    I propose that everyone here boycots 4 wheel parts. No one has had good service and no one will, if we and the J##Pers boycot em then they will have a huge loss in profits, come on we are a large revenue for them. we must revolt!!!!

    Sorry to say, but so far, no problems with them yet!

    BTW, its going to take a LOT more than just CK5 members and any Jeeper in the world to affect 4WPW!!!

    When In Doubt, Whip It Out!

    I too have been boycotting them. If you haven't had a problem then chances are you will... also if they screw on CK5'er they screw us all I say. I'll gladly give my business to Kieth who is a member here and is at Autoaccesories.com or National Wheel and tire.

    One day.... you all will have a problem with them. It's not a question of if here. You will... and when you have a problem, good luck getting it fixed. I stand by the statement I made months ago. They'd be better off if they hired spider monkies to run them... the monkies are smarter! DOH! [​IMG]

    The monkies are too advanced for 4WPW - Last time I argued with them I think I dealt with a retarded parrot (one phrase over and over) "Let me ask my supervisor, let me ask my supervisor, let me......"

    I'm not creative enough to comeup with a new signature [​IMG]

    Listen they are not my first choice for parts but if I can get a better deal from them I will.
    Now here is the problem these type of posts create for CK5.
    Steve needs some advertising money and this being a 4x4 site Four Wheel parts is the type of advertiser he needs. 150 posts of "Bycot" gets seen by their brass Steve isn't going to be able to get any advertising out of them.

    Advertising is one side of what we do, If people are being mistreated by a company we shouldn't want the money, I would gladly pay a small monthly to keep quality vendors and suppliers here. I understand mistakes but on a large and consistent scale as you can see by the posts We don't need that from a vendor or supplier. Everyone looks to the site for knowledge and aligning with them may be a mistake just for mone. Thanks

    I haven't had any problems w/ 4WPW. I did begin to get upset with them when they took forever to ship my locker. That was untill I found out that they were out of stock nationwide. Noone had them in stock. My only real gripe was they didn't tell me that when I ordered it.
    They are not my favorite store and I am very carefull to tell them exactly what I want. As far as mail order I like National Wheel and Tire the best. However, they don't sell Detroits. They are not perfect, either, but they are a lot better.

    I agree with this boycot. If the "Brass" at 4WPW sees the boycot and gets upset, possibly they will do something to fix it. It's not just one or two people that have the problems here. That is the very basis of our "Free Economy".

    I have had no problems with them at all. best thing about them is they are able to cut prices over the phone because i said i could get it cheaper at another store they never even knew about. they have no idea if someone is telling the truth. they have good service and great prices. Better than ORW.

    1974 Chevy Blazer Cheyanne. lots of plans for it....
    but it is on 33's now, with saggy old springs. i am in so cali if ya got any parts for me.

    I've never had a problem with them either...
    I like the fact that my local store has 3 K5 owners working there...
    Sorry.. I'm going to continue to shop there..

    I shop at the same store that Rocko does, and I haven't had any problems yet although they did take a little long with my hubs but they said that the problem was on Warn's end.
