Drove home a new Wrangler

Hi Guys. I finally gave in to a life long temptation and went for a new Wrangler. LOVING IT!!! The wife never gave back the keys to my '05 Liberty Renegede, so I went hardcore Jeep with a 6-speed this time (she can't cant drive a stick). Sunburst Orange "X" with the S Package. This site looks like a lot of good guys sharing a lot of good info. I've already got my wish list of accessories picked out. For the Mopar stuff, I'm considering getting it online at JParts.com The prices are way below what the dealer wants. Any good/bad experiences out there with JParts?
Thanks

Welcome to WF. Nice looking jeep. I've got the standard and enjoy driving it as my commuter. My wife can drive a standard but she has trouble reaching the pedals! I don't expect that it will keep her from driving it though. She has driven it a few times but doesn't mind letting me have my dream car. Happy driving.

JayKay, I've just put in an order at Jparts.com. You are right, the prices seem great. I will keep you updated on my experience. If I like them the first time, I plan on making a second order within the month since there is so much to customize on these things.

The pricing is a little higher at justforjeeps.com, but if the service is better, I may order from there.

My order at Jparts.com has been in the processing stage for 3 days. Not horrible, but most on-line orders are processed within 1 now.

Thanks for the welcome guys.
The new Wrangler won't be bone stock for long. I compared prices for the goodies I wanted at Just4Jeeps, but found JParts to be lower on everything. I just finished placing the order with JParts. They've been around for awhile, so we'll see how fast the stuff gets here.

Don't hold your breath... took over 4 days to process my order and they say it "should" be ready to ship today. And I was going to order side steps from them... guess I will have to look elsewhere

After a quick talk with jparts, I was able to get my order processed the same day and add the side steps to the order (while removing shipping cost). Received the product today and it was well packed and I have no issues. I will make a post of all parts once I get time to take photos.

All-in-All if you are patient, Jparts has unbeatable prices for mopar accessories.

Just wanted to check back in on this...

JParts shipped my order within 24 hours and the UPS ground delivery arrived right on time. I'm already planning my next order.

I couldn't find lower prices for genuine Mopar Jeep accessories. JParts is actually Savage CJD in the Philadelphia area.

I've had several purchases from jparts, no problems. They are closer to Reading than to Philly.

Nice looking JK, good color. Welcome.
