    Default Who to use to place big order? Tires/driveshaft/etc

    I need to order the following:

    5(each) BFG KM2's 35x12.50R17
    Front CV Driveshaft for a JK (Tom woods or Coast)
    Mopar front locker wire harness

    I'm guessing it'll be a little over 2k for it all, but I'm hoping to find a place who can have it in-stock or too my folks house buy the 18ish. I'm sure I can deal with 4wd, but I prefer to work with smaller shops and help out if I can. Northridge doesn't do tires, so they're out.

    Who's everyone using?
    2008 JK Unlimited~ 4" Teraflex lift, 35" BFG KM2's, Dynatrac ProRock 44 e-locked, 5.13's, JKS QD's, JKS F&R Trackbars, MM 9500 winch, Rockhard 4x4 Full Skid System, AEV snorkel, SS brakelines,...and it goes on, and on, and on,..

    Give Dave at northridge4x4.com a call.... nothing but good things to say about his shop.
    We've also got a vendors section on the forum, that's always another good place to look.

    Carolina Driveline is pretty good about 179ish to the door for a DS. I would check locally for the tires. Personally I'm a fan of Discount Tire Co. I like their warranty.

    ive used foothills motorsports a few times for BIG tires, say 40" and bigger and have had good luck. badboy tires is another good company to work with and has great pricing. for D/S i only run JE REEL. seen theirs take some SERIOUS abuse and keep on running.

    Tires should be no problem to get localy...Call now and place an order so they have them when you need. Tom woods is about 2weeks but he is great to deal with and stands behind his product. Anything mopar you should be able to get at local dealer just might have to order it

    treaddepot.com is always a good choice because they will price match if you contact them and I heard if you call they offer a military discount. I know that shipping is a pain, but it can even out... otherwise my choice is tirerack.com I always work between the two... but my 35's were from the depot.

    I used 4x4groupbuy.com for my 35" goodyears. They didn't charge sales tax, and all in all the price to my door was $150-$200 cheaper than Tire Rack or Discount Tire. Also awesome customer service, plus they will work with suppliers to get you what you need.
