    Vendors...the good, bad, and ugly of your experiences purchasing with them

    Lot of members have purchased product from vendors. This is a thread to let everybody everyone know their experiences. I've had bad ones and good ones. Found out by personal experience. I work hard to make money, to spend on my jeep. I don't want to wait for a month for a product that stated "in stock" and then not get it and to only be refunded.

    Some incredible service I have received:

    Northridge4x..Awesome! Highly recommend. Awesome customer service and lightining speed delivery!!
    4wheelonline...Again awesome to deal with great customer service and shipping.

    Some not so incredible:

    Jeepaddons, warn factory outlet...Bad customer service all around, product not available, no returns on emails.

    Hopefully, this will help other members/jeepers make a decision when ordering products for their jeep.

    Thanks guys!

    Northridge 4x4 is not only quick and fair with pricing, but they seem very knowledgable on the phone and have steered my in the right direction on several occasions.

    Amazon has fantastic prices at times, and while they are not a 4x4 parts store, they were easily $10 less expensive on my OR-Fab tire carrier that Quadratec.

    I've always gotten what I ordered from EVO in a timely manner.

    4x4 parts was a nightmare!

    I'd rather pay 10 more dollars at Northridge just because they are awesome! Most of the time I think they match the price not sure though

    I usually buy from northridge, and even though I have to pay tax now, it's 1 day shipping for free on orders over $100 on whatever is in stock at the Longmont location for me since it's 90 minutes away. I also by from jeep4x4center since they usually have what northridge didn't.

    I also do 4wheelparts so small stuff since they are 10 min away!

    I buy some recovery gear because they usually have good deals on stuff like that.

    Off road elements is all I've dealt with. They have great prices, quick shipping and will answer any questions you have same day. I have gotten my lift, wheels, sliders, procal, y pipe, tire carrier, hi lift, etc from them and have nothing but great things to say about them!

    THE GOOD

    Morris 4x4---good prices, gave military discount and quick service
    Discount Tire Direct Online---f'n OUTSTANDING! Great prices, quick service and outstanding customer service, free shipping on 5 rims and tires.
    4 Wheel Parts---Good service, matched prices
    Amazon---the bomb!
    Synergy---nice folks easy to deal with, got my ball joints to me quick.
    Superlift---Gave my old club 50% off anything for 2 weeks because they missed shipping some promo stuff to one of our runs...NICE folks.


    THE BAD

    Rough Country---bad customer support, website didn't show out of stock, no one was helpful...NO ONE!


    THE UGLY
    JC Whitney---items listed wrong on website, wouldn't fix, customer service didn't know how to help, took way to long to get money back.
    Body Armor---Customer service was rude, wouldn't ship missing part, wouldn't return emails after a week or so....they suck!!!!!

    Quadratec - Good quality products, okay customer service and very efficient return policy on ANYTHING that is defective. I didnt even have to leave my house to return a hitch and a new one was on its way before I even hung up the phone.

    Right Channel Radios - Awesome all around. Can't beat 'em for CB stuff. Seriously.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
