With a long history of conversions, Rocky Ridge has created numerous enhanced vehicles. One of its several conversions for RAM pickups is the Altitude, which includes numerous exterior updates and enhancements to the suspension, along with extra options to make it stand out even more. You can get a RAM Altitude by Rocky Ridge based on any of the RAM pickups, whether you prefer the 1500, 2500, or 3500.
The Suspension Lift Kit
The RAM Altitude builds on the standard features of a RAM model, enhancing the suspension and performance so the pickup can tackle any terrain with ease. This model is perfect for off-roading and tough roads thanks to the 6-inch Rocky Ridge Suspension Lift Kit. This particular kit includes rear coil spacers and ES 9000 rear shocks, along with compression struts. It also features cross-members in the front and rear and a front strut tower extension, which were manufactured by Rocky Ridge specifically for customizations. The RAM Altitude even features a front lift steering knuckle.
Tires to Go Off-Road
The wheels and tires of the Rocky Ridge RAM Altitude models are also better for off-roading with an increase in size and extra balancing. No matter the base RAM you choose for your Altitude, you will get 20-inch wheels coated in PVD and 37-inch all-terrain tires. The entire system is also recalibrated, and you get 4-wheel alignment plus road force balancing.
Exterior Enhancements and Badging
With the larger wheels comes an increase in ride height, which is why the RAM Altitude has wide oval step bars made from stainless steel. There are also pocket-style fender flares, which are color keyed. You should also expect plenty of unique badging to let everyone know that your RAM is a Rocky Ridge Altitude conversion. The windshield has a Rocky Ridge banner, and you get a range of emblems in chrome. These include Altitude emblems on the front door and tailgate, along with a Rocky Ridge emblem on the tailgate. The RAM Altitude can also give you the Highline Appearance Package, 4-piece rain guards, and a chrome aeroskin rain hood protector.
The RAM Altitude by Rocky Ridge is already a customized vehicle, and you will find very few of them on the road compared to RAM trucks in their regular configurations. You can make the RAM Altitude stand out even more with one of the various options. Make it even easier to get inside with power side steps, or enhance the exterior with custom fade or two-tone paint. You can opt for a spray-in bedliner to protect the truck bed or get a Flowmaster muffler system to quiet down the engine. Consider enhancing the interior with custom leather seating, woodgrain, or matte carbon fiber. There is also an available bull bar featuring LED lights.
