Any 4x4 Shops in NW Arkansas?

I hope this is the right place for this question, but I can't seem to find any here in Fayetteville. Or a wheel and tire shop that caters to offroading.

As far as 4x4 in general, I don't know of Fayetteville/Springdale, but in Bentonville, you have 2 options I know of :

1) For parts (90% of which you can order online for less) and bolt-on installs (about 50-75% of which you can probably do in your garage/driveway with limited power tools), there is 4WheelConcepts : http://www.4wheelconcepts.com/
They sort of have a bad rep of being started by some rich daddy's boy wheeler that wanted his own shop, but I've never personally heard anything negative about their work, in particular.

2) For you hardcore needs, including fabrication and the deep down building, only one place to go...Bohannans :
. They don't have a website as far as I can tell, and if you pull up to the shop, you might not even know you're there unless they have their usual 4 or 5 Jeeps sitting out front, but from what I've seen, there isn't much they can't do with a rig. I've seen CJs, YJs, TJs, XJs, and FJs (yup, them too) sitting out front, built up, as well as a few others that don't have cool designators to refer to them by.

Those are the two main shops I know of in the area. For basic DIY bolt-ons and what not, if you aren't comfortable tearing into your rig too much, your best bet is to do as many meet&greets as you can on here...it won't take long before you start to rub elbows with some very capable wrenchers on here that will usually have no problem showing a new guy a few tricks.

Thank you for the heads up on those 2 places.

What I am looking for is a place I can purchase black steelies and have them installed or at least I'll buy them online and have them put on.

Well, if that's the case, go online.

Compare pricing :

Quadratec : Steel wheels (pick your year model)
4WheelParts.com : Jus pick your bolt pattern
4wd.com : You'll have to search by brand here...ProComp and AmericanRacing each have less expensive basic black steelies.
JCWhitney.com : you can look through and see what you think.

You will probably end up paying just as much, if not more, at most shops around, for them to order them for you, because of their markup.
Check all 4 sites above and watch for free shipping deals...out of 4, 1 of them should be running a special at any time.

Then just take the wheels to your local tire shop and have them mounted/balanced...roughly 40-50$, depending on where you go.

Any trick to checking your backspacing without removing the wheel?

With a flashlight and good eyesight, you MIGHT be able to read the stamping on the inside of the wheel, depending on the size of the wheel in relation to that of your rotor assembly.

"Bad rep because his Dad helped him start a business." I happen to be personal friends with the owner and his dad and they are great people. If he was a snot nosed prick I could see the "bad rep", he's a down to earth guy. Who wouldnt want to help their son start a business?

I havent bought anything there or had them install anything (because I do it myself), but I know Jason knows his wheels etc, and they've built some awesome Yamaha Rhino's!


By the way, I think the 4x4 shop in Fayetteville is shut down. I dont know if they moved somewhere else or not, but the shop they were in on College is being remodeled.

Meh.
Like I said, I've never had them do anything. Everytime I've ever checked on a part through them, I've found that they go exactly where I would go on-line and then mark up the price.
As far as their work, again, everything I did to my TJ, I did myself, but I've just heard that 4WC mostly caters to yuppies and wannabes.
Truth be told, anything "major" I might decide to do to the BubbleJ will probably go through them.
Again, I'm just answering the op with the info I have, whether it be fact or opinion. Take it as you will.

This shop moved to Clarksville. There is another one just south of there with a sign for 4x4 called Old School but I don't know anything about them.

Jule at Bohannans is the way to go. The 4Wheelconcepts place in bentonville is great for bug deflectors and side bars....but not true off road.
