Summit or Jegs

Or neither LOL. I prefer summit just because I have always used them and more recently because their website is much easier to use. Yes i am bored!

I support Summit mainly because of how much they spend on sportsman racers and giving back. They also support the ADRL and Mountain Motor Pro Stock guys! Jegs is a racing family, however their money goes towards thier own programs... which there is nothing wrong with.

HOWEVER - Often times my customers tell me they are better off coming to people like me and other who have special deals with various venders as we offer more support and imput on builds. Also we normally can out do the warehouse pricing. Always check with smaller vendors when looking for purchases! You would be surprised how much you can save not only in the actual purchase but just having the support to go with it! Often times we can save you time and money by not just trying to sell you anything!

Guess I should make a list for everyone on here on what all I personally deal in.

I just put a sticky on that...

Keep in mind we deal in lots of things not listed! Those are just some of the more commonly used or asked about items!

I have the oppinion that "after the purchase" customer service, (not simply item returns), is more important than saving a few dollars.
Now. if you're sure of the part and may not need any further communication about it ... then saving a few bucks is waranted.

I agree. Dollars saved up front, could cost ya more than you saved. Buy from people that have put together and use the parts. More likely to get what ya wanted.

Good to know. I always try to support the smaller guys since I'm one myself in my field.

I'll be needing a few things this off season and will definitely look here first.

I've called Summit Racing tech support before I've made purchases. All they seem to know is what is written in the pages of the catalogs that I already pretty much have memorized. They aren't much help. Recently I did some business with Cale Aronson. He is very knowledgeable and he even answers his cell phone (more than I can say for me). Knowing what you are selling goes a long way when the people you are selling to have quesitons about things before they buy. People like Cale help to get you what you need. Not necessarily what you think you want. The Summit guys will just sell you what you think you need. .....and that ain't always a good thing!!

Example: I let Cale tell me what upper and lower rear control arms to buy. I had an idea of what I needed but wanted somebody with more experience to tell me what I needed. I would have never let a Summit tech support guy do that. I know I don't have to worry about it and I know I'm getting the right parts to get the job done.

Summit=main reason;They use UPS.
Jegs uses Fed.Ex. and on a number of occasions I've had to go to the terminal to pick-up my order,because they could'nt find a building that's been here since 1944.But I'd rather support the local/independent vendors.

X2 on fed ex never know when you goig to get it
I buy from both but use Summit the most as it only about 2 to 2 1/2 hours away plug if I order something from summit before 8 pm i will have it the next day without a overnight charge if need quick.Jegs takes 3 to 5 days the only thing about Jegs I don't have to pay taxs Summit I do because I live in the same state as the store.

I like the search function on the summit site a lot better than the Jegs deal. Being in Canada tho I have to go with Fed Ex.

Overnight to Canada pretty much doesnt exist no matter what you do so that is a non factor. However UPS seems to think they deserve a major amount of extra money to bring something across the border. I have had several instances of paying say 15 bucks ups charge when I place to order only to have UPS to demand another 25 over and above the taxes and duties that we pay anywhere when they show up with the package. Fed Ex is like half and Jegs can figure that all out before they send it so I dont have to worry about anything extra when it arrives.

So I end up ordering my stuff from Jegs. I do my own research and generally know exactly what I want.

Like the other guys have said I do appreciate the guys who are willing to give technical advise and will give them my business if I use them for advise or help.
