I really like Daveysjeeps.com ... If I had the money, more of it would be in his pocket

I can't say who is the best, but I can say who I won't deal with again if at all possible. 4 Wheel Drive Hardware. What a night mare?!

4x4 Group Buy: 4x4 Parts, Accessories, Tires, Fender Flares, Rubicon Express, Poison Spyder Customs -

I just received a pile of parts from these guys, and Jason is really interested in making sure you are getting all the right stuff. Their prices are way lower than any other place I have found for most items.

You should really check out Morris 4x4. They usually beat the price of the big guys but offer excellent customer service. Tell George that Andy sent you.. and he'll hook you up!

I think your question is too broad and generic. So a big "it depends" answer:

If it's an easy-to-install part that is made by a national manufacturer, and all retailers have the exact same thing, then it's down to stocking, price, shipping and service.

If it's a hard to install part, it very well may be worth ordering it through your local dealer/installer.

If it's a custom part where you want to know the guys who made it, then information from sites like this on a particular company is really useful. It makes it possible for tiny companies like Rokmen to develop nationwide followings.

I would also suggest that developing a relationship with your local dealer is a good thing. The independents may charge a few bucks more on parts, but they frequently sponsor club runs, offer knowledge, and serve as centers of the off-road community. This is something we should support with a few extra dollars when we can. (I order online too, I'm just saying...)

^^ Good point. That's why I like 4wd.com, besides the fact they have stores in the area.. their website has detailed installation instructions that can be downloaded on each part page... and also an explanation of how difficult it may be and what you'll need to install it.

why spend all that time comparing prices? Quadratec has it all, one stop shopping, they may not be the lowest all the time but they have almost everything in one spot.

You must have money to burn ... I like to see if someone is selling something for less than the other guy. If I can get the exact same part for less, then I'm buying it for less.

Disregard the SALE ENDS TODAY! They have that on all their adds. They will match prices and offer huge discounts on Rugged Ridge items plus you can take an additional 5% off you entire order at checkout. Give them a try.

I ordered a G2 complete rear axle from them and was told they would ship it out right away and I would have it in less than 7 days. 1st lie. The sales person admitted a couple days later that he knew it takes up to a month to ship since they are made to order. Conveniently they charged my credit card immediately, after claiming it wouldn't happen until the axle shipped. 2nd lie. For my inconvenience they promised me a $100 gift card, which I still haven't seen three weeks later. I also ordered gears for the front axle at the same time with an install kit. They informed me the gears were shipped, but don't show I ordered the install kit even though they charged me for it. While they are taking their time investigating it the gears and install kit show up together in one package. I inform them of this and they claim it is impossible since I never ordered the install kit. I ended up calling G2 and dealt with a guy there that was awesome. I got the axle in two weeks thanks to him. Every time I have had to call customer service (all seven times) I have had to wait a minimum of 8 minutes up to 15 minutes. They claim it is due to a heavier call load than normal. I wonder why. I have ordered from them several times in the past and never had a problem. Place a $2,600.00 order and it becomes been a nightmare! There has been a lot of complaints in the past few months on other forums about the poor customer service. Maybe they have had personnel cut backs like a lot of other companies have had and it's affecting things. I'll use the gift card, if it ever shows up, and see how things go from there, but as of now it has left a bad taste in my mouth.

I have real good luck with 4wd.com, and with a store over in Indy (real good guys too!) I'm less than 2 hours if I have parts sent to the store and I pick them up.

That has saved me a bundle in shipping fees!!

well i can understand your frustration then.. I have never had an experience like that with them, and personally i think they have the best customer service that i have dealt with yet. when i call there is always someone to answer the phone right away. I feel like i need to back them up after a story like that because i have personally had such a great relationship with them. I hope you never have to go through any night mares like that again though!

It gets better. Installing the axle toady and discovered they didn't do the disc brake upgrade for me like I asked so the seals wouldn't seat due to the wrong retaining plates. Fluid pouring out the axle tubes. I had to take it to a shop to pull the bearings and plates to switch out the plates from my stock 44. It's all back together and working so far. I look at it as they just got into the axle business and they have a few bugs to work out. On a positive note, the gift card showed up in the mail today. I'll see how using that works out.
