    Hey Everyone! I haven’t seen a thread like this around and I hope it can go to good use and can be helpful to a handful of people.

    The reason for this thread is to ask other TW members if something you’re about to buy is a DEAL or NOT.

    Maybe you already did some research on a certain part you’ve been searching for but still want to know what others think of the deal you’re getting. Maybe in your research you found so many fluctuating price differences and just need to make sure you are getting the best deal possible. Maybe you know it's a deal based on YOUR research, but some other member might no a place that has an even better deal.


    IMPORTANT REMINDER:
    1. This is NOT a thread to post items for sale/trade, but simply a DEAL or NO DEAL thread
    - If NO DEAL, state why and point the member in the right direction for a "better" deal
    2. DO NOT post links to an item you’re planning to buy; other members might jump on it before you do :spy:
    3. Feel free to post ANYTHING you’re about to purchase (auto related or not)
    4. Posting photos of the item is OKAY

    Maybe this thread can have potential to be a "Sticky" some day :notsure:

    OP, are you coincidentally super OCD and afraid of germs to the point where you won't touch people's hands? Just curious.

    Deal! Go for it. The swap will turn out great. I love the 01-04 fronts. Good luck finding the rest of the parts man.

    good idea op, this will prob be the more accepted form of price bashing that is heavily frowned upon in others' post

    This for $250. Should I get it or not?

    Came off what looks like a lowered Frontier. BFG A/T, seller says is pretty worn. The crappy thing about this is the size of the tires. Wheels are 16" but tires are 235/70/R16. So they are 2" smaller in diameter than the ones I have on my truck now. So I'm guessing if you think I should get it, it would be because of the wheels only.

    EDIT: OLD POST, no longer considering this
