Jeep parts/accessories in MA/RI/CT

I'm seriously starting to look at mods for my JK. I'm going to start with the small stuff and when it's paid off then go for mechanical stuff.

I'm looking at doors, bumpers and the like and searching all the online stores. My problem is, I want to see things in person. A picture online is ok but sometimes things are not what they seem and honestly I hate ordering and waiting for things to arrive only to find out they aren't what I want and then have to send them back.

So, anyone know of some brick and mortar stores where I can go to see and fondle Jeep parts?

I'm in SE MA so RI and CT are within my circle.

Check Crown Automotive on RT 138 in Canton. Crown historically specialized in Jeep replacement parts but have been branching out into asscessories.

Lots of stuff on the floor to see and touch.

Jeff is the guy behind the counter. He's a Jeep guy himself and supports the local wheeling community in a big way. Tell him Eric from OSJ sent you.

You might also hook up with the local clubs. Between South Shore Wheelers, USA Jeep Owners, and Ocean State Jeepsters we have a bunch of guys running built JK's. They can tell you what works and what doesn't. Plus you can see the stuff on the Jeep.

Thanks, I'll definitely check out Crown Automotive.

I've been thinking about checking out the local clubs but honestly, I've been a little scared to go all by myself.

Yeah, I know....I need to grow a spine and just do it.

Well, I registered and posted an intro on SSW. Maybe I'll get up the nerve to go to an event that is open to the public.

They are having a Toy Drive with trail ride on December 3rd. I believe the drop-off spot is in Seekonk. Hope to see you there.

Show up anyways. If nothing else drop off a toy and ride along with somebody.

I think I will at least drop off a toy and say hi.

I'll be rolling up in my awesome rental.....a blue Altima Hybrid. Kill me.
