About Us


Our story began with a passion for Vanlife and a mission to solve the common problems faced by adventure enthusiasts in the U.S. Owner Brian Cox was tired of dealing with vans that broke down endlessly or were overly expensive. This frustration led him on a journey to find a better solution, and that’s when he discovered the incredible world of Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) vehicles. Since then, JDM OFFROAD has grown into a passionate team dedicated to bringing the best Japanese off-road vehicles to the U.S.


With over 8 years of experience, we know what it takes to find the best JDM vehicles from Japan. We understand the unique needs of our clients, from hardcore off-road enthusiasts to those looking for a reliable town runner.


We believe in building a community. Our customers are not just buyers; they are part of the JDM OFFROAD family. We love hearing your stories and seeing where our JDM vehicles take you. Whether you’re a seasoned adventurer or new to the world of JDM, we’re here to guide you every step of the way.

"I purchased my first JDM truck from another dealer in Shoreline. I was very let down by the lack of communication and unwillingness to answer phone calls or emails. I went to trade my truck in for another heavier duty truck and even put a deposit down on the vehicle. After close to 3 months of bi-weekly phone calls and emails, with hardly any response and an unfathomable amount of excuses why the truck wasn’t ready, I wrote them off. I stumbled across an ad for JDM Offroad. Boy, was I in for a shock! Atlas! Communication, transparency, honesty, and a smile! Brian, Cody and Yarrow were an absolute pleasure to deal with. These are people that are selling CLEAN low mileage vehicles, at close to the same cost as the third rate garbage the other dealer was peddling to unsuspecting buyers. These are people that truely love what they do, and are selling these vehicles because they are passionate about them. Not only did they take the pump off the fire truck and put a brand new aluminum bed on it, but they did it ahead of schedule. Needless to say, I am a dedicated fan and have already referred them to 6 people. I feel as if I have been adopted into a JDM enthusiast family. I cannot recommend them enough. This is how a business should be run."

“I purchased a 1996 Isuzu Elf 4x4 firetruck from JDMOffroad. I was apprehensive about purchasing an older (and unique) truck. Brian made the process much easier and answered many questions. He has built a solid knowledge base around these trucks and continues to provide assistance as needed. I highly recommend JDMOffroad for offroad Japanese trucks - particularly Isuzu Elfs, and Mitsubishi Canters.”

“My wife and I had been looking everywhere for a Toyota Hiace or equivalent camper van import. After shopping around for months for the perfect vehicle, we finally found a super clean Toyota Hiace camper van at JDM Offroad. The biggest relief was knowing that we were buying from a meticulous and honest mechanic who knows JDM vehicles inside and out, unlike most of the other importers who felt like they were just trying to hock questionable vehicles as fast as possible. We actually called around to try and find a mechanic that would do a thorough 3rd party inspection of a Hiace and multiple mechanics within a generous proximity to Everett all tried to refer us back to Brian and only had good things to say. I highly recommend working with Brian if you are hunting for a quality JDM vehicle. A+”

I'd highly recommend JDM off-road for your unique vehicle purchase. I have had several imported Vehicles over the years, so I know some of the difficulties. Brian made the process very simple. I recently purchased a 1997 Suzuki Jimny from him. The vehicle is great and I love it. He even treated me to some burgers when I picked it up haha. If you're in the market for a unique 4x4 definitely give JDM off-road a look. I was looking at two different ones, and a friend of mine ended up buying one of the other ones.
