Everest Lifted Trucks was established in 2014 with a mission to address the shortcomings prevalent in the truck up-fitting industry. Fueled by a commitment to excellence and unparalleled service, our journey began as a modest endeavor and has since evolved into the reputable brand we are today. We refuse to compromise on quality, ensuring that every customer leaves fully satisfied. Unlike others in the industry who prioritize cost-cutting measures at the expense of product integrity and customer satisfaction, Everest Lifted Trucks prioritizes authenticity and reliability.


Our team recognized the need for a superior alternative, one that champions personalized service and individualized solutions. With a dedication to crafting enduring builds using premium components, backed by our signature Everest warranty, we tailor each truck to meet the unique needs of every customer and dealership. Whether it's customizing a new vehicle or elevating a pre-owned one, our passion for trucks drives our commitment to delivering excellence in both product and service. At Everest Lifted Trucks, we don't just build trucks; we share in our customers' enthusiasm and strive to exceed their expectations at every turn.
