since 2014.

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.  Current owner, Ross Houk, relocated his family to Fort Collins in January 2014 to take over this location and John's 4x4 in Boulder.   At the time, the Fort Collins location was also called John's 4x4 and we decided to change the name back to it's original name by ressurecting the old vintage Fort Collins 4x4 sign that was hanging in the back of the shop.  The name was officially changed back to Fort Collins 4x4 in the spring of 2014.  It took some time, lots of hard work and getting fabulous employees for the stores to turn around.   This shop has found it's success almost entirely with word of mouth.  Our long standing staff members have been such a key to our growth as they enjoy work, provide personal service and give honest feedback on what work needs to be done.  Most people think we just do 4x4 accessories, but it has been women with minivans and compact cars who have spread the word around Fort Collins that we are just a great autoshop.   It is our greatest hope that you will feel this too when you come check us out!


The Boulder location was sold in February 2019 to a new energetic owner who will take it to new heights.  Ross is excited to fully invest in Fort Collins 4x4, our employees and our community.  Exciting new changes will be coming to Fort Collins 4x4 in 2019.
