Lightbulb STICKY: Good Jeep and 4x4 Shops in MD

I was interested in some shops around my area when I purchased my XJ, and I figured this would be a good source of information for the Maryland Jeep Forum. Please add any feedback on the shops listed here or post ones that are not included. Be sure to list area and contact information for the shops you list.

Credit where credit is due: thanks to HUBDEEP for providing information on some good shops in Maryland for off-road and 4x4 Jeep equipment and installation (as mentioned in this thread). He seems to know many of these guys and has good feedback on their work.


4X4 Shops:

Adrenaline Offroad - Burtonsville (Laurel), MD.
Jeff Jurgrau, owner. Great guy, amazing prices, installs available, mild to wild. We've known Jeff for about 10 years. Always supports the local clubs with prizes for holiday parties, special events, etc. Plus, he's a Jeeper and competes in the RCrocs events and is a life-long Big Dogs sponsor.
Adrenaline Off Road
301-502-6180

Adventurous 4x4 & Speed - Hagerstown, Md
Randy Wood, owner, Wayne Kendel, co-owner. I haven't had the opportunity to purchase from Randy, but we have wheeled with him. Amazing guy, always helped out at any large event we put on. From Wayne: "The Adventurous 4x4 website is going to be updated over the next few months and will have over 1000 products added to the site."
Adventurous 4x4 & SPEED
301-791-6869

Appalachian Offroad - Westminster, Md.
Mike Bosley, owner. Again, great guy, does amazing custom work with whatever you bring him: cages, axles, motor/tranny/t-case swap, buggy builds. They do it all and are extremely reasonable.
Appalachian Off Road
410-848-6922

DelMarVa Offroad - Salisbury, Md.
Mike Ferrari, owner. Sounds like a broken record, but Mike will do whatever he can to help you out. From custom CNC machining to simple gear installs, as well as nearly any product you can find in a catalogue, DOR can get it for you as well as install it.
Delmarva Offroad
443-951-5337

Mid-Atlantic 4x4 and Speed - Glen Burnie, MD
Very over-priced, cannot recommend them as I've seen lots of shoddy lift installs from that place. If you need to buy hard parts, (U-bolts, Hubs, etc), they may have them in stock. I'd have to say they are a 'speed' shop first that sells some 4x4 parts.

410-766-2727

Trick Trucks - Kensington, MD; Edgewater, MD; Waldorf, MD; Frederick, MD; Lexington Park, MD; Lanham, MD; Salisbury, MD.
Used to get my hard parts from the one in Edgewater since a buddy was a manager there. Fairly good selection on tires and wheels, used to have blems and tire deals every once in a while. Haven't been to one since the late 90's, so I can't comment on any current status of the business.
Trick Trucks


Specific shops:

Perry Hall Power Equipment - Baltimore, MD.
Used them to cut down some axles tubes and rebuild a driveshaft. Good work, pricey, and it takes a little while to get stuff back. Good work though.
(410) 391-2300

A1 Driveshafts - Baltimore, MD; Washington, D.C.
If you broke a driveshaft, need one lengthened, shortened or rebalanced, they'll do it. Great stuff. Annapolis Auto Parts delivers to their shop, so a trip to A1 isn't always necessary.

410-752-3000

Napa Auto Parts - Lots around.
We get our Warn locking hubs there. Very cheap.

There are new shops opening up every day also. I've even seen some guys do home builds with some purty awesome skillz. While this info is good (or awesome since I wrote it ), another good idea is to join a local club. Clubs in your area may also know a few guys that work out of a 'real' garage, but can also do side work.

Thanks for the props.

This is the next stage for me. I haven't been able to get my XJ on the road yet since it still needs to pass inspection and get legal. I'm actually headed to Adrenaline Off-Road tomorrow or Tuesday to get the necessary parts put on (which I would love to do myself, but winter is approaching and I have no garage). I plan on chatting with Jeff about local clubs and ideas, and I will hopefully getting involved in some of the networks around.

My buddy and I started a small Off-road Fab shop in southern York County. (15 mins north of the Maryland border) He started out building some wicked Jeeps in his own shop and I started out building Drag Cars out of mine before I got the Jeep bug. We combined our knowledge to start our own Fab shop. You can check out some of his builds his profile name is ASJAMISON and you can check out my build.
