Recycled OEM parts are great alternatives when new parts are discontinued

Your vehicle’s manufacturer created OEM parts to offer a seamless transition from a worn-out part to a new one, so your vehicle will run or look like it was originally intended. OEM parts have been lifesavers for vehicles for decades, especially after fender benders. But now that the company has stopped manufacturing those parts for your old truck, you may now wonder where to fill in the gaps. First, know that you don’t have to buy a new truck or trust in aftermarket parts alone. At Active Truck Parts, we have an extensive inventory of recycled OEM parts for sale. 

In fact, Active Truck Parts has such a large inventory of all used and recycled OEM parts, you might want to think of us as “your parts place.” No matter where you are in the country, we can ship your part to you. Getting started is easy. You can search for your specific recycled OEM parts online through our parts request tool. Or you can browse through our parts inventory, which we update regularly, and look for parts based on year, make and model, and specific keywords. You can even sort the parts by price. If you don’t see it, call us, and we can track the part down.

Our inventory is gleaned from a 40-acre lot filled with medium and heavy-duty trucks of all makes, models, and years that we add to regularly. Our knowledgeable staff dismantles parts fast, and our rebuild team inspects and ensures the parts will work for your needs. Whether you need recycled OEM parts, aftermarket parts – really any OEM vs. genuine parts to save money — check us out first. You can call, visit our website, or stop in on your way through Colorado. 

Offering recycled OEM parts helps keep Colorado beautiful

Colorado is a land of beauty. That is why 90 million people visited our state in 2022, according to the Colorado Tourism Industry. Residents and business owners alike are invested in keeping our state as pristine as we can. As an auto salvage yard, one major claim to fame we have when it comes to recycled OEM parts is that we are good stewards of the land. We have been salvaging the best parts from medium and heavy-duty trucks for more than 40 years and we have our system down to a science. 

We do not allow salvaged vehicles to leak caustic fluids into the ground, and we recycle vehicle fluids to ensure we do not pollute the ground or leach into groundwater.

For decades, salvage yards have been involved in the effort of saving this planet, one truck or car at a time. They do that by parting out the good parts of trucks that have been wrecked, totaled out, or no longer work. Just because one part is damaged or doesn’t work doesn’t mean the rest of the vehicle is inoperable.  Every year, the North American automotive recycling industry saves around 85 million barrels of oil. How? According to the Automotive Recyclers Association, were it not for recycling and reusing salvaged parts, the industry would have used that much oil every year to create new or replacement parts.

7 reasons to work with OEM parts for your peace of mind
Here are seven ways OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) parts can deliver better results for heavy and medium-duty trucks:

  1. Top-Notch Quality: When it comes to heavy and medium-duty trucks, nothing beats OEM parts. They’re like the gold standard because they’re made specifically for your truck model. That means they fit perfectly and work exactly how they’re supposed to, giving you peace of mind and keeping your truck running smoothly.
  2. Built to Last: OEM parts are like the superheroes of the truck world—they’re tough, durable, and built to handle whatever the road throws at them. They’re made from high-quality materials and tested to make sure they can take the heat (literally and figuratively). So, you can count on them to go the distance without breaking a sweat.
  3. Keep Your Truck Performing its Best: Your truck’s performance matters, right? Well, OEM parts are designed to keep your truck humming along like a well-oiled machine. They’re engineered to work perfectly with all the other parts in your truck, so you get that smooth, consistent performance you need to get the job done.
  4. Warranty Backup: Here’s the kicker — OEM parts usually come with a warranty. That means if something goes wrong (which is pretty rare), you’re covered. It’s like having a safety net, so you can focus on the road ahead without worrying about unexpected repair costs.
  5. Safety First: When it comes to trucks, safety is non-negotiable. OEM parts are rigorously tested to meet strict safety standards, so you can trust that they’ll keep you and your truck safe on the road. Plus, using OEM parts ensures that your truck stays compliant with all the regulations and requirements, so you can avoid any headaches down the line.
  6. Expert Support: Need a hand with installation or troubleshooting? OEM manufacturers have your back. They’ve got a whole team of experts ready to help you out with anything you need, whether it’s advice on which part to choose or guidance on how to install it. It’s like having your own personal pit crew.
  7. Protect Your Investment: Last but not least, using OEM parts helps protect the value of your truck. Because, let’s face it, no one wants a truck that’s been patched up with cheap, knock-off parts. By sticking with OEM, you’re keeping your truck in top-notch condition, which means it’ll hold its value better when it’s time to sell or trade-in.

So, there you have it — seven reasons why OEM parts are the way to go for heavy and medium-duty trucks. It’s all about quality, reliability, and peace of mind. And when your vehicle’s manufacturer no longer makes those parts, trust in Active Truck Parts’ huge inventory of recycled OEM parts in Colorado. We will ship anywhere in the country and across the globe.
