We Build Jeeps - We Drive Jeeps - We Love Jeeps
In 2007, Melvin Petiet and Molly Austin along with a couple of other partners opened up Fortec Jacksonville, Inc. Through great success in the Jeep community and with the support of Fortec, Melvin and Molly decided to branch out on their own. They started Happy Trails 4x4 in February 2010.
The shop started out in a historic gas station from the 1920's located in historic Springfield downtown Jacksonville, FL. It was small but had character so that made it really cool. After the word got out about Melvin and his expertise they had no choice but to expand. They moved the shop to Atlantic Beach where they more than doubled in size. That is where you will find Melvin in his element. He is a Jeep fanatic through and through. Chrysler trained and certified, he started his career at the world famous Jasper Jeep in Georgia in the early 90's.
He is passionate for all the Jeep models; CJ, YJ, TJ, JK, XJ, WJ, ZJ, CJ-2A, and we could go on forever. Let's just say from 1941 to present he's your man for any and all of your Jeep needs.
Molly got her start in the automotive industry in the early 90's as well. She got away from it for a little while to have a solid career in the medical industry. After great success there she decided to get back to the automotive world. You might say Melvin may have had a little bit to do with that. Molly runs the office and all of the sales and marketing.
Between the two of them they provide the finest level of quality, value and service. They only use top of the line products to avoid any come backs. This is a shop you can trust for all your Jeep needs!
