UK Jeep Garages

Hi,

Having recently bought a 2005 WK & identified the local Jeep dealers (Horsham & Knowls Hill), I would be interested to know of other places that work on Jeeps, or distribute parts?

I'm Getting the MD OME kit fitted by Frogs Island (near Oxford), but also fancy a rear diff guard. Seems there aren't any/many importers of OEM Jeep stuff here in the UK. Does anyone know where to get stuff?

You can try ebay seller 'jeepchryslerparts' for any stock parts. Stay well clear of UK dealers, they charge around 85 an hour!

Most garages will work on Jeeps, but try to find one that is reasonably familiar with them.

Was trying to get some stuff from 4xguard, but the cost (& hassle) of arranging shipping is crazy. $96 cost for a $149 part. Anyone know if there's a UK distributor?

Don't forget the import duties too! They'll make your eyes bleed

Re: UK Jeep Garages

Frog Island (Abingdon) were great, highly recommend.
Horsham Car Centre (Nr Gatwick) have also been excellent (great waiting area too).
Knowl Hill (Dealer), unhelpful, poor service & expensive IMHO.
