    Auto zone gets kind of expensive, and very limited on jeep aftermarket parts, just wondering what site other people use..

    Which store depends on what you're looking for and how fast you need it. For example Walmart is great for motor oil while Advance Auto has been good with online purchases with specific online codes and lets not forget Amazon when you don't need it that day. For Jeep-specific parts, venders may match competitive prices online or offer special deals for the forum members.

    The 2 cheapest online sites I have run across are:

    http://www.usautoparts.net/
    &
    http://www.partsgeek.com/

    I tend to stick with Oreilly's Auto parts I feel they carry superior brands. They will match price with like parts even if they are different brands, meaning if you call autozone and ask them for their house brand (Duralast) power steering pump with lifetime warranty Oreillys will match that price with their house brand etc.

    Be careful with parts geek, I just send some stuff back that according to the site fit, but upon pulling and removing the old rear wheel bearing, and the new one just fell right on (needs to be pressed) not to Menton, no race.. Who sells a bearing without a race.. Wtf.. And the shocks they sent me only have half the hardware with them... But I'm keeping them probably go to the zone for the rest of the hardware, no O'Rileys where I am.

    Yeah, I'm finding that they all are going to selling bearing and race seperately lately; even in the autoparts stores. I was pretty miffed the first time I saw it. Like, who installs a new bearing without installing a new race at the same time?
