Making Customer & Employee Health a Top Priority with Ozone Disinfectants

Making Customer & Employee Health a Top Priority with Ozone Disinfectants

Making Customer & Employee Health a Top Priority with Ozone Disinfectants   In an effort to combat the virus, JC’s British & 4x4 is using Ozone Disinfectants to sanitize vehicles and our buildings. Customer and employee safety is our top priority and we want to ensure that we are all safe. So, we are offering ozone disinfectant services to customers who are concerned with their vehicles. Come in and have a cup of coffee while we disinfect the entire inside of your vehicle. This service takes only 15 minutes of running the ozone generator in your vehicle. Our facilities are treated nightly with a two hour run time of our larger ozone generators. We still use hand sanitizers and spray disinfectants for spot treatment throughout the day as ozone can only be used in unoccupied spaces. Given what we have been told as to how easily COVID-19 can be spread it is crucial to disinfect areas that you frequently come into contact with - which include ... read more

Jaguar services added

Jaguar services added

JC's British & 4x4 is now offering expanded British car services by adding Jaguar to our fold. Since 2005 Land Rover and Jaguar have shared many drivetrain and electrical components as they were both owned by Ford at that time. And since the acquisition of both Land Rover and Jaguar by Tata Motors in 2008 they have been fully merged on a corporate and engineering level into the JLR auto group. JC's British & 4x4 is one of the few Colorado shops that has Genuine JLR diagnostic equipment and a full subscription to JLR factory information and programming, and top tier aftermarket diagnostic tools from Autologic. We invest in the factory JLR special tooling so we can follow that manufacturer's service procedures perfectly, and stock a large volume of parts to expedite our service work to get our customer's vehicle back in their hands as quickly as possible following our thorough post-service test drive. We look forward to becoming your prefer ... read more

A Brand That Inspires

A Brand That Inspires

If you would have told me a year ago that a car brand would be a life changing motivator, I would have told you that you were crazy. Since immersing myself in the Land Rover brand, I have found it to be so much more than just a vehicle.  Rather a true extension of an adventurous lifestyle.  The History of Land Rover and its dedicated followers really caught my attention. So many seemingly ordinary people taking what started as a farm truck on epic ventures. I read about people like Barbara Toy who took her Series I, Pollyanna, on solo excursions through Africa, the Middle East, across Asia, and even around the world. Later reading an article on Bristol Foster and Robert Bateman being reunited with their long-lost Grizzly Torque, a 1957 ambulance built by Land Rover, that had been lost for decades somewhere in Can ... read more

"New" Defender SWB Spyshots

"New" Defender SWB Spyshots

New spy shots of a SWB (short wheel base) Defender test mule have prompted me to write down some of my thoughts on what the "new" Defender will and won't be.  First off, It is pretty clear that we should be expecting an independent suspension in any & all new products from Land Rover. While I personally lament the loss of solid axles under the new Defender, I understand the move by Land Rover doing so as it will allow enhanced drivability in all but the most extreme terrain. Yet, when matched with the amazing traction control system developed by Land Rover it will still surpass solid axles even in extreme terrain. The drawbacks are more related to the Series & Defender purists and those looking for major lift and build modifications to the vehicle, but we can rest assured that there will be individuals, shops, and manufacturers that will come to our aid in turning the new Defender into an off road beast. Be it i ... read more

Perentie adventures – March ’17

 Perentie adventures – March ’17

Since late 2016, I’ve been working on importing an Australian Land Rover Perentie 6×6. As you may recall, we had a customer bring one in earlier in 2016, and I was pretty enamored with the vehicle. So after more research on the Perentie, I decided that the 6×6 flat bed variant would be perfect for us, as it is the only Perentie that comes with the turbocharged 3.9l Isuzu engine, and would be a great platform for any future modifications or use. Not only did I get the Perentie as a cool shop and marketing vehicle, but going through the importing process is part of the knowledge I need for our shop expansion into vehicle sales as I am hoping to bring more of these great and unique Rovers to the states. Here’s some more information from Wikipedia one the Land Rover Perentie. So, after months of waiting (th ... read more

We’re expanding!

We’re expanding!

It’s finally happening! JC’s British & 4×4 expansion has begun. It’s been nearly two years in the works, but construction has finally commenced on the building next door to our current service location. This project will allow us to expand our services offered to include used vehicle sales, accessory sales, and custom outfitting. JC’s has been working with two great companies, Rouge Architecture and Musick Built to plan out and remodel the building. The new facility will more than double our shop and parking space, and offer a large front showroom for vehicles and accessories. While construction will take most of 2017, I’m really excited to be able to offer more to our great customers in the future. Jeff C

Rover Riders inaugural run 2016 – Mosquito Pass & Half Moon Creek

Rover Riders inaugural run 2016 – Mosquito Pass & Half Moon Creek

I’ve been wanting to put together an off-road trip for quite a while, and it finally came together with a little push from a long time customer. Thanks Dirk! Ok, I’m going to back up a second and explain why the name “Rover Riders” in the title. The Rover Riders were a club and group of Land Rover off-road enthusiasts that was started many years ago. That club was absorbed by the Solihull Society, the other and still current Land Rover club in Colorado, and the name was lost. I thought the name too cool to let go, and while I have no plans to create another (or competing) club, it was perfect to put it to use as a Facebook group This trip is the 1st time I created an event in that group, and invited some friends and customers of the shop. So it came to pass, that on Saturday July 23rd, 2016, our group of 8 vehicles gathered at JC’s British & 4×4 to head out for some high altitude adventure ... read more
