Four-wheel-drive, also known as 4×4, is the hallmark of a vehicle built for off-road performance and on-road safety, and it has also become synonymous with the Jeep brand.
In fact, Jeep has become very much the king of four-wheel-drive manufacturers, with the Jeep Wrangler being crowned “4×4 of The Decade” and the Jeep Grand Cherokee picking up the title of “the most awarded SUV ever.”
To help you get the most out of your award-winning four-wheel-drive Jeep, we’ll be looking at the different types of four-wheel-drive and when to use them.
All-Wheel-Drive Is Not Four-Wheel-Drive
Before we get started, it is important to point out that all-wheel-drive (AWD) and four-wheel-drive are not the same things. Four-wheel-drive is usually a selectable system designed to give better performance on broken terrain in low grip road conditions.
All-wheel-drive is a computer-controlled system that provides power to all four wheels at once and is always on. The computer, called [...]
Modifications go with the rugged and customizable Jeep like chocolate goes with peanut butter and it doesn’t tend to take much time before new Jeep owners start thinking about what upgrades they might be able to have fitted.
This real question is where do you start?
To help you get to grips with what upgrades are available for your Jeep, we’ve put together this guide that breaks them down into two categories, cosmetic and off-road, and then gives you the details you need to pick out your first modification.
Cosmetic upgrades tend to make your Jeep look better or add a layer of functionality that keeps your Jeep looking pristine. Some of the more common cosmetic modifications include:
A 1-3” Lift Kit
While lift kits are normally associated with off-roading, a 1-3” body lift kit doesn’t really give you the clearance you need for real off-roading. The benefit of a body lift kit [...]

Before you buy a lifted Jeep Wrangler, you should make sure you have a clear idea of how much the vehicle will cost. Many people make the mistake of just focusing on the sticker price, overlooking the fact that the average cost of any lifted Jeep Wrangler includes other fees as well as taxes. Learn about the fees you should also account for when determining what you will expect to pay for your lifted Jeep Wrangler.
Lifted Jeep Wrangler Sticker Price
The biggest chunk of the typical cost for a lifted Jeep Wrangler will be the sticker price. This varies based on the specific model that you choose as well as whether it is new or used. The price can depend on the configuration of the Jeep Wrangler, the Rocky Ridge lift package you select, and whether your chosen model has any additional features included.
It is very common to have questions about the warranty on your lifted truck. After all, warranties are incredibly useful as they save you significant money during the first few years of vehicle ownership. But the fine print in warranties means that they can be voided in certain situations. Before you buy a lifted truck or consider modifying your own vehicle, be sure that you understand the crucial warranty information so there are no surprises.
Adding a Lift Kit Voids the Manufacturer’s Warranty
Before you do anything, keep in mind that if you add a lift kit to a new truck that you bought, this will void the warranty. This is the case for every truck on the market, regardless of the lift kit that you choose to install. Even if you are a mechanic with decades of experience, completing a lift kit installation yourself will void the warranty. Do not do it unless you [...]
When driving around in a lifted Jeep Wrangler, you are in control of a highly capable truck. The Jeep Wrangler is already impressive, but the lifted version from Rocky Ridge takes this to the next level. Look at some of the best features of the lifted Jeep Wrangler suspension to better understand how this converted SUV performs so well.
Factory Replacement Coil Spring – This coil spring measures 3.5 inches taller than the factory version. It keeps some of the ride characteristics you love from the factory Jeep Wrangler spring while improving the off-road performance. The factory bump stock remains in a lifted Jeep Wrangler, but Rocky Ridge drops it down slightly, so it can keep functioning how Wrangler intended, even with the replacement coil spring.
When you visit your local dealership, you will notice the 2019 Jeep Wrangler has a few important updates to make it even better than it was before. The updates are minor since the Wrangler was all-new for the 2018 model year, which kicked off the fourth generation. As such, the Wrangler is an exciting model that can take you off-road with ease and is available in a range of options.
To make the Wrangler even more adventurous and exciting, consider a Rocky Ridge Lifted version, which will have all the enhancements you need to boost ground clearance and have even more confidence when on a trail.
2019 Jeep Wrangler Updates
Some of the key updates for this latest lifted Jeep Wrangler include a slight reduction in fuel tank capacity for two-door models. The tank previously held 18.5 gallons and now holds 17.5. To enhance the lineup, you can now get the eTorque mild hybrid system [...]
With Rocky Ridge Lifted Jeep Wranglers growing in popularity, it is common to have questions about these autos. We want you to have answers to all your questions before you buy a lifted Wrangler, so check out the answers to some of the most common questions below.
Why Would I Want to Lift My Jeep?
Everyone has a different reason for choosing to lift their Jeep Wrangler. Some appreciate the appearance of the taller stance of these vehicles, while others like the enhanced view of the road from the extra ride height. Lifted Jeeps are particularly popular for driving off-road and on rough terrain due to their additional ground clearance and the ability to use larger tires and wheels.
Is a Lifted Jeep Safe?
It is definitely safe to drive or ride in a lifted Jeep. All Rocky Ridge lifted Jeep Wranglers and trucks are built to FMVSS standards, meaning they meet the same safety [...]
The latest version of the Jeep Wrangler has already arrived at Sherry 4×4 in the form of a lifted Jeep, but so far, only the gas versions are available. We always strive to have lifted versions of the most popular Jeeps as soon as possible, which is why we are excited for the upcoming lifted Jeep Wrangler models with a diesel engine. These should arrive in 2019 once Jeep releases the diesel powertrain for the 2019 Jeep Wrangler, giving Ohio drivers and those around the country even more choices when it comes to lifted vehicles.
What We Know About the Diesel Engine
The Jeep Wrangler with a diesel powertrain will most likely arrive during the first quarter of 2019, letting us begin offering the lifted versions to drivers. This version of the Jeep Wrangler will be very similar to the latest 2019 lifted Wranglers that you can already find on our lot, but with a [...]
