  • Dealer only parts

    I had to get 4 quick connectors for my transmission cooling lines today. And i had to go to the dealer to get them. The guy rings me up i hand him the credit card and he is like oh yea, they are 21.95 each.. I almost fell off the chair. I was like what 21.95 for a lil plastic quick connector and 2 o rings get out of here. The sales rep said it was a repair kit. I was like WTF IT IS JUST A PEICE OF PLASTIC AND O RINGS.. WHY SO EXPENSIVE. After I paied for it, i said would not have come to the dealer if i could get aftermarket parts. But i need the parts anyways so i had to bite the bullet and buy them. Has anybody else been experenced this with a dealer only item.

      I got rid of the disconnects for my tranny lines. Especially since the 97+ (which mine is a '9 requires a quick disconnect tool.

          The simple solution is cut, flare and clamp. About $4.

              Cut my new part that i just bought. That sounds like an idea. but first things first i got to retap the powersteering bracket, i striped out the top bolt hole. tryin to tighten it after an hour and a half of breaking the adjustment bole free from it's frozen state of rust.

                  No josh. i was told to read my manual so i did. and it said to replace the plastic quick disconnects. so i did what the book said. i guess that is what i get for reading the book.

                    i noticed my new rad is a lot thicker than my old one. my old one is a one core. So does this mean my new one is a 3 core.

                          Have you not read anything in this thread? We need to figure out what this guy's skull is made out of. I would think it could out perform depleted uranium, as a material to make armor piercing ammo out of.

                            if the dam book said to drive your jeep off a cliff, would you do it?
