I'm looking for a Crown rear bumper/tire carrier.

4x4groupbuy.com has it for 500.00 + 125.00 S&H

knowwhere2jeep.com has it for 350.00 + 5.00 S&H

Seriously, this is so cheap I can't believe it's legit. Anyone have experience with this vendor?

EDIT: A-Z Fab has it for 399.00, so that makes me feel a little better about it.

Thanks.

That's what has me a little spooked Derek. The flat rate shipping is $5.00.



The other bumpers they have on there are pretty expensive, so maybe they are just clearing stock or something?

although in my looking around, that group buy place isnt always that much of a good deal. ive found things cheaper elsewhere. so im not at all surprised that some where could be cheaper.

I know a few others who have purchased from KW2J for their excellent 8.8 bracket kit and have been happy with the service! You can always do a chargeback on the credit card.

Thank you Burton, this is the kind of feedback I was hoping to receive before placing an order. :)

Josh I don't think I would send them the whole bundle you are planning on spending. Start with something small and see how the service is.

The guys over at know where 2 jeep are great, don't be afraid of ordering from them. I just got 5 Goodyear MTR's from them, and they even mounted and balanced them for me. I'm local, so I just stopped by and picked them up, but the $5 shipping is his actual price; its not a gimmick. I order most of my big heavy stuff from them since I can pick it up and don't have to pay shipping. They just opened up they're physical location not too long ago, but apparently they've had their site up for a bit. If you've been to the Jeep show in York, PA they are usually there. I'm relatively new to Jeeping so I've only known them for about six months or so, but I've had only good things to say about them. They're also members of PA Jeeps, if anyone is familiar with that club.

Woah, are they local to PA? Order and if you have a problem I'll stop by and drop the people's elbow



Just for some more assurance, they post over at JeepTalk and I still couldn't find a negative issue that doesn't appear resolved.

That's great news! Thanks! :)

It's just the rear bumpe/tire carrier that I want to buy from them. Not that I take spending $350 lightly.

Just to make sure everyone who reads this knows, I have no reason to believe that KW2J isn't perfectly legit, and it appears from the feedback that I've received that they are great to deal with. I wanted to make sure because they are the cheapest on the bumper, plus they only charge $5 for shipping. Shipping from another place for the same bumper is $125. Many of the other sites that I'm about to do business with charge a lot for shipping too, so the combination of cheapest price plus practically free shipping threw up a red flag for me. Wanted to check with the group before placing an order. Thanks everyone. :cool:

I've bought several times from KW2J. They were quick and good quality. I also second the above mention of Dirtworx on eBay for a great rear tire carrier. I've had mine for a year now and love it. Well built and not a single rattle.
