Lifting a Jeep is a complex procedure with a lot of working parts. When it’s done right, you can expect a lifted Jeep to have better pulling power, a greater capacity to off-road because of its increased clearance, and the ability to use a much larger set of off-road tires.
If it’s done improperly, a lift kit can result in a so-called “death wobble”, where the front axle of your Jeep tries to sheer away from the track bar, or a distinct loosening in your steering. The best way to avoid these issues is to have some idea about what you need from your lift kit going in.

For the most reliable lifted trucks and SUVs, most drivers know to turn to Rocky Ridge models, like those available at Sherry 4×4. If you love lifted Jeeps that are highly capable and ready for adventures off the road, then you will be excited to learn about the new Jeep Wrangler Rocky Ridge Mad Rock. This is the latest Rocky Ridge conversion of the Wrangler, and it is just as reliable and tough as the others are.
Get to Know the Suspension Lift Kit
Like all other Rocky Ridge conversions, the Wrangler Mad Rock begins with a suspension lift kit. In this case, it is a 3.5-inch Rocky Ridge Sport X kit that features high-performance coil springs, a high steer conversion, and Rocky Ridge 3.0 monotube shocks. This kit also replaces [...]
Take a look at the Rocky Ridge lineup available at Sherry 4×4 and you will notice a new addition, the Charlie Mike Jeep. This is the latest Rocky Ridge conversion to an existing Jeep Wrangler. People unfamiliar with military terms are frequently left wondering what exactly the name means.
A Military Term
People familiar with military terms may already know what Charlie Mike means while the average person probably will not. Charlie Mike is a common code for Continue Mission used when Special Operations talk on the radio to troop members or commanders. It applies to the Green Berets, Navy SEALs, Marine Force Recon, and more. Simply put, Charlie Mike means to keep moving forward and complete the mission no matter what, without giving up.
Living Up to Its Name
Now that you know that Charlie Mike means completing your goals without ever giving up, it makes perfect sense that a lifted and highly capable [...]
If you decide to drive a Rocky Ridge Jeep Wrangler, you will notice that one of the many conversions that the company does to create its off-road-ready SUVs is using Pure Drive Technology. This is a unique method of lifting a Jeep’s suspension, and it can make a huge difference in the ride quality.
Understanding Pure Drive Technology
The most basic description of Pure Drive Technology is Rocky Ridge’s revolutionary method for lifting a Jeep Wrangler’s suspension, but it is much more involved than this. Thanks to Rocky Ridge’s innovation, you will get the off-road capability and appearance that is associated with a lifted vehicle. Unlike most lift kits that hurt the drive and ride quality, Pure Drive Technology actually does the opposite. Instead of sticking to the industry standard when it comes to lifting a vehicle for off-roading, Rocky Ridge dared to innovate and created a system that works with the Jeep Wrangler’s natural [...]
Rocky Ridge is known for its efforts to customize various trucks and other highly capable vehicles, including off-roading SUVs. Among its various customizations are the K-2 models, which are available for nearly every type of vehicle that Rocky Ridge works with. You can enjoy a K-2 with the Jeep Wrangler, Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra, Ram 1500, or Toyota Tundra. As with all other Rocky Ridge models, the K-2 is the result of more than 30 years of experience converting vehicles to meet the needs of drivers everywhere. The exact configuration and features of your Rocky Ridge K-2 vehicle will depend on the base model, although they all share plenty of features.
Starting with the Lift Kit
One of the key features of any K-2 is the Rocky Ridge Sport Suspension Lift Kit, which will vary slightly based on the model. The Jeep Wrangler K-2, for example, has the 3.5-inch version. This includes cam [...]

When looking to get a Lifted Truck, you should understand the difference between the two options you have. When known what you get out of each, you will have an easier time deciding what you want. While true, if you don’t know what you are getting into, you are going to struggle, and here is a short guide explaining the difference between a traditional suspension lift and a body lift.
Suspension life: Without a doubt, if you have a Lifted Truck or a Lifted Jeep, you should have a suspension lift.
