Bought a few things from them, no problems at all. I am a member of LSJC, so they give a little discount for being in the club.

I have and really don't care for them to much. They think just because they put a 2 inch Black Mountain lift with 33 buckshot's that the Jeep is top dollar no matter the rest of it. There parts departement is a joke unless you are looking for NOS CJ parts. I had a complete brand new soft top once off a 2000 wrangler never used in the Mopar box and was told it wasn't the same quality as what they sell and that the best they would give me was 50 bucks. I sold it on craigs for 300.00 with all the hardware to go with it as well. Maybe others have had great success but, I woudn't deal with them. The service department knows little to nothing about them too. I once called to ask if a 4.0L throttle body would work on a 2.5L to gain a little more power and the head mechanic said no way that the airflow woudn't matter. I found a used 4.0L throttle body for my old Yj I sold a long time ago that worked just fine and actually gave a bit more mid range and take off. If you are ever in Texas and need good work done rather cosmetically or mechanical go see Jeep Master's in Austin Bo and Ray run the place and were 25 year Chrysler tech's before they started the business so they know Jeeps in and out. They regeard my Lj almost four years ago and its been great and were the cheapest I have found. Collin Bros don't even do regear's because they don't have good enough tech's to do it. If you need some puck spacer lifts done they do a great job lol.

From most people I talk to, unless your looking at fixing up a cj, you shouldn't waste your time with em.. they are very high on themselves..
