Welcome to Distinctive Ride:Truck Accessories in Wasilla & Viper Remote Start in Wasilla


When I started Distinctive Ride, I knew I wanted to be different from other shops. I had a long list of things I didn’t want my business to represent, but only one thing I expected from my team here at Distinctive Ride; I wanted us to be the best at what we do, while providing exquisite customer service and building a reputation of trust and respect within the community. Eight years later, those expectations are still held to this day. They are the backbone to all things Distinctive Ride. We always keep value in mind, but providing excellent results remains our number one priority.

I started out part-time, selling HIDs out of my truck in 2009. In 2010, we went full-time providing lighting, remote starts, and car audio. Over the years, Distinctive Ride has expanded to provide nearly every service available for aftermarket automotive accessories. From bedliners to window tint and everything in between, the team at Distinctive Ride has you covered.
