4×4 HEADQUARTERS is a self-owned company that began as a hobby in a home garage.  With growing interest in the surrounding area from family, friends and especially Janet, it soon became a reality.  In December of 2010, 4×4 Headquarters was officially opened by James McHugh.

From James’ teenage years of growing up customizing jeeps in his garage in Effingham, Illinois, to now a 2 lift/bay, shop/warehouse.  The office is staffed with 6 employees with great knowledge and information to our customers.  The fun continues daily with every after-market parts you may come up with for Jeeps, Trucks and SUV’s.  We install lifts, tires, wheels, winches, bumpers, and much much more to any 4×4 vehicle.  Installation takes place in our own shop and has brought people from all over the Midwest to us.  We deal with over 30 vendors and anticipate for internet sales to come alive.

Another importance to 4×4 Headquarters is the involvement of helping the community.  We are heavily involved in charity jeep runs to raise money for great caues.  In 2011 we raised over $12,000 for the ALS Foundation and over $6,000 for Breast Cancer Awareness.  In 2012 we have raised over $14,000 for ALS Foundation and $5500 for WYD (St. Anthony High School World Youth Day2013).  With continue to strive with great upport from our customers and strangers to gain awareness and support to the community and the fight against illnesses.

4×4 Headquarters continues to grow and we bring great ambitions for the area.  The thrill is taking a “SOMETHING” and making it into an “EVERYTHING” for our customers…eye catching along with the thrill of safety and fun.
