“I've had a lot of work done on custom vehicles in the past, and this is by far the best work that I've
ever experienced. The crew at C4 is extremely precise and exceptionally knowledgeable about engines,
chassis, exhaust systems and transmissions. They are able to adapt their winning background in NASCAR
to apply performance and style to any vehicle.”

“Fantastic job. They located all components prior to my bringing the truck in. They refurbished and
painted all used parts. They kept me updated on the progress and the problems they encountered. They
made some other safety upgrades while the truck was in the shop. It was a very nice professional
installation and the truck was ready when promised. I was very impressed with the installation and how
quickly they made the conversion. The truck drives like a brand new vehicle.”

bringing the history of the Colorado State Patrol back to life.”
