4 Play Offroad Center, Inc. - Technician Jobs in Rifle, CO

About Us

4Play Off Road started because I was tired of the same day to day work at the dealerships. I started lifting and modifying trucks in 1989. I always enjoyed the work and the happiness it brought to the customer!! So in 2006 I opened 4Play Off Road. We started off doing lift kits, suspension and engine modifications to trucks, Jeeps, Toyotas, and Rock Crawlers. We gained many customers and grew. As customers learned more about my background they started asking me to repair and modify their light truck diesels that they were using to work, play and tow their rigs with. That eventually turned into our specialty, light diesel trucks, especially Dodge-Ram trucks. We still do lift kits, gears, tires, wheels, and suspension on most other vehicles also! We still enjoy what we do and love how our customers have supported us over the years and hope for many more!!
