Re: I want to change my grille...first

Both links are the same: $430...

I am in the same place you are: it looks sweet, but not $430 sweet...

Re: I want to change my grille...first

i felt the same way as both of you guys, but then i finally couldn't take it any more and just spent the money! i also bought the rear lift gate handle for justforjeeps. use code jeepgarage5 for 5% off or if you call and talk to peter and tell him your a member on here he will give you a discount. Peter and justforjeeps.com has great customer service. great place to get all your jeep parts/products.

Re: I want to change my grille...first

You can do much better, price wise, with several online Mopar dealers;

Mopar Part Number Search offers part# 1ZW79DX8AA for $345.00

Jeep Parts - Mopar Parts ~ OEM Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, Plymouth Parts lists the same grill for $363.00

It pays to shop around! These are only two examples, there are more if you look!

Re: I want to change my grille...first

I don't think anyone that has dropped the cash on the black grill or rear brow has regretted it. I haven't

What are you suggesting? Pay more for the exaxt same OEM Mopar parts?

Many of us have used these sites with great success and saved a lot of money! Most of them are authorized Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep dealers. Some may be better than others.

The parts guys at several local dealers price match online prices if they really want my business..... and they get it!

Your favorite forum parts vendor and the 10% discount he offers isn't very much in the scheme of things. Anyone can do better than that; all they have to do is try a little!!

Re: I want to change my grille...first

yep...I would pay a little more for the BEST customer service on the planet! No worries about returns if damaged in shipping! You can actually CALL and talk to a LIVE person...instead of waiting days....weeks on returned emails. They also carry a HUGE stock of parts instead of drop shipping from detroit....etc. BUT the most important thing with JustforJeeps...they supported this forum when NO ONE else would. Justforjeeps is one of the reasons this forum is here. You can also CALL justforjeeps and get a much better than advertised price and many members will attest to that.
