Thumbs up Who's your favorite supplier?

I'm about to start ordering parts and upgrades for my jeep.

Wondering which suppliers you folks use and have had the best results with.
Examples: Quadratec, Morris, All things jeep, etc.?

I like Morris too the prices are competitive and since they are here in Florida shipping is super fast. Best of all the customer service is excellent and I always get the right part.

I'd like to find one closer to here in Indiana. It seems like most actual retail stores are a thing of the past.

I use extreme terrain and quadratec a lot. Quadratecs headquarters is only about 30 minutes from me so most of the time I get my order next day. But the downside to their website is they never tell you if something is out of stock. I ordered a winch from them and they sent a confrontation email saying it was out of stock and I'd have to wait. I'd i would have known that I would have gone somewhere else. So if you need a part fast they might not be the best route to go

Extreme Terrain and Northridge. Morris is also good. Allen's Offroad has treated me well also.

4WD Parts is the fastest here on the left coast.... they seem to have a great selection and it's almost always in stock...
Extreme Terrain is great and they have good customer service.... only thing I can complain about with them is it takes more than a week to get stuff to Oregon.... but good prices and if you plan ahead.... they are money...
Quadratec is also real good... I havent' had a bad experience with them yet... price is good and they have great customer service too.
Amazon....? you better know what part number you need exactly before you buy... or know exactly what you want before you hit the "buy" button.... you cannot talk to a human but returns are easy...

Hope that helps... have fun.

I try to support vendors and local businesses before I goto the big chains.

+1 plus you get face to face problem solving if your local establishment is knowledgeable.

I like Morris too. Always pleasent to work with, great pricing. I shop around as some items Morris doesn't have, but if they do have it I normally go with them.

Love the guys at Morris. Been ordering for a long time now and best part of being in FLA is regular shipping becomes overnight. I finally visited their new store and the guys were great and helpful.

I mostly use Amazon, but sometimes Quadratec.. living in NY things come next day most of the time.

I have used Morris for a couple things, but I have since stopped mostly because of how much they spam my inbox.
companies who use this tactic (when I opt out of emails) that still send them lose all credibility with me.

Yep it's nice most of the time I get a hook up and we wheel together but also worked in the offroad industry for 7 years so if I'm baffled they usually are too.

Living in Hawaii, shipping is pretty much impossible. But if you do your research and know the part numbers you are looking for, Amazon prime is your best bet. I'm sure they hate me, I've probably tripled my membership price of $100 for the year just in free shipping because of prime. Only once I was charged extra shipping, they charged me $40 to have two seats shipped. Even the brand new windshield frame that's coming tomorrow was free shipping.

Ok, cool. That's good info! I'm ordering my lift kit and stuff so I will check them out.

Do you guys find it better, when you can, to order direct from the manufacturer vs. going thru a supplier? Seems there's not much difference in prices on most things.
