A quick comment about one of your vendors if I may:
I recently tries numerous suppliers to order some Bestop upper doors for my YJ. No one seems to have them, so I sent an email to Bestop.
product: YJ upper door Spice 51782-37
message: can yo tell me when these might be in stock again. Each vendor has told me they are on back order with you.
Their reply was:
I apologize but we cannot release stocking information.
Maybe I'm overly sensitive but having been in business for myself for 30+ years that seems like a very rude business communication.
Hey there, Bestop here
First off, we would like to welcome you to the forum! We are happy to have you here!!!!
In regards to your post, basically, since we donít sell direct to consumer if we have your product in stock it really isnít going to matter to your order. Most suppliers order multiple of a product to stock their warehouses or to fulfill multiple orders (a waitlist). Most wonít order just one of the product and fulfill an individual order, they tend to order in bulk.
I can tell you this product is in high demand right now and what I would suggest is fine the best price you can and get on the waitlist. With you calling around and not getting put on a list, you may have a few more people ahead of you.
I hope this information helps you out a bit, and I apologize if you felt our response was rude business communication. Let us know if you have any other questions.
