Tom Kennedy, the founder and owner, and a four-wheel drive hobbyist, conceived the idea for his company out of his own need. A friend got him interested in racing and working on Jeeps, and he found himself quickly falling in love with the sport. Tom frequently needed quality replacement parts that were often hard to find. His search for good suppliers resulted in the idea of providing the same service, at a reasonable price, to other four-wheel drive acquaintances–and 4WD was born in his two-car garage more than 30 years ago. Tom Kennedy is no longer with us, but his spirit lives on within the company.
In 2006, 4WD was acquired by Transamerican Auto Parts Company, LLC. Transamerican Auto Parts is one of the largest automotive aftermarket parts and accessories companies in the country, and with the addition of 4WD and Performance Products, they will now be a leader in the automotive aftermarket for Jeeps, Porsches, and Mercedes.
Transamerican operates 48 Four Wheel Parts Performance Centers in 17 states, and is poised to take 4WD to the next level.
