JDM Offroad was launched in 2016 after a life long obsession with finding the ultimate 4x4 van. Founder, Brian Cox, is a PNW-native, born in Alaska, who grew up in the Everett and Seattle area. After graduating in 1994, he pursued passions in skateboarding and snowboarding and ended up running chair lifts at Mt. Baker, Crystal Mountain and Mt. Hood. Eventually surfing brought Brian to buy a 1987 Astro van that he took straight to Encinitas, CA--it was his home for the next 6-months while surfing iconic waves in SoCal. Since then Brian has been pursuing a passion to import and build ideal 4x4 import vans.
