfect destination for you to purchase a lifted vehicle if you live somewhere else in the country, or even outside of it. If you shop through us at Ultimate Rides, we can ship your vehicle to you, and even include the cost of shipping within your financing deal. With our excellent deals, our extensive inventory of rust free trucks and our lift center that allows us to customize your ride, we think we’re a smart option for consumers everywhere.
If you’re looking for Michigan lifted models for sale, it can be difficult to find a pre-owned vehicle in good shape. With the roads covered in salt for a third of the year, and the difficult weather conditions, finding a rust free model is a small miracle on its own. That’s why we have specialized buyers who bring in vehicles from all around the country to avoid the wear and tear that comes with driving on our Midwest roads. Along with changing the locations from which we purchase our cars, we also strive to only bring in the finest pre-owned models we find. By running each vehicle through a quality inspection, we make sure we don’t sell you any lemons.
Customer Service Done Right
One of our greatest achievements at Ultimate Rides is the reputation we’ve earned among our customers. By avoiding the philosophy that seems to guide most other car dealers (getting one over on the customer), we operate with a different mentality. We treat our customers with the respect they deserve, avoiding the common clichés commonly found under the “used car salesperson” umbrella. We won’t try to sell you a vehicle you don’t want. Instead, our friendly sales team will partner with you to find and customize your perfect truck.
Ultimate Rides is a family-operated business, and we know finding Michigan lifted pickups available in quality condition can be a huge hassle. If you’re on that grind and looking for a way out, give our inventory a look. You can call our office to ask any questions that might crop up, but we think you might find that buying a car through us is surprisingly simple and cost-effective. We’re a reliable business that’s been around for over 10 years, and we’ve been around the block once or twice. If you know a great deal about pickups and lift kits, you’ll find some instant common ground with our salespeople, so don’t be afraid to give us a call.
We Can Customize Michigan Lifted Trucks for Sale
Along with our customer service reputation, another aspect of our business that we make a priority is our lift center options. If you see a vehicle you like in our inventory, but want to change the lift, tires or wheels, let us know and we can make the ride yours. If you decide to have your Michigan lifted pickup sent to our lift center, we can even include the cost as a part of your financing deal. Whether you want the body of your vehicle raised or lowered, or you want to add some huge wheels to your new baby, we have got it covered. Simply let us know what work you want done, and we can get right on it for you.
It’s not easy finding Michigan lifted trucks for sale in quite the same condition we have them in. If you are the type of driver who changes your oil twice as often as recommended, makes sure your truck is clean inside and out at all times, and constantly finds themselves tweaking with the mechanics of their vehicle, we think you’re gonna love everything we can do for you. We’ve got a steady stream of hidden gem trucks that come on and off our lot, so keep an eye out for something that stands out to you.

Buying a Truck Made Easy
At Ultimate Rides, we truly believe that the process of buying a car has become way too complicated over the years. Our company was founded over 10 years ago by three brothers who wanted to really change the way car dealers did business with their customers. That idea still acts as the company’s compass today, and along with their passion for awesome lifted trucks and high standard of quality, has built a name for Ultimate Rides as one of Chicago’s best auto dealers. We’ve been told that dealing with our sales team is a pleasure, and that compliment is something we absolutely love to hear.
We aim to provide folks like you around the world with some of the highest quality new and used lifted trucks available on the marketplace. We encourage you to keep browsing our website, but if you want to take the next step with purchasing a new or pre-owned pickup or SUV, lifted or not, you can go ahead and give our team a call to get started.

Living and Driving in the Great State of Michigan
Whether you were born and raised in MI, or you’ve made the move there in recent years, it shouldn’t take too long to familiarize yourself with the natural beauty of the state. Michigan is a great place to drive a lifted vehicle, as there so many different ways you can take advantage of it.
Your vehicle will be able to easily handle the metropolitan areas of southeast Michigan, while also being ready to tackle the wild found up north. You could even decide to cross the magnificent Mackinac Bridge and spend some time in the Upper Peninsula of the state. The UP has so much to offer adventurous drivers, and you’ll feel right at home in your lifted truck.
Your home state is a place with a lot of room to stretch out. There’s no better vehicle to experience this in than a lifted pickup. We’ll cover more of the reasons why you may want to upgrade into one of these pickup models a little bit later on in our guide. For now, it’s safe to say that it’ll improve your time spent in the state shaped like a mitten.
Sights to See in the Mitten State
We’ve already mentioned the Mackinac Bridge, but it bears repeating. If you’ve never had the pleasure to make it up to the tip of the Lower Peninsula, we highly recommend it. The Bridge is a sight to see, and crossing it is an experience you won’t soon forget. Once you make it into the UP, you’ll have countless miles of wilderness stretching out before you. From the beauty of Lake Superior’s Pictured Rocks, to the dense forests and waterfalls of the interior, there’s just so much to do and see.
The Lower Peninsula still has more than its share of fun and adventure to be had. The Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes are something that everyone should take the time to visit at some point in their life. Located in the northwest region of the Lower Peninsula, the sand dunes resting on the coast of Lake Michigan are breathtaking. There’s a scenic drive to enjoy, as well as a hiking opportunity to make your way through the dunes and onto a beautiful beach.
While there, you’ll only be a short drive from scenic Traverse City. If you’re lucky enough, you may be able to catch the city’s annual Cherry Festival, held in July year after year. There are plenty of excellent restaurants and wineries in the area, and no trip to Traverse City is complete without a stop at Moomer’s Ice Cream. Spend some time getting to know your state from the view of your lifted pickup, and you’ll be sure to have an incredible time!
Custom Upgrades Available Here
By now, you know that a wide range of pickup upgrades are waiting for you at Ultimate Rides. However, it may be worth your time to learn what some of those upgrades could be. To tell you the truth, it is hard to provide a full picture of all the options available, as there are just so many and all of them can be combined with one another. The most popular upgrade is a lift kit, which can be found on most of our inventory already. These lift kits can range in height from only a couple of inches to six inches or more. There are also different varieties of lift kits, which will provide a different feeling to drivers. Make sure to ask us if you would like to learn more about lift kits today.
Beyond a suspension lift, we could offer your current or next vehicle a custom paint job, as well as a newly re-designed interior. That includes new seating trims, technology upgrades, and so much more. There are also all the accessories we could install. That includes basics like a set of running boards or some new LED headlights, or we could go further and add on whatever else you could possibly think of.
The best part about buying your next vehicle from us is that you’ll have the opportunity to add on any of these customizations you see fit. All of it can be included in your financing deal, making it even more appealing for many. On top of that, these aren’t the only upgrades you’ll find available. There is just not room to fit them all here. For an exhaustive list of everything we can do for your current or next vehicle, make sure to reach out to the Ultimate Rides team for help. We’ll make sure to get you set up with a vehicle you love!
Benefits of Owning a Lifted Truck
Perhaps the biggest reason drivers decide to purchase a lifted vehicle is the look. It may seem superficial but it’s true, and it’s not all that superficial. The look of your pickup is important, and if you spend a lot of time inside it makes sense to want it to look great. This type of ride offers a different style than anything else you’ll find on the road. On top of that, your vehicle should be an extension of your personality. By outfitting it with a new look, it’s a little like getting a fresh lease on life in some ways.
Additionally, there are tangible performance benefits to lifted models. With the right setup, it makes the vehicle much easier to handle off-road. There’s more ground clearance, and it becomes harder to get stuck in mud and sand. That’s especially true if you have a front tow winch to pull yourself out. While in a ride such as this, you’ll also have the benefit of being able to see over many of the vehicles around you on the road. This can improve reaction time and so much more.
While there are certain safety elements to be aware of with a lifted model, like the higher point of gravity, the good outweighs any concerns. Just be sure to take your turns slowly and with care and you won’t have to worry. Contact Ultimate Rides to learn more about lifting your vehicle, different styles of lift kits, height restrictions by state and more.

Frequently Asked Questions
Before heading out, stick around to find the answers to some common questions we hear over and over again. They cover a range of topics, but the focus is around lifted trucks. If we weren’t able to get to your question, don’t be shy about reaching out over the phone. Our team is always happy to speak to both new and returning customers about our inventory, a service we offer, or anything else that relates to custom rides!
Q: What kind of maintenance does my lifted truck need, and how often?
A: A lot of drivers expect a great deal of extra maintenance to be associated with a suspension lift, but we’re happy to tell you that this isn’t really the case. The only difference in maintenance between a lifted pickup and a standard-sized model is that you’ll want to test out the tightness of all your nuts and bolts. This can be done alongside your standard oil change and regular maintenance. Depending on your mechanic, some may charge you more for a lifted truck, as it can be more difficult as well as requiring extra tools and manpower. This isn’t always the case, so it’s wise to shop around.
Q: Are lifted trucks safe to drive?
A: Absolutely. These vehicles would not be allowed on the road if they were not safe. That said, drivers do need to take extra care when in a lifted ride. Their visibility up close may be limited, and they must slow down on turns, especially sharp ones. There are also safety benefits to driving these pickups, though, including better visibility farther away. Just make sure you know what you’re getting into any time you get behind the wheel, and keep your focus on the road.
Q: How long does Ultimate Rides shipping take?
A: We’re proud to offer vehicle delivery in a week or less from the time your ride is ready. If you request custom work, that countdown will start from the time we finish. When you choose Ultimate Rides to have your vehicle shipped, you won’t have to worry about wondering where your vehicle is and when it will arrive. Our team will be very clear with you about what to expect. Just give us a call and we’ll be happy to provide more details!
Q: How can I make my truck off-road ready?
A: A lift kit is one of the most useful things you can do for an off-road vehicle. In addition to that, we recommend a good set of rugged tires, the larger the better. All terrain tires or mud tires can be a good choice, depending on your specific needs. Along with that, there are plenty of accessories that can assist you. That includes an LED light bar, a set of retractable running boards, and much more. We encourage you to get in touch with someone from the Ultimate Rides team to learn how we can get your vehicle off-road ready.
Q: What is the difference between a suspension lift kit and body lift kit?
A: A body lift kit is a more basic type of a lift kit. It will utilize a set of spacers, coil springs or something similar to raise up the body of your vehicle by a few inches. These kits won’t offer the same level of quality as a more expensive option but they can be good for beginners. A suspension lift kit actually requires altering the suspension of the vehicle to raise it up. It’s more difficult to install, and will cost quite a bit more. However, you will be much more satisfied with the end result.
Q: What is a leveling lift kit?
A: A leveling lift kit is a specific type of lift kit that raises up one end of the vehicle higher than the other. This can be useful if your vehicle has a sagging front end, which can be quite common on pickups and SUVs. A leveling kit will be able to fix that, and you can sometimes find options that will also raise the overall height of the vehicle. Be sure to let us know at Ultimate Rides if this is something you’re interested in!
