Used truck parts are an affordable alternative to replacing parts in your medium to large sized trucks. These parts provide the durability, quality, and effectiveness necessary to keep your truck running efficiently, while keeping money in your wallet . The recycled truck part market also offers a wide range of possibilities and selections, making it easier to obtain the perfect replacement part for your truck. But before beginning your search, here’s a quick breakdown of the different types of used parts on the market today:
OEM parts: OEM or Original Equipment Manufacturer parts are new or used parts that are manufactured by the same manufacturer as the truck. The manufacturing process and materials are identical to those of the original part. The primary advantage of an OEM part is a guaranteed and genuine fit – a perfect pairing straight from truck heaven. These parts are certified as high-quality and boast proven performance due to their source and production methods.
OE parts: Often confused with OEM parts, OE or Original Equipment parts, are also from the same manufacturer as the truck. These are generally cheaper however, as the manufacturer subcontracts the manufacturing, while overseeing the assembly. These have the same quality as OEM parts but with a smaller price tag- sweet music to your wallet’s ears.
Aftermarket parts: By far the cheapest and most accessible used parts are aftermarket parts. These neither originate nor are assembled by the manufacturer, but are built to fit- and last. The design of aftermarket parts are an exact replica of the OEM and OE parts that originally came with the truck. These are generally more affordable than the other two options due to the number of manufacturers involved in the process. These parts are also readily available as they are carried by many dealers.
Easily accessible, certified as reliable, durable, and high-quality, with the added advantage of affordability, these parts are tough to beat.. A level of assuredness is associated with OEM and OE parts but aftermarket parts can meet and even exceed the quality and functionality of original manufacturer parts.
