What part are you looking for?
Maybe someone here has run across it.

Update.

I called yesterday - they asked me all the usual info - couldn't find my order. They took my phone number and said they would call me back (does this sound familiar?). After an hour, I called them again, I got someone else on the phone. They put me on hold, and finally came back and said they had "found" my order, but it had not shipped. I about lost it. I told them to cancel the order and refund my money on my credit card. We'll see how long that takes.

I'll be making a call to BJs later this week.

Sorry, I am wrong.
I officially stand corrected.

Also not happy with Team Grand Wagoneer

Just to add my bit. I ordered a door lock assembly. After it arrived I noticed that it was way too long. Called TGW and the lady was rude, put me on hold and when she came back on the line she said, "Well you have to cut it to size" There was nothing on the website that told me cutting was required. Not a huge deal but her attitude will keep me from ordering from them ever again.

I'll put in a plug for BJ's. A few months ago I ordered a new oil pan, midplate, and a couple other items. This was done from their website. The next day, Brent called to thank me for the order. I wasn't in, my wife took the call. It shipped in a timely manner and the order was correct.

That could be bad if your wife didn't know about the order.

well the only problem i have had with teamgrandwagoneer.is well let met give you the background. my 87 gw died i figured it was the timming chain,when i pulled it ,i found that my distributor gear had 4 teeth sheered and my oil pump gears were shot. so i ordered all new parts from teamgrandwagoneer.got it all put together fired it up it backfired.so thought that it was the firing order pulled the distribtor the cam shaft gear was sheeredand everthing was new,even the timming chain.so i figured it was more enternal,like cam or crank. so i gave up on the motor.then i went out and bought 2 more jeeps. does anyboby knows what happened to the motor?as for bj's, i just ordered a heater core,after that i pm'ed bret about the discount he ajusted the order and i got the part the next day,needless to say thats great service. thanks guys

Joining the session..

BJ's has gotten almost all my money. Um, I mean, all my JEEP money (in case the wife decides to check in on me here...).
The online chat support is GREAT! And emails are responded to.

I don't do a lot of calling to vendors unless I have a specific question. I am not usually in that big of a hurry and I figure they can answer later that day or when a few minutes allow. I have sent some to other vendors and not received a response at all.

I did order a couple of small things from TGW back before I knew that BJ's website was not ALL that they carry. I did receive the order, eventually. I was not in a hurry for it, so it was not a big deal. If I had been, I probably would have noticed the weeks roll by.

The friendly folks up in western NC have been very good with communication as well. Unfortunately, I have not been able to make the pilgramage out there to get the pieces I need. I will get there eventually, probably when you have 18" of snow on the ground..

I am surpised that anyone in support industry for such a specific clientele has not joined this forum. There are other small groups out there, but I have not found one as active or as large as this one. The other vendors may be here but choose not to participate under their company name. I can understand that as well. Either way, it seems we are a rather loyal lot. We are definitely CHEAP B@st@rds, but loyal none the less!

I don't think any of our vendors are going to get rich off of us..

Picked up a bunch of good stuff at Jake's Wed. Impressive group of FSJ'S.
And Jake and Jackie are great folk to spend a day with.
If it's old and you need it, they've probably got it.

I've also shopped with Grand Wagoneers. I got the window wipes, vent window seals, and cab trim clips from them with no trouble ordering nor receiving. The aftermarket door seals didn't work well, so I cut one up to patch what I had and sent the other one back. No problem, but I'll keep BJ's in mind in the future for new stuff.

BUT, Jake is the man for used pieces.

I just placed an order with TeamGrandWagoneer.com, despite a bunch of non-love here, to get the temp control cable for my rig - not available from BJ's.

Here's to hoping it comes .

Hmm, didn't see it listed under heater parts this morning, nor found in the search results, but yup, it's there now. I'm feeling pretty stupid since I would have rather seen the money go to BJ's. Sorry, should've asked. Good news is I've got a load of parts still needed that are all available at BJ's - funding is lower than desired at the moment. Layoffs are a drag, but at least I've gotten some me-time with the Jeep - got a load of stuff done.

If you have a MJ Comanche, you should also be on ComancheClub.com. They are also a great bunch of folks and would be happy to help you locate your part. I am also a member there. ('89 Sport Truck)
