FREE INSTALLATION! UP TO 50 PERCENT OFF, NO REASONABLE OFFER REFUSED! We all have seen these signs and are often fooled into believing that we've found a good deal. In reality, the finest bargains usually aren't advertised. What we like is that special widget found in some obscure store at an amazingly low price.

We oiled our shopping-cart wheels and went in search of screaming deals. That’s right, shopping cart. Screaming deals are not always at the parts counter. Try looking in places that you wouldn’t normally consider. You’ll be amazed to find that even the local minimart has an auto-parts section. Hardware and grocery outlets are also fair game. Heavy-equipment and boat dealerships also have interesting items. Leave no store unturned. It’s not that the local auto parts shops don’t have great deals too. Try looking in some of the aisles that don’t seem interesting; you may be surprised at what you find. Many items you run into may not even be designed for 4x4s, but can be useful in some way. Keep your eyes peeled and use your imagination.
