4WheelParts False Advertisement

Went down to 4 wheel parts for their "Endless Summer Sale" i have been waiting for the last 3-4 weeks for this to get here so i can get myself some cheap JKS discos. I have been trying to stay on a budget and the advertisement was for $99.99 a pair well i get there and the guy is like 148$ it must mean "and up." No where on this add on discos does it say "and up" or "starting at" or "as low as" it strictly says $99.99 a pair. That just pisses me off getting up at 8am on Saturday to be told that.




Excuse the picture my phone seems to have gotten farsighted in its old age...


Is this not false advertisement??

The $99 ones are the quick-disconnect type that separate in the middle and are for CJ's and YJ's (leafs) only. The quick'er' disconnects are for coiled front ends and have a lot more design into them, which is why they're more expensive.

It's not false advertising at all, you were apparently just unaware that JKS makes two different types of disconnects. Still, 4WP should have put a 'part # only' somewhere with the image to prevent this from happening. Not that they aren't used to people telling them they need parts that aren't listed for their vehicles...

If all else fails, you can go over to Morris4x4 and get 10% off your order. I'm about to order from them and it takes off $14.90.

I didn't realize the 'quick' ones were for leaf-only Jeeps, either, until I checked JKS' site. I guess it makes sense, as the connecting style of the swaybars is different (horizontal vs vertical mount).

You don't want that style anyway. Get ones that stay connected to the sway bar and pivot up out of the way when disconnected. It's a PITA using the ones that have to be un-pinned from each end, wrestled off the posts and then stored somewhere till needed again.
But who knows, maybe you'll guilt them in to giving you the price...

What style would u be talking about? Name a brand ill look them up. Just doesnt seem to me like that would be a possible function for sway bar ends because they never wana match up correctly anyways. But nothing is impossible i suppose.

JKS Quicker discos remain connected to the sway bar & swing up out of the way when disconnected. You just have to use a bungee or something to tie them up.

Or if you have a stock front skid, they can mount to it while disconnected.
