Getting parts for your Mopars

car parts

by David Zatz

There are many good places to get parts for your Mopars, other than your dealer—which likely rakes in as much profit from parts as they can, from a largely captive audience. This is a list we’ve assembled which includes discount dealer parts, the aftermarket, and even used parts from wrecking yards. We try to keep it up to date, but keep in mind we are not endorsing any of these links or dealers or stores. We come to list Caesar, not endorse him.

Dealers: authorized Mopar parts, at a discount

Few Mopar dealers consider parts sales to be a primary business, so they tend to have poorly designed, slow, and confusing web sites, with high restock fees and high shipping rates. Many parts can’t be returned at all. Pricing is usually 20% below list but can vary rather dramatically. Sometimes the same dealers sell the same part on ebay or Wal-Mart.com with free shipping and lower prices.

Random: How was Chrysler Engineering organized in 1953-1954 (and what problems would come of that)?

The inside scoop. In 1972, a team of designers and engineers thought they had a hit car: a “magic wagon.” How could they convince overly cautious executives to take a chance? Even then, how could they defend their share when the market was flooded with competitors? Find out in The Rise and Reinvention of Chrysler Minivans.
