Where do you order parts?

What sites do you order your parts from?

Brakes,belts etc?

Trim, chrome, aesthetics?

If you can't make it better why waste your time. No use repeating the orignal mistakes. I'm to old to push it that's why.

Napa, because I work there. It means I get a killer employee discount and don't have to trust some stoned out parts slave somewhere else. Napa was always the best place in my town for finding rare AMC parts.

Unfortunately, as newer cars keep coming out, parts for the older or more rare cars are leaving the shelves to make room for newer or more common things. Our focus is the most common makes and models from 5-20 years old. By far the most common vehicle I sell parts for is a 1980-2009 Chevrolet 1/2 ton. It seems that and Ford pickups are the only vehicles I sell parts for around here. The most common engine I sell parts for? Chevrolet 350, of course.

That's why I hate Chevys: everyone has one or wants to swap parts of a Chevy into their own vehicle. A guy can have a 1972 Chevy and get any parts he needs in stock, while even basic parts for a 1972 AMC-Jeep are special order only.

Awhile back someone came in for parts for his CJ-5. I told him I was a Jeep guy and he walked me out to show me his Jeep. I complimented him on how nice it looked and he replied "If you like that, you're really gonna love this!" as he proceeded to raise the hood. I'm thinking "Built 401?" when I see a shiny brand new Chevy 383 and my face turns to an understated frown while he's rattling off horsepower and performance mod figures. Before I look up, all the local town hics are showing up in their lifted Chevy pickups and surrounding us both while praising his "dream engine" and shaking their heads in jelousy.

I wanted to scream.

Amazon.com. It has a pretty good selection of quality brands at a decent price.

I've got the Prime membership for free two-day shipping. Just takes a little advanced planning. Sometimes I buy a part I might not need. If it's cheap, I'll use it. If it's expensive, I'll mail it back for a slight loss of cash ($5).

When I need it now, I'll drag myself to AutoZone or O'Rielly's. Pep Boys if I'm really desperate. But then again, my rig isn't my daily driving, so sometimes I just have to wait, which allows me time to mellow out, put the giant hammer down, and back up two steps.

I have found these folks to be very Jeep knowledgeable, below average shipping charges, and fast delivery. They are located in walking distance from the Crown distribution center which makes them a great source for aftermarket stuff.

RockAuto.com, or my neighborhood Advance.

Napa has a lot of stuff, but they are overpriced.

WalMart for batteries and fluids.

Oconee is good for Crown and Omix stuff. I think they actually stock the stuff. They get around the drop-ship pricing that most of the other Jeep specialty retailers use, and ship for reasonable prices.

I go to BJs for hard-to-source FSJ stuff.

Rockauto for general parts usually

BJs, Craigslist, Ebay for the harder to find stuff; occasionally the for sale section on IFSJA if the timing is right

And then O'Reilly for the basics....fluids, bulbs, common parts, etc.

ZM Jeeps!

I try to use as many small local parts stores as possible. I try my best to stay away from the "if it's not in my computer system, it doesn't exist" type of parts store.

Rockauto, BJ's, and O'Really?'s (I've found they have the best selection of USA made parts for a chain parts store. Also, around here, they're the only store that doesn't have monkeys working behind the counter.)

I use Rock Auto or Napaonline.com to look numbers up then call them in.

After oconeeoffroad.com ... http://www.rockauto.com/ is good resource.

RockAuto's shipping charges are higher than Oconeeoffroad. But as far as after-market stuff... I found RockAuto had higher-quality items that the others did not carry.

in addition to the IFSJA discount, there are two things I want to mention about us (BJ's Off-Road):

1. we also now sell on amazon (we're increasing the number of items constantly)
2. when checking out on our webstore, make sure to click on the USPS option on the shipping page to see potentially lower shipping options

Last part I bought from BJ's fit in a small USPS box - and they lowered my shipping charges accordingly.

Thanks Ryan!

Well, that all depends....

* If I want it now, I first go to Advance Auto Parts.
* If Advanced doesn't have it on the shelf and can order it, I first try NAPA down the street from Advance....and of course pay more for the same thing. If NAPA doesn't have it on the shelf, I go back to Advance and order it.
* I never go to Auto Zone unless Advance or NAPA don't have it on the shelf, and its my last desperate attempt before ordering on-line.
* If Advance, NAPA or (choke) Auto Zone doesn't have it and I can wait, save money and don't need to be able to walk in and rant in someone's face for an exchange if it doesn't work, I try Rock-Auto.
* If I can't find it anywhere else locally and its rare & FSJ specific, I use BJs.
* If BJs doesn't have it, I check Team Wagoneer and cross my fingers.
* I never, never, never, never use salvage parts in general, unless its an obscure not-in-production body part.
* I will also scan "Classifieds" on this forum on occasion for FSJ specific not-in-production parts.
