Remember I am new to Jeeps but usually buy from Summit (pick it up on the way to the airport), I will use Jegs when needed and I have used a variety on Mopar or restoration specialty companies as needed.

Careful your character's showing

I have used Quadratec, but I have heard from several people that Oconee is great.

I try to beg, borrow, steal, barter, trade and/or buy/sell from well known sources here on the CJ forum...then I go to whichever online shop has the best prices for non-stock items, for stock items no one beats Rock Auto...

I have used Rock Auto, Summit, Quadratec, Morris 4x4, and countless other vendors small and large through Ebay. I also use napaonline.com and oreillyauto.com to check prices and part numbers in case those an item would be cheaper locally, or if I think I should purchase something locally that might need to be returned.

So, it does pay to shop around. For standard items, I always check Rock Auto first because sometimes their price is super, super low. With rock you sometimes pay more for shipping if they send mutiple items from different warehouses, so that can kill the price sometimes especially if they send a 99 cent gasket from one place even though a $59 part is coming from elsewhere.

I usually pull up Qtec, Morris, and 4wd sites when I'm ordering parts, and find that Morris is usually cheaper than the others. It helps that they offer a discount for Military/ Police/ FF. I did order a part from Qtec after a thread here talked about issues with them, and had great service.

I fab many parts myself except for things like ring & pinions coil over shocks, joints heims and springs, etc;
Summit, Jegs or Polyperformance... If I don't need it for a month or more and 4 Wheel Parts has the best price (with discount) I order it from them. If you deal with 4 Wheel Parts in person watch them carefully, the counter personnel seem to be autozone/checker graduates and will some times steer you into parts that are; more expensive, wrong, not what you wanted, or claim parts like thin reverse cut 5.38 ring and pinions do not exist.
In the rare event that I might actually need a Jeep part I usually need it NOW so I just drive across town to Predator 4wd (local shop).
When I need Ford/Chevy parts for my Jeep I hit the local U-Pull-and-Pay yard or one of the junk parts stores (autozone/oreilies etc). (When I get frustrated with the ignorant/knownothing personnel at the junk parts stores I go to NAPA).
If I need something off the wall (like a left hand nut or specialty tube connector) I go to Grainger or order from McMaster-Carr.



...a well prepped, well driven, vehicle should do well in any terrain, including the highway.

Carburetors became obsolete during the last century... do what ever it takes to get fuel injection...It makes bigger grins off road.
