Thumbs up for vendors

Let start listing places where we have had a positive experience, gotten a good deal or great service. There are always two sides to every story so let's do any bashing privately.

I'll start.

Took my soft top in today to get a new zipper, a couple of snaps replaced and a tear sewn up. Went here because they were the first place to pop up on google that was close to work.

Got my top back the same day, nice work and for a very fair price. Nice guys too.

Suspension work and gear work on my Jeep. Explained everything and what cost's were. I felt OK pulling money out of my pocket for once at a repair place.
Good guys

I have used Ranch Muffler in Temecula for many things over the years and they are some good guys with decent prices. They have rock sliders and step on clearance now for I think $125, I saw a stack of them just inside their door this week.

Give them a call or stop by, as soon as you walk in their door they are to the left, a stack of about 10 different ones they are getting rid of.

I thought they were pretty cool but I didn't really look that hard into them since I don't have a jeep right now.

dunno, never saw them. I called and talked to Chris, seemed like a really nice guy, very quick to answer and helpful.

Hey Rik, that Fab shop, you got stuff from them??

I went by and looked at them. They are really nice (body armor brand) but not the style I'm looking for. Those bolt to the body mount bolts and hang below the body like a nerf bar. Good quality tho'. I'm looking to CREATE clearance, not eliminate it, so those won't work. The guy there was pretty helpful tho'.

Re: the fab shop. Yes, they did some work on my Jeep and will be doing more. Mike is pretty sharp and is a great welder. They have all the fabbing toys. Just tell him I sent you (so he'll charge you more, kidding) and he will take care of you.

I had them rebuild my motor a couple of years ago. Good guys, fast and a fair price.

Did a fine job on my auto trans rebuild and only replaced the parts that needed changing.

I have never bought more than a few pieces from the scrap pile but they are always friendly and helpful and seem glad for the business. Good prices too.
