Euro Jeep Parts for older jeeps.

Hi all.

I needed some new parts for my '79 CJ, nothing much, window frame hinge, Temperature gauge, and i decided to treat myself to a Light bar.

Deciding to take advantage of the weak dollar against euros i shopped online to a site in USA. The total price was around $150.

but, when the postage came, it would be $250.

The $250 is for postage ONLY!! The total order would have been over $400!.

Anyone know of an Online jeep component seller in Europe, with prices in Euros.. that ships to Europe and has a website in English?? But isnt in England?.

Hi I'm Canadian but I live in Germany. I've done a lot of shipping from home to here (but no jeep parts yet...). Anyways, try getting it shipped via "ground" mail. Takes about 6 weeks but its a lot cheaper.

Also, you may be able to find an overseas moving company that can send the stuff if you have an understanding retailer. I moved everything in my house for around 1000 euros, and that included emptying my storage space, putting everything on a boat and getting it to the middle of germany... so it can be really cheap if you manage it.

yeah, but in truth you need a stateside contact to ring around etc etc, and who knows the locals...

ideally im looking for a european supplier, I found a few but they are in german, italian or spanish, my spanish is ok, but a european supplier with an online orderign system would be A1.

managed to find one site, based in France, supplies most car makes.. and it has an online brochure in english,,

http://www.frautoparts.com/

EDIT: frenchAutoParts sucks, had a jeep CJ7 1979 link, but all links = no parts.

http://www.4x4x4.com/ - Cherokee parts only. plus other marks of cars.

http://www.jeepspares.com/ - based in the U.K, says Jeeps after 1993 but only shows range rover parts.

http://www.jeepgeneration.com - in Italian, kinda sucky sucky site, catalogue shows jeep images with text, but no specifics.

http://www.4x4.internetdsl.pl/ - In polish, err, cant understand any of it

http://www.jeepparts.nl - based in holland, clicking the catalogue link takes you to a USA Site...

http://www.fortec.de/ - German Site, V limited parts for Cj's..

http://www.part-ners.com/jeep.html - quite a good site, but in french, big catalogue, also linked with magnum automotive in spain, they share catalogue.. neither speak english.

http://www.jeepparts.at/ - Austrian jeep site, in Austrian, English text button reports under construction, appears to be good but cant decifer text.

I will keep looking and ill add them as I discover them, if anyone else comes across any, please add a link..

I hear U Popol..got the same problem. If the size/weight is a bit abnormal for the couriers they make U bleed...

But there is a solution..i guess it's not a quick way, but for sure a very safe and simple one.
If you know what you want, then simply make contact with the manufacturers..and ask them for adresses of official dealers in your neighbourhood. Or ask them for more info 'bout dealers who ship within Europe...

What kind of parts do you need anyway? Perhaps there are some links 'laying around here' you might need?

Well quick update, i think i have found a supplier..

Magnum Automotive, http://www.magnum-automotive.net/index2.php although they have a site both in France (French) and Spain (Spanish) answered an Email I sent in English.

looks like my luck has changed.

Parts I wanted for a CJ7 1979 V8

Windsreen hinges (Chromed)
Windscreen visors
Fuel & Temperature Gauge Set
Oil pressure Gauge
Soft top edge holder (fits on windscreen to hold soft top in place)
lightbar

They will charge me €12.50 for delivery, although the parts prices are double that of US.

So far they have sourced all parts I need except the lightbar, which they have for a TJ and that wont fit my CJ.

On a plus note, they seem pretty knowledgeable about jeeps too, so maybe we have a winner...

Ask them: Official Spanish Jeepclub
Maybe they have some relations in the area?

nah..

The official jeep club is just that : Official

Problem is, Spain for the latter part of the twentieth century was ruled by Franco, as such it was a Dictatorship and for more than 30 years, up until the late seventies early eighties there were only 3 or 4 models of car available, thats not jeep models, thats models out of all the manufacturers..

The Jeep CJ7 was never sold officially in Spain, in fact the TJ only became released here three quarters through its life cycle.

As such, the official dealers, do not carry any spares or parts for older Jeeps, they cannot order parts from the states, even though it shows up on their catalogues, and the official jeep garages are not the place to go if you own anything other than a Cherokee, as they have no experience whatsoever.

Hence the reason i was looking on the internet.

Good idea though, normally you would be right, however Spain is kinda a bermuda triangle when it comes to anything out of the ordinary...

Don't know if you made it through the language-jungle yet...but here are some things if you want:

From what I understand the Austrian shop does deliver outside Austria. But they only mention germany and Switserland... You could e-mail them.
The one in Holland: http://www.jeepparts.nl/. Very reliable, but 'cause of the distance perhaps even more expensive then the ones u found.
This shop is also in Holland. They have a huge storage...got everything in stock. 'Even' for a CJ. (you know what I mean)
You could send them an e-mail for info. You never know...

ok then..here we go, the German connection.
(must be difficult, but there is a lot!)

fisrt one...logic: ebay germany
next..german online shop..with english-language button that works! http://www.asp-eberle.de/
styling-shop...also english. Perhaps not what you need.
This one is in german, but they got enough.
http://www.off-road-schaefer.de/
Online shop..partly in German.
It even surprised me how many online shops there are in germany wich sell Jeep parts. But I admit that most of them are very 'basic' sites with little or no additional information on shipping etc. And most are in German.
jahwol!

Good luck..if you want I'll look some more.
(but my french/spanish is very very vèry bad...didn't even try to search in those parts )

btw, how's the weather on Ibiza? Must be having a great time on the most populair holiday-island of Europe...

Hi,don't know if you managed to find a decent supplier bit you could try these:-
www.asp-eberle.de
they've been mentioned before but have updated their website(all English section).I've used them a few times in Germany and U.K and have had no problems.
ps.try to avoid main dealers(prices to make your eyes water )
