rock auto

time has come to redo the rear brakes on the Jeep.
was going to just run down to the local NAPA and grab the parts but seems Rockauto might be a bit less expensive and they have everything on their site.

have you guys used Rock before for parts? good service? good parts?

figured I would ask before trying them.

They usually have everything one could need but shipping is a killer on small stuff. I try and bundle things if I can to take that sting out.

Have purchased quite a bit of stuff and have never had any issues/great service but like I said the shipping can be an eye opener depending on what your buying and where your at delivery wise.

whenever I'm replacing a Jeep's OEM or original parts , I usually hit RockAuto first. I have used them for years & recommend the site.

It's got the Mopar as well as Dorman or alternate brands of same part if you want to save a little.

just my opinion on RockAuto. I think shipping is always expensive so don't notice a massive difference tho the main distro hub for my location seems to be only 75 miles away in Kentucky , so maybe that's why ?

This explains how the cost can vary. Parts come from all over the damn place-lol

I use rock auto a lot when I need things. The better half has a caravan with the same engine as my jk, so same oil filter. Granted the cabin filter is different but with oil and cabin filters shipped to my house it was $37.

After pursuing autozone and other websites and they want $25 for just her cabin filter I decided the shipping wasn’t a big deal. If I went to the auto parts store I would have spent double (easily) vs rock auto.

Plus I always get cool car magnets. Win win.

Post Brakes

I have 186K on my 08 Rubicon I purchased on set of front and one set of rear pads from AutoZone when I did my first brake job on 2008. I've just exchanged the pads under warranty for the last 11 years. Best deal I've ever had for brakes.

Paved Roads - Another Fine Example of Unnecessary Government Waste!
Modes - 3.5" Lift - Steel Jeep Bumper with Winch. Body Armor 4x4 Rear Bumper and Rock Sliders. - Hard Top painted White to repel the HEAT! - Ham\CB Radio - A few dents and Scratches John Bull Mod to Front & Rear Diff Covers. Woods Steering Stabilizer Relocation Bracket. Off-road Front, Rear and Rock Lights, Rear CAM, On Board Air.

Honestly that would be the only thing I would not buy at rock auto. Years ago I priced rotors and pads and the shipping cost to my house was really high (rotors aren’t light).

I've never had a problem with Rock Auto, but I have heard their customer support is just about non-existent, and sometimes they send the wrong stuff and it's just a nightmare to try to correct if you even can. So far I've found it worth the risk, but that is what I've heard. If you actually look at company reviews, it is impressively bad, but it's obviously very biased since only people who have problems tend to rate. It does highlight the problems you'll encounter if you get a bad shipment, though.

Interesting comments on shipping, I've always found their shipping to be extremely affordable and usually parts + shipping is cheaper than anything else I can get, often from even any other online supplier and surely from local stores.

LOL, warranty replacement on a consumable... I wonder how long it'll be until the no-questions warranty fad will end, if it ever does. I guess they've realized few enough people do it and more people think it's a good feature that it pays for itself in sales.

I got the y pipe with cats from them way cheaper than any where else. Part showed up when it was supposed to and I've had no problems with it. My friend has ordered parts from them around 20 times and always been happy. I will continue to use them in the future.

Only reason I mentioned shipping was I thought $16 seemed a bit high for filters (oil and cabin) until I realized they were coming from two different places and the total cost of buying from Rock Auto was 1/2 the price of other local stores.

As far as ordering vs receiving, I have always received what I ordered. I’ve been using them for years on everything but rotors. 🤷‍♂️

HAHA, I got the CJ7 on the first order. Granted I bought a water pump, gasket, hoses for my CJ5, so maybe they thought I had one similar to it.

Yup, if I need it NOW, NAPA. If I need it SOON, Rock Auto. And for some reason I really like the user interface.
