It is amazing to me to read the complaints and "reviews" by people that obviously fall into one of two categories. 1. They couldn't by a clue. or 2. They are @ssholes themselves and are put out by someone who puts them in their place. Is it curious that the reviews are 5 stars or just ONE?

Please remember... Experience ALWAYS trumps a THEORY! Randy is by FAR one of the most knowledgeable 4X4 expert in the Nation, BECAUSE he has done it all. If you don't know what you are talking about, he will be sharp, because you obviously don't know what a locker is or how it is supposed to work, and you are lazy. So, you ask him to do some work and are displeased with the result, LIKELY because you had no idea what a new technology or piece of hardware should work. If you don't know what you are talking about, but you ACT like you do? Then he will be what some may call and @ss, and it is a GOOD thing. If you can't take it. Go get some experience breaking your 4X4, and then come back and get it right.

When I have a "good idea" or a request, I just go and ask. He either tells me why it won't work, or how to do it right, or if it is just plain stupid.

His business is called "ADVANCED Four Wheel Drive Systems"! This ain't some glorified tire shop...

I have known Randy for YEARS and NOW he is a very good friend. I feel great about taking EVERYTHING to him. He is fair, he is TOP quality, and he is honest.

And shut your mouth and listen, and he might share some of his experience with you.

Have used Advanced Four Wheel Drive a couple of times before and have an appointment tomorrow. I have been very satisfied. Nobody likes paying for repairs but at least with these guys you feel like they are experts on hubs,

I upgraded to the new suspension system that Randy is now using on the Ford E350 vans and love it.

I had the older system and he leaf springs were much shorter. The new system with the adjustable shocks make the van like a new vehicle.

I have been taking my vehicles to Randy for 14 years, (never once for the same repair). Randy has always been honest and more than fair with me with his time/knowledge and financially! Thank you Randy for always directing me with what

Pros: direct knowledge. Randy knew what my issue was.

Cons: none... maybe the poor ratings when i went to call!

OK, so I just bought a 72 Bronco. I wanted to put an ARB air locker in the front and rear. Called Advanced and asked for a technician so I can see if they do that kind of work.

This guy named Randy who must be the owner got on the phone and as I started to ask how much it costs, and how long it would take and some other general questions concerning the install - all I got was "If you need to know exactly how it is installed - then become a mechanic"...What an mother f-er - I was prepared to spend thousands of dollars for them to do this work!

Hey Randy - keep treating potential customers like sh*t and you will be out of business soon enough.

Pros: yes the knowledge is in his head - but don't expect more than yes and no answers.

Cons: hire a customer service manager b/c Randy , you are an assh*le

Do you need hard-to-find repair jobs performed on your four wheel drive vehicle/differential? Randy is your guy. He stands behind all of his work, even those people who find time to write factless reviews that are too spineless to include their real names.

Randy performs all sorts of custom four wheel drive work from differentials built to custom widths to the simple installation of lift kits. If you have any four wheel drive questions, Randy will be happy to answer them and spend the time it requires to resolve your issues. He only asks that you keep in mind that he has an extremely high volume of work, which requires and intense amount of time to complete. With that in mind, remember that the knowledge that Randy has spent 30 + years in business to aqquire did not come cheap. The work that he performs is specialized and in some cases can not be performed at any other shop in the western United States (a reverse cut Dana 80 Front differential for example!! Only one in the United States)

Getting off my high horse, keep in mind that four wheeling costs money, and information is not FREE!!

Pros: Randy is the most knowledge man in Utah when it comes to four wheel drives

Cons: Custom jobs are subject to numerous problems such as machine failures in the manufacturing process causing delays in projected finish times

.

Theres no doubt about it Randy is a no bs guy with a busy shop, so he dosen't kid glove things. I would rather have a guy know what he was doing than be a sugar baby make me feel good dude and not know a thing. If you need work done right and at a good price this is the place to take your 4x4 to...just don't expect to get a kiss on the cheek when you leave just good job well done. And as far as having a selection of used parts its going to be hard to beat his shop on that account as well...

Pros: very knowledgable, good prices, lots of parts

Cons: he aint no cupcake

I called this particular store (ADVANCED FOUR WHEEL DRIVE) with a question and spoke with Randy. I can honestly say I have never ever been treated with such disrespect by a counter sales rep. Although he did have an obvious knowledge of off road vehicles he came across as an absolute A$$. I will never spend a dime at this store and for sure wouldnt tell anyone to go there for any reason...... In a state with so many other options go to any other store and get ten times the respect and customer service ........

Pros: and a good knowledge of 4x4

Cons: he is an A$$

Randy at Advanced 4x4 is more than willing to take your money to "feed his family" but if you dare ask any questions about a 4x4 system or for advice, then expect to be treated with complete disrespect. What a complete TOOL!

Look for another shop that stands behind their work, values customer service and educating the customer. No way will I ever take my 4x4 to Advanced to do ANY work.
