  • Local Shops

    As many of you may have noticed, there are lots and lots of various types of shops that we Jeepers use to further our hobby. As a club, we have excellent sponsors, the list of which you can view here. But unfortnately we don't have a sponsor for everything (although we are certainly trying). So, this is an informal list of known area vendors that have treated us and/or our members well. I will update it as possible. Please post up suggestions, but I will not list anything that overlaps our sponsors.

      Until I started building my own exhaust, I used Ken's Mufflers on Central Expressway at Knox/Henderson and they did good work quickly at a decent price.

                Do you guys approach a shop about becoming a sponsor? There is a place in Burleson that I've gone to quite a bit because they're close. Always do me right. I wonder what it would take to see if they'd be interested in becoming a sponsor.

                    I had my 10# tank filled for $14 if I remember right. These people were very nice. Bobbie was the lady's name ... I don't remember the guy's name. he filled it while I waited ... took like 5-10 minute start to finish. I also had some questions about the co2 and he was more than happy to answer them .... i will be going back soon ...

                      You guys know that TEXAS is a big place and there are shops elsewhere besides North Texas. Why not ask for the other members in other parts of Texas to send in a list of good shops and then lets see what it takes for them to become sponsor shops. Do they just have to offer discounts or do they have to contribute funds to the club?
                      Sponsors for races have to do both of the above but do get advertising on the race cars. They are true sponsors. What is the accepted criteria to be a sponsor?

                        A sponsor can either pay $100/year or donate $100 worth of product to the club per year. The do not have to offer discounts.

                        As far as the location of the shops, we mainly go for those shops we see people referring, so as you suggested, members need to tell us who the use and like and then we can approach them to become sponsors. Drivetrain of Mequite is an example of that.

                            Good shop for differential work?

                            Anyone know of a good place to take a look at my differential? Making noise lately. Probably something simple, like a bad bearing.... but then again might be an opportunity for an upgrade.

                              Great folks.

                              Just had my "new" 20# CO2 Kegerator Bottle Hydro Tested for 14.95 and filled for 15 plus tax.
