Anyone who has owned a 4×4 can attest, one of the best parts of owning one is being able to tinker with your new toy. There is almost no part of a 4×4 Jeep that can’t be modified, enhanced, or upgraded in some way shape or form. Because of this, it is very easy to make your 4×4 Jeep the vehicle of your dreams.
In order to get the most out of our dream 4×4 it is important that you find an off-road shop that has the know-how, experience, passion, and creativity to work with you and your vision.
Our team of experts take pride in not only being off-road enthusiasts, but gearheads, as well. Having worked on many custom 4×4 mechanical projects over our careers, we have a depth of knowledge and experience to reference in order to know which upgrades, projects, and modifications work best for any 4×4 regardless of make or model. Because of this, we can ensure that your 4×4 will be equipped with exactly what it needs to perform to the best of its ability on various off-road trail types, terrain, and even within the confines of the city.
Through all of our experience, we have narrowed down to three main questions you need to answer before delving into a 4×4 modification project, or customization. Those questions are:
This is important because not all four-wheelers are created the same. It is vital to look for model specific modifications, because customizations that can be done to Jeeps may not work with a truck or other SUVs.
Simply put, if you are mostly going to be driving your 4×4 around in the city, you will require a lot less modifications to create the perfect ride than someone who plans on taking their rig out on rugged, unforgiving paths.
There are countless modifications available for your 4×4, and depending on what price range you are looking at, each modification or piece of equipment can have plenty of options, as well. Knowing what your price range is can help narrow down your 4×4 project.
There are a few reasons why people decide to get some specialized custom modifications done to their 4×4. While your project may have its own special goals in mind, there are a few common reasons to mod:
If you are looking for ways to improve your 4×4’s off-road capabilities, you are likely looking for modifications that help make your vehicle lighter and more durable.
These jobs usually start with the suspension system and work up (shocks, track bar, etc.) More ground clearance can help you navigate tough terrain more easily. However, an overhauled braking system and customized air and exhaust systems can also help with performance.
Whether it is improving the safety of your ride, or increasing its aesthetics, exterior modifications can give you what you need to protect yourself and your 4×4 while overcoming unforgiving terrain and trails. Front/rear bumpers, grill guards, a winch, and even a roll cage are all modifications that can help improve and protect your ride.
Once you have your 4×4 functioning the way you’d like it to, and you have it protected with modifications, you can always improve the interior of your ride with special customizations, as well. Whether it be aftermarket seats with extra suspension and cushioning, or something like grab handles, or entry guards, you can always improve the functionality, and comfortableness of your 4×4.
