The factory ride-height on our Blue Ridge Atlas project just did not cut it for us off the dealer lot. With the platform being so new, we set out to develop a simple yet effective solution to gaining more ground clearance and giving the Atlas a much more imposing stature. In addition, we were looking to gain much needed clearance to fit our desired wheel and tire package to complete our upgrades.
We were able to quickly go from design concept phase to functioning prototype in an afternoon using our in-house HAAS CNC mill. Fortunately for us, we nailed it on the first try and our version 1 prototype fit like a charm. We were able to gain an additional 1.5" in ride height and make some extra space in the wheel arches for those all-terrain tires to live. All in all this is a great way to add some utility to your Atlas and separate it from the rest of the soccer SUVs.
Fit perfectly on the first shot!
The Final Product
We're extremely pleased with the final result. This is a simple and cost effective solution that really dramatically changes how the vehicle looks and, allows for a much more aggressive wheel and tire set up. With the included hardware installation is simple and straight forward, making this a must do upgrade for anyone who is even slightly interested in taking their Atlas to the next level.
