Re: BTS or JW

I've had my BTS for a little over 2 years, I've drag raced, sled pulled, towed trailer, and just generally got on it alot and it's taken every bit of it without skipping a beat.

I called Brian up the other day to see about getting it retuned for some new parts I'm adding and he's sending me the seperator plate and the other things I need free of charge, ya can't beat that!

Re: BTS or JW

From what I've gathered, both BTS and John Wood are absolutely awesome. I haven't heard as much about JW's warranty policies, but I know about BTS and I'd say it probably hard to beat by anyone. BTS straight up takes care of his customers. JW might too though, I don't know.

Re: BTS or JW

You being from Maryland it would be easier for a BTS. I have had mine for a year and I snow plowed with it this past winter a little bit and my temps never went over 150, I beat on it when I had my stage II injectors and that thing shifts amazing. I would go BTS

Re: BTS or JW

With you being in Maryland, JW almost couldn't be any further from you. BTS is MUCH closer to you physically and since they are both fantastic it would either be a shorter trip for you or should cost less in freight.

Re: BTS or JW

both warranties are the best business. both, i believe are 3 year unlimted mileage, and probaly honored well beyond that, as long as there isnt blatant abuse. i would say go with what is most convenient price wise and shipping wise, but you cant go wrong with either. JW FTW... lol

Re: BTS or JW

I've been happy with my BTS. I've heard great things about JW as well. But Burger King still has the best french fries.
