Motor’s FleetCross has been a go to source for cross referencing truck parts for years. While FleetCross is a great tool, the $3,500 a year for a 3 user seat is a bit steep! We have created a comparison to showcase a few of the differences between the no cost TruckPartsCross.com and Motor’s FleetCross. Below are some examples.
Easy To Read Results
In this first example, we take a look at a very common part, AS1142, a Gunite Slack Adjuster. Notice that in FleetCross you come up with 8 separate parts. In reality there is only one AS1142 and it is a Gunite Slack Adjuster! Just because FleetPride and NAPA sells it, doesn’t mean they make the slack adjuster. There is no need for the additional part listings.
When you click on the result for the available cross references you will be presented a large list of multiple crosses that are available for this part. It can be easy to get lost in a click trail while searching for a proper cross with all of the results shown.
When you perform the same search in TruckPartsCross.com, you will find that there is in fact only one AS1142 Gunite Slack Adjuster!
The list of parts that cross to the Gunite slack adjuster is sorted by type. The part cross will be either a Direct or an Indirect Cross. With our systems, and parts professionals, we have created over 17 Milllion, never before seen crosses, in the industry. These new crosses are called Indirect crosses and happen when Manufacturer A crosses to Manufacturer B and Manufacturer B crosses to Manufacturer C.

Actual Part Images
Next, look at an Alliant Power Fuel Filter, part number AP61005. When we search for the fuel filter in Fleet Cross, not much is returned. The system shows what the part is, however does not give you the ability to cross it. Furthermore, the image shown is a generic image of a group of different filters.
