Have used Advanced Four Wheel Drive a couple of times before and have an appointment tomorrow. I have been very satisfied. Nobody likes paying for repairs but at least with these guys you feel like they are experts on hubs, differentials and other 4WD issues. I have never had that sick feeling like when you leave a dealership with a huge bill and you feel like you were overcharged.
Upgraded suspension on E350.
I upgraded to the new suspension system that Randy is now using on the Ford E350 vans and love it.
I had the older system and he leaf springs were much shorter. The new system with the adjustable shocks make the van like a new vehicle. My wife complained about driving in the van because it hurt her back.
Now its not a problem on long trips.
I have had Advanced do all the work on the van and couldn't be more pleased.
Love my Van!. I recently had my Van converted to Four Wheel Drive. I love it! Advanced was so great to work with. Randy was very patient with me and my numerous questions. I have been so pleased with my vans ability to go off road. I recently took a trip to Southern Utah to run a relay race. We had 10 women and our gear in the van and we felt like we still had plenty room. Some of the roads got pretty hairy. It felt great to pass people in their SUV's slipping and sliding. My van performed better than I even expected. I would recommend Advanced Four Wheel Drive to anyone!
Would never go any where else.
About 1 year ago I had 4.88 gears and eaton elockers installed in my 07 jk wrangler. Well 1 year and endless days of constant beatings to my jeep wich include, Pritchett Canyon, Behind the rocks, mud boggin and 16,000 miles later my differentials and lockers still work perfect. I was recently in Moab and saw many jeeps in front of me break axles and break teeth off their ring and pinion. As I would crawl, bang or bounce up many of the obsticles I was worried my jeep would break in the same places. Thanks to Randy and the excellent work done at advanced 4 wheel drive my Jeep made it up all the obsticles and still drives like a champ.
If anyone is considerening any kind of drivertrain, axle or gear work done to their 4 wheel drive I would never go anywhere else. I would pay more to have Randy and advanced to do the work but he already charges less and does the best quality work around. Some local competitors quoted me much higher prices and have much less experienced technicians working on your vehicle.
Just wanted to say thanks again to Randy and Advanced 4 wheel drive for making my jeep do things I didnt even know it was capable of.
One last thing nothing like watching a bunch of buggies and trailer queens break down and cant make it up obstacles like Rocker Knocker and chewy on Pritchett canyon and then I just crawled up past them again thanks to the work done at Advanced.
Would not even consider anywhere else!.
I have been taking my vehicles to Randy for 14 years, (never once for the same repair). Randy has always been honest and more than fair with me – with his time/knowledge and financially! Thank you Randy for always directing me with what I will truly be happy with – never steered me wrong. There is NOBODY I trust more with my vehicles!
Based on experience: Advanced has done my leaf springs, lift, shocks, gears, ball joints, etc… The vehicle they have done the most work on, I have had for 8 years (it is still going great – even with us not being easy on it), so I can testify of the longevity of their work as well. AMAZING!!
Thank you Randy and your crew! You guys are the best!
I had a great experience.
They are by far the most knowledgeable and experienced at what they do.
I recommend them to anyone.
When only the best will do... OR When you are stumped!.
It is amazing to me to read the complaints and "reviews" by people that obviously fall into one of two categories. 1. They couldn't by a clue. or 2. They are @ssholes themselves and are put out by someone who puts them in their place.
Please remember... Experience ALWAYS trumps a THEORY! Randy is by FAR one of the most knowledgeable 4X4 expert in the Nation, BECAUSE he has done it all. If you don't know what you are talking about, he will be sharp, because you obviously don't know what a locker is or how it is supposed to work, and you are lazy. So, you ask him to do some work and are displeased with the result, LIKELY because you had no idea what a new technology or piece of hardware should work. If you don't know what you are talking about, but you ACT like you do? Then he will be what some may call and @ss, and it is a GOOD thing. If you can't take it. Go get some experience breaking your 4X4, and then come back and get it right.
When I have a "good idea" or a request, I just go and ask. He either tells me why it won't work, or how to do it right, or if it is just plain stupid.
His business is called "ADVANCED Four Wheel Drive Systems"! This ain't some glorified tire shop...
I have known Randy for YEARS and NOW he is a very good friend. I feel great about taking EVERYTHING to him. He is fair, he is TOP quality, and he is honest.
And shut your mouth, and he might share some of his experience with you.
Came highly recommended!. Randy speaks mechanic. if you dont speak it, and can admit it, just dont! trust he will be streight with you. have him give you a cost, and do busness. no questions, he will let you know what you need to know. I expected him to charge more. he will take care of your busness!!!
Customers DO NOT come first.
OK, so I just bought a 72 Bronco. I wanted to put an ARB air locker in the front and rear. Called Advanced and asked for a technician so I can see if they do that kind of work.
This guy named Randy who must be the owner got on the phone and as I started to ask how much it costs, and how long it would take and some other general questions concerning the install - all I got was "If you need to know exactly how it is installed - then become a mechanic"...What an mother f-er - I was prepared to spend thousands of dollars for them to do this work!
Hey Randy - keep treating potential customers like sh*t and you will be out of business soon enough.
Randy knows more about four wheel drive vehicles than anyone in probably the entire United States.
Do you need hard-to-find repair jobs performed on your four wheel drive vehicle/differential? Randy is your guy. He stands behind all of his work, even those people who find time to write factless reviews that are too spineless to include their real names.
Randy performs all sorts of custom four wheel drive work from differentials built to custom widths to the simple installation of lift kits. If you have any four wheel drive questions, Randy will be happy to answer them and spend the time it requires to resolve your issues. He only asks that you keep in mind that he has an extremely high volume of work, which requires and intense amount of time to complete. With that in mind, remember that the knowledge that Randy has spent 30 + years in business to aqquire did not come cheap. The work that he performs is specialized and in some cases can not be performed at any other shop in the western United States (a reverse cut Dana 80 Front differential for example!! Only one in the United States)
Getting off my high horse, keep in mind that four wheeling costs money, and information is not FREE!!
