Rocky Ridge Trucks, located in Franklin Springs, Georgia, has been manufacturing and customizing a host of bespoke lifted trucks from Ford, Dodge, GMC, Chevrolet, and others, for over 30 years. Offering a range of products from the mild to the wild, and known for superior quality and craftsmanship, Rocky Ridge has attracted quite a following. Race car drivers, the well-heeled yet off-road hungry, and even a rock star or two count themselves as proud owners of Rocky Ridge Trucks. Kid Rock, in particular, whose name is more than appropos, seems quite happy with his Rocky Ridge GMC K2 Sierra. Check him out below.
One of their most popular truck models is the Lifted Ford F-250 Mad Rock edition. Based on the Super-Duty line of trucks from the world's most successful maker of high-end and purpose built machines, Mad Rock takes it a step further tweaking and massaging the F-250 into something greater than the sum of its parts.
Unlike most aftermarket customizers who slap on a haphazard set of mods, Rocky Ridge strives to achieve balance and integration to their builds. Every component is hand selected and in some cases fabricated in-house to produce a coherent theme. Over years of trial and error and off-road testing, they target individual areas for upgrades and modification for durability and everyday driving use. And then it's wrapped up in a tasteful exterior package. Nice.
With the F-250 Mad Rock edition they start with a full cab version and a shortened bed of the F-250. The suspension is upgraded with a Rocky Ridge 6 inch lift kit with Nitrogen filled shocks, skid plates, and heavy duty steering knuckles. Front and rear cross members are added, shock tower extensions, and anti-wrap rear blocks.
22 inch rims and 37 inch Mickey Thompson Trail Boss tires are added along with a 4 wheel alignment and comprehensive road tuning. On the exterior, she's clad with unique Mad Rock grumpers - that's the first time I've heard that word! - accent plates, fender flares, color matched fender vents, light kit, side steps, and Rocky Ridge emblems throughout. The end result is a tasteful package that seems equally suited off-road as it is for Friday night cruises to Sonic for a shake.
They really seem to have a love for trucks and hand fabrication over at Rocky Ridge. It's nice to see a company and people with pride in their work. If you'd like to learn more about who they are and what they do, check out the video below. Buckle up.
