new ownership in 2014.

Our owner, Ross Houk, relocated his family to Northern Colorado in January 2014 to take over both John's 4x4 in Boulder & Fort Collins 4x4.  Anyone who has opened a business will appreciate all of the long long hours and hard hard work Ross and his team put in to turn these places around.  We have now been in business for over two & a half years and we have built a new identity as respectable, friendly and quality automotive shops!


John's 4x4 Center in Boulder has a long-standing name in the Boulder community and 4x4 industry.  This location has seen some facility upgrades and produced some amazing work, but most importantly, we have the most incredible & upstanding staff at this location.  They treat this business & our customers like family and it is because of them that we have been able to sucessfully restore the name and image at this location.  We are confident in the excellence of this shop & invite you to come in!


The Fort Collins facility, originally built as the Volvo dealership, has been a 4x4 shop for a very long time.  In 2013 the facility closed it's doors under the previous owner & was vacant for a few months.  Over ten years ago, this location was named Fort Collins 4x4 and the old vintage sign was hanging in the back begging to be brought back to life.   So, we decided to bring back the old name & start fresh!  It has been incredible to see the amazing commuity of Fort Collins rise up to support a hometown 4x4 shop.  This shop has exploded with word of mouth, positive feedback and customers sporting our stickers on the back of their vehicles.  Our staff are personable, fun and friendly at this location and it truly feels like a small town shop.  It is our greatest hope that you will feel this too when you come check us out!
