Does Rovers North have a military discount?

A few of the companies I buy from have military discounts (Rovahfarm, Lucky8). Does anyone know if Rovers North has one that I can use for internet orders?

I need to replace pretty much all of my front end bushings on the D1 and it looks like RN is the only place that has original bushings for sale (besides the dealer).

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, Lucky8 just wants you to scan your ID and e-mail them a copy. Apparently people were screwing them before.

Just ordered a set of lower control arms with the poly bushings for the RRS from them. They hooked me up with the shipping.

It's against federal law to scan military IDs, and illegal for places to ask. This is a relatively new law.

One way around asking for a copy of a military ID would be for L8 to just require an email from a .mil account. Then they could reply with a discount code.

Would you mind citing the law please? I've always felt uncomfortable sending my cac so it'd be great to have that backup.

Look, we don't know each other, so no need to extend unnecessary heat

I support the efforts, I have served, and in countries where it is MANDATORY to Serve, not where I chose to make my career as a member of an Armed Force environment.



Hence, the WHY

If any professional is entitled to a discount, I am ok with that

So most civilians feel good about themselves. Its their way of supporting the various sacrifices that military personnel/ family of, make. Besides most places just offer 10% which shouldnt effect bottom line and can also be written off as a deduction.

Yeah we don't know each other dude but if speak disparagingly about the family that I serve and protect than yeah I will call you out.

You might have served in countries where you were forced. Good for you.

We serve in an all volunteer force so we don't have to deal with whining pos' who will complain of being forced.

So if you think coming here and asking such a daq and interrupting the convo between military folk then you're the one bringing unnecessary heat to yourself.

As they say, don't start none and there won't be none.

CLASSIC, when you can't find anything eloquence , resort to name calling.

Please explain where was I whining about serving or complaining for that matter?

Look DUDE, your mouth is writing checks your body can't cash.

Many of these people who served in a mandatory environment have bailed the sorry asses of professionals, as a Brother in need, I am certain, your comment is look upon quite well

So to be clear, about your VOLUNTEER words, it is not your career, are you doing free of pay?

Many of my good friends are active Duty, many have been lost in senseless places, YET, a valid question as of WHY?

In my best New Jersey state of mind " Have a nice Day "

That might be

I am all about support of sacrifices, specially for families of those returning with PTSD, and other situations, hence I much rather appreciate Donations to the various institutions dealing with that i.e Walter Reed Hospital new Brain Unit, etc

As there are many other Units that do sacrifices i.e LEO, Firemen, Coast Guard, EMS, and often not entitled to a discount

Ok, Gustavo. I was not resorting to calling you names.

I was speaking of why it is the US military's intent to have people want to serve this country without being forced. Hence "volunteer" to serve, vs being drafted or part of a "national service".

I will leave it at that, and btw, you're welcome, from all the members of the US military who serve to protect your right to have this conversation, wondering why we should be given a discount over those who don't do shit other than talk it.

You have yourself a great day.

BTW, you may want to get your facts straight. 1st of all, Coast Guard is part of the military, and every place I've been offered a military discount, EMS, PD, and others who serve and protect the members of this society have also been offered discounts. Just saying...

chipotle will give a 50 percent discount to uniformed individuals or if you show a badge.

Also I feel the reason for the discount is the fact that military is being underpaid for their services.
