what mailorder companies do you think are best?

I've been ordering from four wheel drive hardware, leon rosser jeep, and sometimes quadratrac. I just saw a webpage for tellico and it got me wondering how many good companies are out there that sell jeep parts and who's the best? Anyone have any outstanding good or bad experiences with these companies?

Re: what mailorder companies do you think is best?

I started with Four Wheel Drive Hardware and have had NO reason to change. I have had fantastic customer service through them, (one part of a very large order wasn't shipped, they fed-ex'ed it out and I had it the next day...radiator leaked at neck, warrantied no problem...one part was ordered wrong (my fault) and they shipped the correct part out before getting the wrong part back from me). Sometimes you can beat their prices by a few bucks here and there, but ordering from just one place makes it alot easier! I am a lifetime customer.

I like my quadratrac, especially with the front locker.

4WD and Quadatrec have been great. They are expensive but almost always have everything in stock. I've found that Quadratec seems to ship products out much faster than 4WD.

I ordered from 4 Wheel Parts Wholsalesers once, I wasn't overly impressed, with the packaging and there prices aren't that great.

I know what you're thinking. Did he fire six shots or only five?

I have always have excellent service from 4WD Hardware.
I order Superseats from Desert Rat - they shipped different seats
and took forever to correct the problem. I would never order anything
from them again. 4 Wheel parts wholesalers wasn't bad when I order from
them. Another company that I've had excellent service from is National Tire & Wheel.

Re: what mailorder companies do you think are best?

I've had one good and one bad buying experiance with Krage Motorsports the good one was the purchase of a stainless steel part. The bad experiance involved a wiper motor which didn't work,and thru numerous phone calls and e-mails they kept trying to tell me how it was my fault and then eventually told me that they recieved a bad bunch of wiper motors from thier supplier.By this time I was so pissed off that i told them to stick thier wiper motor were the sun never shines. They credited my credit card and have never sent a return sticker for postage for thier wiper motor.

Take care of the pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves.

Partsamerica handles all auto parts and a few 4x4 products.

They do mailorder, but you can also pick up at their stores. Online prices are better than in store prices.

I purchase from them quite often.

I've had great luck with fourwheel drive hardware and quadratec. Leon rosser wasnt too bad but I did have one glitch with them.
Kinda funny I just saw it mentioned above on here.............the next time it's mail order time I was going to give jeepshop a try. No reason not to give some money back to a BBS member.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
