    Recently visited Des Moines from Colorado, and noticed that Jockos auto parts no longer existed. Looks like they are now carquest. WTF. I used to live in Ames and always went there for parts. Seemed to be the best deal in town. Now I'm depressed.

    Jocko's was bought out by carquest. The old Jocko's warehouse on the east side still has all the cool aftermatket stuff but is no longer the main distribution center.

    Do you remember cheaper chucks? the jockos outlet store...

    I am not familiar with Cheaper Chucks. I lived in Ames from 95 to 99 while going to school. Had a 69 Camaro that always needed something, and Jockos had the cheapest parts. Too bad they no longer exist. The carquest here can get most parts, but the price is high.
