I have built a few Jeep, during the builds I used Quadatech and Morris4x4, both were very competitive with their prices, easy parts return and easy to work with. I will admit I stopped using Quadratech as much once they started charging me the 8.25% sales tax. On my current xj build I decided to try some of the venders on the site. So far I've used Allen's Offroad and RockRidge4wd, Allen's is very competitive with pricing, very pleasant to work with and not only emailed me but called to let me know the status of my shipment. Rockridge was also very responsive to my needs, they did make a mistake with my order, they sold me a swaybar disconnect that was for a 4" lift but I requested one with no lift. Once it arrived we started installing it and then realized the part was wrong. I called and spoke with Jeff and he apologized for the mess up and came up with the idea for us to cut it shorter and rethread the disconnect. He also offered to pay for the die to rethread the part. We rethreaded it and I didn't send them the bill for the die since he was so willing to fix the problem.

I was planning to use one Vender here but he seemed to aggressive and I saw him post up a few comments on threads that were a little out of line for a dealer, he jumped in and told ya you shouldn't buy something such as a throttle body spacer and said they were useless. Well yes and no on them, Ive seen Dyno results with throttle body spacers and have seen 0-5 hp increases depending on the engine and the setup. I bet this same dealer wouldn't step up and tell you that you don't need a lift, heavy bumpers etc....if your just driving a DD or back road trail vehicle.

There are a few other Venders here I will be using on my build I just started, I haven't locked in just one Vender yet like I did with a build when I used Quadratech and the build with Morris, I'm still testing the waters.

I try to use smaller companies now even if they are not the cheapest...a friend of mine is losing business with his online motorcycle store to Amazon, they are the walmart of the online products. Amazon is closing companies daily, so support the smaller shops that you can pick up the phone and call if needed.

As far as type of lift, do your research and get one that meets your needs both terrain and budget.
