Our owner, Eric Forbes has over 15 years experience in the Automotive Industry. He was trained by his father, Christopher Forbes and Father-in-Law, Ray Pinnell. Both Chris and Ray have master ASE certifications with a combined experience of over 60 years all of which has been passed down to Eric. Eric is ASE certified in several areas and is constantly updating his training with the most recent update being in Diesel Repair. Recently Eric was featured in parts and people magazine, and was also interviewed by ABC 7 action news for his experience with a vehicle high speed wobble condition called “Death Wobble”.
This same interview later went on to be recognized by a California Congresswoman, who commended Eric for his knowledge and explanation on how to correct the issue that has plagued Jeep owners for years.
Eric is dedicated to his mechanical skills and prides himself on being the “Jeep Guru” of the area. New clients frequently mention that Eric was the only one that could troubleshoot and repair their issue after many other shop’s attempts. We are proud of our reputation as experts at Jeep and 4×4 repair as well as customer satisfaction.
4×4 and More was founded in 1990 by Christopher and Roberta Forbes. Chris was a master Technician for Chrysler/Jeep/AMC for over 10 years. With a passion for 4wd and a strong commitment to customer service Chris and Roberta started a business that specialized and only repaired Jeep vehicles. In 2004 Eric Forbes (Chris’ Son) and his wife Catherine took over 4×4 and More. Eric realized that with all the different makes of 4×4′s on the road and the strong demand for lift kits and off-road enhancements that the business needed to be broadened to cater to those who didn’t just own Jeeps. Jeeps are still a strong focus of our business, but are by far not our only focus. We are still the go to guys for Jeep repair in the area and for many the only shop that they trust.
Eric and Catherine are committed to service excellence. We only hire those who we know will provide excellent and friendly customer service. People who also posses extensive knowledge of vehicle repair and the off-road industry. We invite you to come on in and familiarize yourself with our business and become part of our history in the making.
We are what we like to consider a “hybrid” 4×4 repair shop, in the way that our business is literally split in half. With dependable repair, diagnostics, and service on one side. 4×4 and off-road enhancements on the other. We believe that in order to understand the suspension modifications and enhancements that a few big name 4WD sales and installers offer, you must first become an expert in the vehicle itself. If a company is offering services that greatly change the way a vehicle drives, it is imperative that customers understand it will also change the way the vehicle needs to be maintained, as well any future problems that may arise that normally would not be an issue on a stock vehicle. It is our belief that customers deserve to be able to visit one shop to have all of their vehicle needs met, car, truck, or 4×4 it doesn’t matter. We are pleased to offer a “one stop shop” type of experience to our customers. With the addition of our new building, state of the art 14K pound lift, alignment, mounter, and balancing machines we can accurately and efficiently complete most any task that we are faced with. Plus with our friendly staff, expert mechanics, and attention to customer service that we strive so hard to achieve we are confident your first experience will be a pleasant one and surely will not be your last.
