Gotta love those discount parts store parts

Probally the only "cheapie" part on my CJ had to be the fuel pump that died on a sunday a while back. Well it bit me in the a$$ at attica on the BBS run. Thank goodness I had made a dual pump setup a long time ago. Well it's sunday again and I was bored so I decieded to go ahead and change it. So I go to advanced and see if they have it in stock. They do. So I asked "did I happen to buy this here"? Well yes I did. So at least it was free.[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] The guy at the counter looked a little suprised when I told him I'd be right back and came back in with the pump in hand in under 2 minutes.[img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] (all I had to do was take the 2 bolts off the lines were already off) I did kinda chuckle since he didn't want to touch it because it was hot.[img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

hey rick.. yes there is a difference.. autozone has practically nothing anymore.. atleast they still have timken bearings.. but advanced will have the parts atleast.. and they sell warn products at a good price... but they mostly suck...

Re: Gotta love those discount parts store parts

I like the core policy they have, take anything in that vaguely resembles (or once resembled) the part and they will give you the core fee. I never had any luck with the master cylinders either.
