upgrading your 4x4 vehicle

You’ve finally saved enough cash, your heart is set on upgrading your beloved 4x4, and you’re ready to break into a chorus of Brad Paisley’s “Mud on the Tires.” The only problem? There are so many options for sprucing up your ride that it’s overwhelming. Here’s our expert advice on what to upgrade first: 

1. Recovery Gear

Before getting flashy, go practical. There are quite a few opportunities for involuntary off-roading in Colorado, and you don’t want get caught in a mud bank with no way out. Be sure to load up on enough shackles and straps to get towed out of any “seemed-like-a-good-idea-at-the-time” situation.

2. Tires

Outfit your 4x4 with only the best tires that can withstand any adventure. We offer brands such as Toyo Tires, BFGoodrich, ProComp and more that boast the best traction, performance and durability. Add a unique look to your wheels with tires from brands such as Raceline Wheels, Ultra Wheel and so many more!

3. Lift Kit

Now on to the fun stuff. Up your truck’s game with a lift kit that can clear anything on any road. We offer 2-inch leveling and up to a 6-inch lift kit. We’ll get you all squared away with brands such as BDS, Ready Lift, Fabtech, AEV and more.

4. Protection

What’s the point of having a 4x4 if it doesn’t traverse some rough terrain every now and then? Keep your truck safe from dents and scratches with protection accessories such as skid plates, tire carriers, body armor, winch bumpers, rock sliders and rear bumpers.
