About Us

Ripples Auto Body
Founded in Mount Zion in 1973, Ripple’s Auto Body, Inc. offers quality collision repair to the local community and surrounding areas. With over 70 years of combined experience, our staff of highly trained and professionally skilled employees focuses on your needs first.

As of July 2018, we are under new ownership of the Lewis Family. Michael and Traci met and married over 23 years ago while both were employed at Shelby’s Auto Body in Urbana, Illinois. Traci worked as the warranty clerk and accounts receivable, while Michael was the lead painter in the body shop.

After leaving to continue his career in the automotive paint business, he worked for Dupont Automotive Refinish /Axalta Specialty Coatings for over 23 years. Over the last twenty-some years they have raised their four grown children in the St Louis Metro East area.  When away from work they enjoy boating and lake life. Mike and Traci are proud supporters of their son in the Armed Forces.

Since their transplant to Mt. Zion, they have become proud members of the Mt. Zion Chamber of Commerce and prominent members of the community by choosing to shop locally and supporting local businesses.
