    I have to give quick shout out to Steve at ORD. I bought a rear bushing set about three weeks ago and they just didn't feel right going in. Today I call Steve tell him the story and he ships out the right ones for next to nothing. If only more businesses would take care of thier customers like this. Great guy to do business with. Thanks Steve.

    It's Stephen!! Steve runs this site. Everyone gets there names messed up. And yes Stephen Watson does a great job. I got my lift,front axles, shackle flip,front shackles, greasable bolt kit, and the cross over steering kit from them. They also machined my 44 knuckle. I'm getting the steering brace, 1" body lift and bushing from them at Christmas.(from my wife) I keep waiting to get my ORD T-shirt. I figured I have spent enough. But they have always been great and answered all my questions.

    Yes I must say his service isEXCELLENT!!! Stephen has been great to me I got my bushings,shackle flip,ORD Doubler Kit Complete and a Free Ride in his truck all for only $$$. Steve allways has made time to answer any & allquestions that I had before I made any purchase. Too bad others don't do bussiness the same way. Now all I need is him to come down and install it for me! HA! HA!

    Re: Steve Watson is the man!

    I'll throw my praises in on this thread too! Have emailed Stephen with everything from custom rollcage construction ideas, suspensions, engines, drivetrain, you name it & he has always replied with thoughtful and informative info. Just can't wait to order some of his stuff in the next month or so!!

    Thanks Stephen!

    Re: Steve Watson is the man!

    I have to agree. I make most of my parts but have purchaced a few things from Stephen at ORD and always been pleased and they arived when I was told they would. Stephen is also a hell of a nice guy. When I called to place an order he actully answered the phone, he and I ended up talking for about 45 minutes.
    The main thing I ordered was the steering brace. I was VERY impressed with the quality and fit. Even more impressed how well it tightend up the truck even on the street. Well worth the asking price. It's nice comming out of the woods and the Steering wheel as straight as it was when you went in [​IMG]. It's even nicer to get a fair price and they show up when you were told they would.
    I'm so fed up with the local shops that next time I need something I'll gladly pay the shipping and send him my buisness. Quite honestly he is beating the pants off the local places on price even with shipping on large items like lift kits etc.

    Re: Steve Watson is the man!

    Hey BURT, are you going to weld those new axles to your truck? LOL!! Sounds like you've got the welding bug!!
    Back to Stephen at ORD. I haven't oredered anything yet, but have talked to him and I must say he is very patient and sounds like a great guy just from 1 15 minute phone call. I too look forward to ordering some new goodies for my JIMI.

    I miss my Ex, but my aim is getting better!

    Re: Steve Watson is the man!

    Well you know how it is when someone calls you the wrong name. Lots of guys come in the store and say hey Kevin. I just let it go. No big deal

    Yea when ever I purchase stuff from Steve Watson at ORD he never corrects me on his name. Why do you think he goes by Stephen?

    Steve is short for Steven or Stephen, I belive Stephen Watson pronounces it Steven and spells it Stephen, either way, I don't think he cares what you call him. [​IMG]

    .........as long as you call him! [​IMG]

    Same experience with Stephen, ordered my transfer case mounts and steering box brace last week, he and I spoke for a while about my "clunk", gave me some good ideas to go with. Great group of guys associated with this site........

    Steve- Stephen
    Mike- Michael
    Dave- David
    But, Keith- Kevin? I can understand the difference there!
