We appreciate you taking the time today to visit our web site. Our goal is to give you an interactive tour of our new and used inventory, as well as allow you to conveniently get a quote, schedule a service appointment, or apply for financing. The search for the perfect car, truck or SUV is filled with high expectations. Undoubtedly, that has a lot to do with the vehicles you are considering, but at Ultimate Rides, we think you should also have pretty high expectations for your dealership. At the end of the day, we are two brothers trying to make a difference in the auto industry. We provide the cleanest trucks in the midwest with top notch customer service.

 — Nick Bulanda, President of Ultimate Rides


In the Midwest trucks are a number one seller. Many owners only keep their current truck for 5 years and look to upgrade to something newer and better. New trucks are expensive. Locating clean rust free trucks can be very hard here in the midwest. The demand is high yet the supply is limited.

But Ultimate Rides is here to help.

Our inventory specialist travels to various spots where trucks are available and purchases only the best. We located the cleanest rust free vehicles from Texas and California. Trucks are then brought in from these “hot spots” and then modified to make sure they are true Ultimate Rides!

But we don’t just buy and sell trucks!

Ultimate Rides has plenty of cars and SUV’s available to choose from as well as one of our favorite vehicles, the Jeep Wrangler!!!

Ultimate Rides consists of Nick Bulanda and his carefully built team who have been buying, building and selling vehicles for over fourteen years. Nick had a dream to buy, build and sell custom vehicles from rust free states. Build a business on a great reputation and always make sure customers are happy with their purchase. In the auto business that sometimes is hard to do, but year after year their business grew and five star reviews started to come in. He started his Ultimate Rides journey with his dad and two brother, who was a big part of building the business they have today. In 2016 Jake passed away and losing his brother was the hardest thing he ever had to deal with. Even though he had a tragic loss, he found employees who are like family. He plans to keep the vision and continue to set a new trend for the Chicagoland market. Keep customers number one and grow this business for their baby brother Jake.
