Why Get a Lift Kit on Your Truck?
At Ultimate Rides, it shouldn’t take you long to see that we love lift kits and trucks outfitted with them. While there are a vocal few, especially here on the internet, who think these kits are pointless or obnoxious, that just isn’t true. These kits become more and more popular every year, and there are plenty of benefits to owning one. If you are interested in off-road driving, lift kits allow you to do so much, and is a safer way for both you and your truck. Using a lift kit, you’ll be able to install a set of larger tires. The taller your lift kit, the bigger the tires you’ll be able to equip. This will provide drivers with more visibility over their surroundings, and will help keep the truck from hitting any rocks or other low obstacles.
You’ll also find a difference when it comes to traction. There’s a whole world of different, especially when driving on rough terrain. Once you outfit your truck with the right lift kit and a set of bigger all-terrain tires, you’ll have a whole new experience while off-roading. With larger tires, and sitting at a higher vantage point, you’ll also have more room for your suspension to sag if you’re towing something heavy. This could definitely save you from some catastrophic situations, and on top of the many other bonuses, it could be worth it to upgrade. Just make sure you pick a team you trust to install!
Something else to be aware of is that a lift kit can and will change the way you drive your truck. While a quality lift kit won’t poorly affect your vehicle’s handling or other aspects, the different positioning will be something to get used to. Once you do, however, we’re willing to bet you’ll have a hard time going back. In our opinion, sitting behind the wheel of a jacked up truck makes driving simply more enjoyable. On top of that, folks absolutely love the way they look. You can transform your truck from a standard run of the mill pickup to something that will stand out in any crowd. Get in touch with us at Ultimate Rides today if you’d like to hear more!
How to Maintain Your Lifted Truck
Once you have your new truck (or your upgraded old truck) in your possession, all that’s left to worry about is taking care of it. You don’t have to worry! In most ways, it’s exactly the same as maintaining every other truck. You know the drill: get your oil changed on time, get your fluids checked, all the regular maintenance. However, there are a few special things you’ll want to do with a lifted truck. At least once a year, preferably twice or more, you will want to have someone take a look at your suspension and make sure everything is in working order and not degrading. You shouldn’t find any major issues unless you had some problems during installation, but it never (seriously, never) hurts to be too careful.
If you want to do this maintenance yourself, there are a few things specifically that are common problem areas. Check out your tie rods, ball joints, hubs, and both idler and pitman arms frequently. Eventually, there’s a solid chance you’ll have to replace at least some of them. If you’re not sure where to take your vehicle, remember that Ultimate Rides has an expert team working on vehicles day in and day out. If you are located anywhere near the Chicago area, let us become your new go-to maintenance and repair service team!

Popular Upgrades for Jacked Up Trucks
There are a number of modifications, accessories and upgrades that go perfectly with a suspension lift. One of those accessories is a set of running boards. When you install a lift on your truck, you’ll undoubtedly have at least a slightly more difficult time climbing in or out. For some drivers or passengers, it may be flat out impossible to get in without a set of running boards for help.
Additionally, we encourage drivers to consider a set of new tires and wheels with their suspension lift. They’ll help you tackle off road situations, long road trips, snowy roads, or whatever else you expect to run into. Plus you can help push the look of your truck even further. If any of these upgrades sound interesting, just contact Ultimate Rides and leave us to it.

Frequently Asked Questions
Below we’d like to spend some time answering the most common questions we hear from customers and readers. Take a look and you might find some useful answers. If you get to the end and still need to ask us something, you can feel free to dial our office number any time we’re open. Someone from the Ultimate Rides staff should be able to help.
Q: How much should I expect to pay for a lift kit for my current truck?
A: That’s a loaded question! How much you pay depends almost entirely on what kind of kit you want, how large and how extensive you want to go. You can find budget kits for as low as $100, but if you want to outfit your truck with something like a six-inch full suspension lift kit, we recommend putting in the money and going for something high quality. This can cost upwards of $1000 or more, once again depending on exactly what you would like. Give Ultimate Rides a call and we can provide you with a more detailed estimate!
Q: I’ve installed my own lift kit at home. Is there anything I need to do next?
A: In fact, there is! After installing a lift kit, it is important to take your vehicle in for a steering alignment. Your alignment can shift along with the installation of a kit, and it might not be apparent at first. For safety purposes, you should always make sure to get an alignment, even if you don’t think it needs one.
Q: Is it better to buy a truck with a lift kit or install my own?
A: This really depends on how attached you are to your truck! Here at Ultimate Rides, as we’ve mentioned we have plenty of jacked up trucks for sale. However, we can also install one of our high-quality lift kits on your truck at a great price. So the question really is, do you feel like it’s time you got an upgrade? Either way, let Ultimate Rides help you out!
Q: What’s the difference between a suspension lift and a body lift?
A: A suspension lift kit is a lift system that actually alters your vehicle’s suspension to raise it up. These kits are more expensive and harder to install. However, they absolutely offer the best ride quality. Body lift kits don’t touch suspension. Instead they’ll use spacers or blocks to physically raise up the body of the truck. While this is alright for beginners, and is affordable and easier to install, it just won’t offer the same ride quality as a suspension lift.
