“Where does everybody buy their mods/accessories?”
This is a question that many new Jeep Owners ask, and I would like to offer my opinion/advice on where to buy.
I would tremendously appreciate it if everyone would click thru the link below and order as many Jeep parts that they can afford! 😉 HA!
In all seriousness, Amazon is a good place to start. Amazon now offers a fitment tool, so you can sort products by your specific Jeep.
Amazon makes it simple to purchase, and the Customer Reviews are always helpful. I have found valuable product information by reading the 2, 3 and 4-Star reviews, as you get the real story, and not the professionally written, fake reviews.
By reading up on the real reviews, you can find some deals on the product that you are after. I was able to buy Mopar 82213860 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 4-Door Black All-Weather 3-Piece Floor Mat Set for less than what my local dealer wanted.
Quadratec (quadratec.com) is a GREAT resource for Jeep parts and information.
Quadratec offers product from most all major brands, and what I believe sets them apart is the wealth of information available via their monthly catalog, as well as their YouTube Channel and Quadratec Academy.
Quadratec’s Customer Service is second to none, via on-line chat, or phone support. I have not yet attended one of their on-site events, however they have several throughout the year.
There’s never anything wrong with supporting your local 4×4/Jeep/Truck accessory shop either. Some parts you just need to get a good look at in person before purchasing, and may need installed.
I have been fortunate to have Mumbly’s Off Road (mumblys.com) near me for nearly 30 years!
Other local sources to look for parts are your vehicle out-fitters. I am VERY fortunate to live not too far from American Expedition Vehicles (https://www.aev-conversions.com/) and was able to purchase new OE take-off Rubicon Rock Rails for my Jeep Wrangler Sport for $200!
AEV also sells other take-off components, such as Rubicon suspensions, and wheel/tire sets.
AEV also sells all of their parts direct via their website.
Extreme Terrain https://www.extremeterrain.com/ is another good on-line source for parts/accessories, although Extreme Terrain seems to have mostly bumpers, armor and lifts, vs. a complete vehicle offering from Quadratec and AEV.
Rugged Ridge http://www.ruggedridge.com/ offers great products as well, similar to Extreme Terrain’s offerings.
Eventually you’ll need a replacement part for a repair, and what better time to upgrade?! If it’s more of a maintenance/repair part, and you can plan/wait for it, I have been very pleased with Rock Auto https://www.rockauto.com/ for my basic parts needs.
And let’s not forget JC Whitney!!! https://www.jcwhitney.com/ JC Whitney was my go to back in the day when I was beating up on my Jeeps. Mostly because of their GREAT catalog support before the internet existed, and I lived in the Chicago Land area at the time!
So this is where I would suggest buying your mods and accessories from, based on my experience, and I would love to hear your suggestions?
