There’s a lot to take care of on your vehicle before the winter season hits. Is your battery in good shape? Have you checked the amount of window-washing fluid and the condition of your wipers? Are your brakes working properly?
Perhaps the most important vehicle components to inspect before winter are your tires. They’ll influence your vehicle’s accelerating, braking, and traction ability. Should you shell out extra cash for a set of winter tires or will your all-season tires work?
Here are important comparisons between winter tires and all-season tires that you need to know before deciding what type is best for your vehicle.
Winter tires are designed specifically to add grip to your vehicle in inclement weather conditions, such as snow, ice, and rain. They have deep treads and tread patterns that aid their grip. The tread cuts work similarly to a squeegee to help them work through slush, snow, and dampness.
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 [...]
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.

To help out, we’ve put together this beginner’s guide to lifting a Jeep.
Why Are You Lifting Your Jeep?
The first step on your road to lifting your Jeep is [...]
Choosing the right lift kit height is critical to maintaining the comfort, ride quality, and utility of your truck.
Depending on your choice of lift height, your lift kit might be as simple as spacer blocks between the body and the frame, or complicated enough to require replacement components to ensure you vehicle’s suspension geometry still works.
Picking out the right lift kit height means you’ll need to know a little bit more about how certain lift heights will affect your vehicle’s performance and what they are generally used for.
To help you, we’ve written this short guide to the different lift heights, so you’ve got all the information you need to make the correct choice.

Why Lift Your Vehicle
The primary reasons for installing a lift kit on a vehicle are aesthetics, how it looks, or for more practical purposes, such as to improve towing or off-road performance.
Have you ever been driving down the highway and been rumbled past by a lifted F150 monstrosity where the driver was sitting a full five feet above you? What about spotting a lowered pickup so close to the ground that it’s struggling to get over the speed bumps in the local Walmart parking lot?
Ever wondered why people would go to all the effort to jack their trucks up or down to such an extent, and what the benefits might be?
Well, good news! We’re here to answer your questions and to finally put to rest which is better, a lifted truck or a lowered truck.
Why Lift Your Truck?
Both lifting and lowering can be done for cosmetic purposes. Some people just prefer the look of a truck that has had its ride height significantly altered. However, out of the two options, lifting a truck can [...]
It’s been eight years since Fiat Chrysler Automobiles discontinued the Dodge Dakota and Jeep hasn’t produced a pickup truck since the XJ-based Comanche two-door bit the dust back in 1992.
So when Jeep announced they were creating a new pickup based on the hugely popular Jeep Wrangler JL, and gave us a sneak peek at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show, it would be fair to say that we got a little excited.
The new Jeep Gladiator keeps all the things you loved about the Wrangler and adds a roomy 5-foot bed, fierce off-road performance, tremendous towing power, and enough bells and whistles to keep any truck-head happy. You can even get a lifted Jeep Gladiator.
So if you are looking to a midsize pickup truck with a single cab configuration and have been anxiously waiting to find out if Jeep’s new baby is the truck for you, then your waiting is over! Here is [...]
Selecting the right 4×4 truck is a crucial decision, no matter how you plan on using the vehicle. Your 4×4 truck can be your ticket to off-road adventures, your daily driver around town, your hauling and towing machine, or your work truck. There are hundreds of possible configurations for 4×4 trucks, so it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the various options. Use the following considerations to help narrow down your options and find the right 4×4.
Things To Consider When Buying A 4×4 Truck Used Vs. New
The first thing to think about when choosing a 4×4 truck is whether a new or used model will be better suited to your needs. New models allow you to customize completely, have a full warranty, and have no previous history to worry about, giving you [...]
Shopping for a vehicle like a lifted Jeep Wrangler or Gladiator does not have to be intimidating at all. Whether you opt for a new or used auto, you will be able to find a few important lifted Jeep Wrangler discounts. When you talk to the sales team at our Sherry lifted Jeep dealership, we will gladly let you know about the various discounts and incentives that you may be eligible for. The following information can give you an idea of some of the most common sources of discounts.
One of the most common lifted Jeep Wrangler discounts that clients at our Sherry dealership use is a military discount. This is our way of showing our appreciation for service members. We appreciate all that you have done to keep the country, including the local community, [...]
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 you head to Sherry 4×4, you will notice that our selection of lifted RAM trucks has been updated. The latest models are now available on the lot, offering even more choices than before for those who prefer the height and off-road capability of a lifted truck. Our lifted RAM trucks are Rocky Ridge conversions, a brand with a long history of producing durable, reliable conversions. Explore the Rocky Ridge lifted RAMs you can find in 2019.
Based on the RAM 1500 or RAM 2500
As you consider the RAM lifted trucks, you will notice that the lifted conversions can be based on either the RAM 1500 or the RAM 2500. This lets you take advantage of a Rocky Ridge lift whether you want a full-size, light-duty pickup or a heavy-duty pickup that can tow [...]
After years of enthusiast requests and months of teasing, Jeep finally unveiled the Jeep Gladiator truck that is complete with amazing capabilities. The Jeep Gladiator is essentially a Wrangler but in pickup truck form, giving you all of the capabilities, styling, and other features of the Wrangler SUV but with the added versatility of a pickup truck.
Just like Rocky Ridge offering a range of lifted conversions for the Jeep Wrangler, it does the same for the all-new Jeep Gladiator. This way, you can enjoy the features that Jeep built right into the Gladiator as well as all the updates that you love from the Rocky Ridge conversions.
Add Rocky Ridge Jeep Wrangler Packages to Any Jeep Gladiator
Since the all new lifted Jeep Gladiators for sale are heavily based [...]
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 [...]

Let’s start with towing capabilities. The 2019 model can tow and carry more. In fact, it has best-in-class V8 towing, with a rating of 12,750 pounds. The new model also [...]

Here are some of the top-selling 2018 lifted Jeep models worth your consideration.
Jeep Wrangler K2
The Jeep Wrangler K2 is named after a mountain that is among the tallest in the world and nicknamed “Savage Mountain.” Rocky Ridge created this lifted Jeep with the goal of being able to scale that tough mountain – if you dare. The package begins with a 3.5-inch Rocky Ridge Sport Suspension Lift Kit with 2.0 dual tube shocks, a high steer conversion, e-coated high-performance coil springs, Rocky Ridge’s Pure Drive Technology, replacement sway bar end links, and more. From there, it gets [...]
Rocky Ridge has more than three decades of experience delivering high-quality durable and practical conversions that have a heavy dose of style. The latest addition is the Rocky Ridge RAM Muscle Truck, now coming to Ohio. Unlike most Rocky Ridge conversions, this is not a lift kit. Instead, the Muscle Truck delivers power, other performance upgrades, and styling to let others know what your truck is capable of.
Who Will Love the Rocky Ridge RAM Muscle Truck

Soon, you will be able to drive the lifted Jeep Wrangler JL around town or in the middle of nowhere. The latest generation of the Wrangler, the JL is filled with improvements and various enhancements to make it better than ever before. You can get the Wrangler JL with any of the Rocky Ridge conversion packages once it arrives, meeting the needs of everyone looking for a lift kit for their Jeep.
What Makes the Wrangler JL Unique?
The Wrangler JL is unique due to the fact that it is a whole new generation, involving some significant changes for the 2018 model year. The all-new Wrangler JL actually looks very similar to the previous generation until you look at the details. The windshield rake is more extreme to help with aerodynamics, and the hood has lost some forward slope. The new model has more toning overall. You will also notice that the JL is unique [...]

Throw in features like Rocky Ridge badging, full armor bumpers, synthetic rope winches, and more, and you [...]
Since Rocky Ridge trucks can be hard to find at times, most drivers have numerous questions about these vehicles, from what the lift kits do to how much experience the company has. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about Rocky Ridge Jeeps and trucks, answered to clear up your doubts.
Who Can Add a Rocky Ridge Suspension Lift Kit to My Vehicle?
A Rocky Ridge package can be added to an existing vehicle as long as it has fewer than 25,000 miles and is under two years old. However, you cannot install this package yourself. Part of the reason for Rocky Ridge’s success is that the production staff has a high level of craftsmanship and experience, ensuring the safety of all conversions. Every single member of the Rocky Ridge team undergoes training and development. Even “rookies” by these standards have done nearly 1,000 installations. The company simply can’t ensure the same quality [...]
When you head to Sherry 4×4, you will be treated to our largest inventory ever of Rocky Ridge conversions, including both Jeeps and trucks. We are your destination for Rocky Ridge, regardless of what you are looking for in your upcoming model.

We’re the Top Rocky Ridge Jeep Dealer This Year
So far in 2017, we are the number one Rocky Ridge Jeep dealer within the United States. Considering the year is almost at an end, this is quite the feat. As the number one Rocky Ridge Jeep dealer, you can expect the best selection of lifted Jeeps from Rocky Ridge [...]
As you start exploring the various lifted trucks available on the market, you will likely notice the Rocky Ridge RAM Alpine. This is one of several conversions done by Rocky Ridge, a family-run company that has been completing high-quality conversions made to last for 30 years. Like the other RAM conversions from Rocky Ridge, the RAM Alpine begins with the RAM pickup, typically the 1500 model. This means that you can expect all the features of that vehicle, with the exception of those enhanced by Rocky Ridge.
It Starts with the Lift Kit
Since the Rocky Ridge RAM Alpine is a lifted truck, the most important adjustment to it is the lift kit. This is a Rocky Ridge coil-over performance lift kit that will give your pickup the extra height you need to clear obstacles when heading off the road. It starts with e-coated rear and front cross-members and stage II front coil-over shocks. The [...]
Many people nowadays shop online before purchasing a new lifted truck. That way, they can track down the perfect vehicle and a price they are willing to pay. The internet allows people to do this without burning up several tanks of gas driving all over to one dealership and then another and still not finding what they are looking for. Some people will make the transaction over the internet and then take delivery of the vehicle. This happens more often with new lifted trucks than with older ones.
When the purchase of a new lifted truck is made over the internet, both the buyer and seller move into a new realm: that of determining the best, least expensive method of getting the vehicle from the seller to the buyer. This is particularly true if the buyer doesn’t live in the same area as the seller. In this case, there are three options for the buyer:
If you love lifted Jeeps, then you probably have heard of Rocky Ridge Trucks and admire their bumpers. Although they are just a single part of the lift kit, many people find themselves wishing they had a Rocky Ridge bumper on their Jeep to help show off the vehicle’s toughness. If you find yourself in this boat, read on to discover how to get them.
Only Available with a Kit
Unfortunately for those who want the Rocky Ridge bumpers on their Jeep but don’t necessarily care about the rest of the lift kit, they are not available as a separate option. Instead, you have to get the entire lift kit, which includes the stylish bumpers that let everyone know your Jeep is tough.
Where to Get the Lift Kit
Because Rocky Ridge prides itself on high-quality products installed by professionals, you can only get the lift kits via an official Rocky Ridge dealer like Sherry [...]
RAM will be heavily updating its pickup truck for the 2019 model year with the first look scheduled for later this year.

Between adjustments to existing trims and brand new special editions, there is a lot to look forward to.
New Limited Tungsten Edition
The biggest change for the 2018 RAM 1500 is the RAM Limited Tungsten Edition. This is the model those in search of true luxury in a powerful pickup have been waiting for, and it shows that FCA truly knows how to deliver when it comes to limited editions. The Limited Tungsten Edition is a limited version of the current Limited trim level that sits at the top of the RAM lineup. This new edition is available with a range of cabs and [...]
If you are in search of a lifted truck, consider buying it from Sherry 4×4. Our dealership has an excellent selection of lifted trucks as well as lifted Jeeps. Each of these conversions was carefully done to meet strict requirements and deliver the best possible lifted trucks. Discover just a handful of the reasons to get your lifted vehicle at Sherry 4×4.
Your Warranty Is Not Voided
Before you buy a lifted truck or lift a truck yourself, pay close attention to the warranty. In most cases, as soon as you make a serious modification such as lifting the vehicle, your truck’s warranty is voided. That can cost you thousands of dollars down the line in repairs and maintenance that are no longer covered.
None of this is a concern when you buy from Sherry 4×4. That is because all of our lift jobs are done within the warranty. In other words, when you buy [...]
Those looking for a little more from their pickup truck only need to turn to Rocky Ridge trucks. Rocky Ridge has decades of experiencing converting some of the most popular pickups into off-road-ready models with a lift kit, enhanced suspensions, and other upgrades. It isn’t hard to find reasons to buy a Rocky Ridge truck, between the experience of the conversion team, the professionally installed lift kit, the range of options, and the included warranty.
All the Benefits of a Lift Kit
Rocky Ridge conversions start with a lift kit, giving you all the benefits you would get from any other similar kit but with added confidence. The exact kit varies based on the Rocky Ridge conversion that you choose to go with, but you can expect enhancements like Rocky Ridge cross members in the front and rear, Rocky Ridge front strut tower extensions, rear coil shocks, compression struts, and brake-line relocation brackets, among others. [...]
Lifted Jeeps definitely stand out on the road, and it is clear they have their advantages when you hit the trail or want to tackle tough terrain. Just because you admire them, however, doesn’t mean you quite understand how they work. We’re here to fix this issue and explain the suspension and other adjustments made to the Rocky Ridge lifted Jeeps we sell.
Getting to Know the Replaced Components in Front
It starts with a replacement coil spring that has extra height of 3 ½ inches. Rocky Ridge makes this change to maintain the ride quality of a Jeep spring found in the factory vehicles while enhancing off-road performance. Add in a Rocky Ridge 3.0 shock absorber, which does wonders when you go off road. This absorber handles all bumps, absorbing them with ease in a way [...]
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 [...]
While regular Jeeps are exciting and off-road capable, some drivers simply need more than the average Jeep can deliver, even those that are Trail Rated. This is when lifted Jeeps come into play. With their added height, adjusted suspensions, and other enhancements, they are truly ready for adventure on or off the road. If you are in the market for a custom lifted Jeep, buying it from Sherry 4×4 makes perfect sense.
Excellent Selection of Only the Best
At Sherry 4×4, you will find an extensive selection of lifted Jeeps that offers something for everyone. We have both used and new models available and they span various model years. You can also count on the quality of our lifted Jeeps as we stock models which have been customized by Rocky Ridge, the best-respected conversion company [...]
The Jeep Wrangler is most definitely a leader when it comes to off-roading SUVs, and this model can do more than just take you off the beaten path. The Wrangler is stylish as well as capable and available with the latest features. While you know and love the current Jeep Wrangler, you should start getting excited about the 2018 and 2019 models. Sneak peeks have begun to arrive, giving us a good idea of what changes to expect. Remember that this will be the first full makeover for the model since 2007, meaning you should expect some impressive differences.
Pickup Truck Version
One of the things we do know about the upcoming all-new Jeep Wrangler is that there will be a pickup truck version whose name hasn’t yet been released. It will be based on the four-door Wrangler Unlimited and should debut in early 2019 after the all-new Wrangler SUV.
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 [...]
Most people don’t think about adding a light bar to their car since their headlights and taillights will offer more than enough lighting. That being said, if you happen to go off road or drive through areas with very poor lighting, a light bar can be an excellent way to ensure you see all of the obstacles around you. Because of this, light bars are particularly popular on 4x4s and other vehicles designed for off-roading.
When Is the Best Time to Use a Light Bar?
You will obviously only want to use a light bar at night, in storms, or in other situations where there is almost no light outside. Because of the potential for the bright lights to distract those around you, it is best to use a light bar if there are no other drivers around or they are prepared for this. Off-roading is perhaps the best use for light bars, particularly when [...]
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 [...]
Our goal at Sherry4x4 is always to provide the highest-quality conversions for our customers, whether they are close to our Ohio dealership or somewhere across the country. To do this, we offer only conversions that we can count on, including those from Rocky Ridge. This particular business is family owned and operated and has been that way throughout its entire history that spans more than three decades.
Expansion over Time
When Rocky Ridge began during the middle of the 1980s, it was a small business that specialized in creating GM conversion vans. While Rocky Ridge still creates those conversions, it has long since expanded into a specialty vehicle manufacturer with a full line. Today, its focus on conversion vans has expanded to include lifted trucks, SUVs, and even cars. Most auto enthusiasts agree that Rocky Ridge provides the highest quality of all similar companies in the industry. Rocky Ridge is still family operated and owned, but [...]
You’ve seen lifted trucks on the road occasionally, or perhaps you’ve seen them a lot when you hit the trail for an off-road adventure. These trucks require an additional investment compared to traditional trucks, but they are well worth it because of all the things they can do. A lifted truck will take the capabilities of its regular counterpart to the next level, taking you on adventures and even helping with visibility on daily drives.
All trucks give you a height advantage over other vehicles on the road, but a lifted truck takes this to the next level. When you are behind the wheel of a lifted truck, you will be able to see over or around almost every single vehicle on the road, along with other obstacles. This gives you more time [...]
Before you buy a lifted truck, you want to make sure you fully understand what you are buying. Multiple companies offer lifted trucks, but they aren’t all created equal. By asking the right questions, you can ensure that you choose a durable and high-quality lifted truck that is safe and legal, and comes with a great warranty.
How Is It Lifted? Who Performed the Modifications?
Start by asking about the actual lifting process and who did the conversion. You don’t want a truck that was lifted by some random mechanic since there is no guarantee the mechanic knows what he or she is doing. Lifted trucks from respected companies like Rocky Ridge are the best option since they have experience and numerous positive reviews.
What Options Are Available?
You should also understand which options are available for lifted trucks. Rocky Ridge, for example, has multiple packages for the various trucks it converts, including the RAM [...]
Of the many Rocky Ridge conversions available at Sherry 4×4, the RAM Stealth is among the most popular. This takes the already impressive RAM pickup and turns it into a much more capable vehicle that is ready for anything and has a strong sense of style.
Suspension Lift Kit
To help you tackle any terrain you want in your RAM Stealth, the conversions begin with a 6-inch Rocky Ridge Suspension Lift Kit. This includes a Rocky Ridge extension for the front strut tower, along with cross-members in the rear and front. It also gives you compression struts, ES 9000 rear shocks, and rear coil spacers.
