About Us

Timbukthree 4WD & Automotive was established in Englewood, Colorado in 2011 to provide an affordable and trustworthy automotive repair option for all makes and models. As the business has evolved, so too has our vision for it. We now specialize solely in Jeep, and perform modification, upgrades, rebuilds, and customization on major components (engine, transmission, transfer case, and axles), modification/customization for four-wheeling (axle re-gearing, lift kits, wheels & tires, bumpers, etc.), and offer a large selection of quality used OEM parts and new aftermarket parts. We pull, clean, and inspect all used parts prior to listing for sale, offer expertly rebuilt engines, axles, and transfer cases, and also design and build custom bumpers and other armor. 

We have combined two common automotive business models - 4x4 aftermarket customization and auto salvage/recycling - to bring the Jeep community a unique offering not often seen elsewhere in the industry. We will never talk down to you and we'll never try to upsell anything or talk you into work you don't need. We also work to keep our overhead low so we don't have crazy mark ups on prices - we're confident we have some of the best prices on Jeep parts in the state, and an extremely competitive shop labor rate. Whether you're looking to do some major wheeling and flexing in your rig, or perhaps your teenager backed into something and you're looking for an affordable replacement part, we've got you covered!

Timbukthree is veteran- and family-owned and run, and is a widely recognized name in the Jeep 4x4 community.

Our Core Values
