Bringing the Automotive Experts to You!
John started working in his grandfather’s car dealership, Rush Motors, in 1978. John worked in every area of the dealership from 1978 – 1985. The dealership was sold in 1985, so John and his dad started John’s 4×4 Center in Boulder (1986) & Ft Collins (2000). John’s father left the business in 1990 to start another business, and John continued building one of the premier 4×4/Auto shops in Colorado and the Nation.
Over the years, John’s custom Jeeps, Toyota’s, and 4×4’s have been featured in several 4×4 and Auto publications. John sold the business in Aug of 2012 but is still very active in consulting & coaching in the auto industry with other shop owners. He currently manages and maintains his own large fleet of vehicles and equipment.
John has been an ASE Technician with L1 & X1 certifications. He is also an experienced ASE Service Advisor, Parts Specialist, and holds the esteemed Accredited Automotive Manager – AAM designation.
