Hell Bent on Performance & Off Road?


Established in 1980, First Capitol 4WD has been outfitting the best dressed vehicles in St. Louis with top quality products from the leading manufacturers in the automotive after market industry. We found our first home nearly twenty years ago in a two bay, 1,000 sq. ft. show room on First Capital Drive in St. Charles. Since then, First Capitol 4WD has grown in reputation, size, product selection, level of service and customer loyalty. We are known for our top quality work and our great customer services.

In 2002 feeling the need for expansion, we purchased a then bankrupt Franks Nursery and Crafts store to become one of the largest retail parts store in the Midwest.

Now located in the 8 bay, 25,000 sq. ft. facility, First Capitol 4WD (also known as Pur Performance) has more to offer than ever. With a shop fully equipped with a top of the line Dynojet chassis dyno, full Alignment rack, and custom tuning software for all Ford and late model GM vehicles, we have become known as the one stop shop for everything automotive.

We are sure to get you the parts you need with over $750,000 in inventory ans $1.5 million in parts located in our warehouses available to you in 2-3 business days. We are car people that love looking good and going fast as much as our customers, and strive to meet their demands every day. Please contact us with any questions you may have and let us know what we can do to meet your after market part needs.
