    <font color="green"> Paid $590 for mine from Drivetrain Direct, but bought $1700 worth of parts that day too, so they may have cut me a break. </font>

    I just talked to 4WPW/forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif, they will not match the local place -4WD Parts Center, 770 814 8000, if you are in Atl - price of $680, and that is their advertised price! I get a small discount off of that w/ my club so it will be even better. What a bunch of dinks.

    hehehe,
    I bought mine in april, I brought in the petersons april add for 4wheel parts wholesalers...
    It was advertised for $618! May it's advertised for like $630 i believe...
    The guy tried to give me the run around that the add was for 30 spline kits only, not "upgraded to" 35 spline like a GMD60 front... /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
    I argued with him for a while and told him WTF it's advertised for D60 application for $618, my front D60 comes 35 spline stock! /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
    So he price matched the add for $618, with tax it was like $660.

    The only problem with 4wheel parts, the only reason i went there was they had the lowest price i could find for an arb... but it took me 3 TIMES of ordering an arb, going down there to open the box and refuse it because it was obviously a customer return that was missing parts. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif
    Finally the 3rd time and 2 1/2 weeks later i got an unopened arb box with all the parts. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    That is what I don't like about 4WPW. I don't want to have to beg for a good price. I do understand their side of the counter, I used to sell parts. I just don't like being lied to. I don't want this to turn into a 4WPW bash, so this is my last comment on them unless someone who works there posts a reply.

    So far my experience has been ok- they were able to beat prices from everywhere- I just ordered my MM 10.5k winch from them. They matched the cheapest online internet price I found ($750) and even tossed in the P/S adapter because thats what the online internet place offered.

    They beat Summit for my energy suspension poly mounts by $1, and they beat ORD's weld in frame brace by $10.

    All in all, I think I got a pretty good deal. Im sure somewhere out there there are better deals, but one stop shopping and the ability to complain to someone who at least has a phone around is kinda priceless.
