JB MDL boasts two Auto Hobby Shops, one at McGuire and one at Lakehurst, to keep your vehicle in safe running order. We make vehicle maintenance and repair safe, easy and affordable with the right tools and equipment to get the job done. The shops on base are equipped with the tools you need to do your own vehicle maintenance. At McGuire, our staff of qualified professionals are there to keep your ride running safe all year round. The Lakehurst shop is a do-it-yourself facility with qualified staff on hand to assist. Both shops are open to eligible ID cardholders.
