Why isnít there a Jeep dealer in Moab?

The population of Moab is pretty small, just over 4,000 people, but Iíve seen Jeep dealers in plenty of small towns. Tourists come here by the thousands with their Jeep rigs so you would think there would be a demand for service work of all types as well as parts. Rubicons are available for rent all over town so those fleet managers must need parts support and maybe service work (warranty claims, recalls and so forth). The nearest Jeep dealer is two hours away in Grand Junction. Canít figure this one out.

Maybe because everyone who comes to Moab and would want to buy a Jeep already has one? Or three?

Independent service shops, OTOH, should do well there.

I had the same thought.

Most people visiting Moab already purchased a Jeep (or other brand) 4x4 and likely have dreamed about how all their awesome mods they have added are going to help them on the trail.

I think stores selling shovels, hi-lift jacks and GoPros would do better than a dealership selling shiny new vehicles. Maybe a Jeep Parts and Service bay that repairs Jeep axles and shattered diffs would do well too.

They don’t want to deal with all the people claiming warranty work for wrecking their rigs off-road more likely haha
