Last week started out with a modern day version of Christmas in July, also known as Amazon Prime Day! This annual event held by the retail giant prompted us to take a look at what they offer for Commercial Truck Parts. Much to our surprise, the online retail giant has an entire category dedicated to Heavy Duty and Commercial Vehicle Equipment.

From Lights to A/C Compressors

Whether you are looking for something as common as a 4pc 6in Oval LED Tail Lights or more specific part like an A/C Compressor for a Freightliner Cascadia, Amazon has you covered.  Sure, the current selection of parts leaves a lot to be desired – but when you consider just a few short years ago Amazon was only offering books, it is a pretty good start. I feel sure the list of parts available through Amazon will continue to grow. The fact that they took the time to create and maintain a dedicated category should tell you something about the focus they have on the area.

How To Find Alternative Manufactures

We wanted to see how you could utilize TruckPartsCross.com to find parts that Amazon carries. We took a filter/water separator element for a Cummins part number 5257769 and entered it in to the cross reference search. This part has quite a few different cross references, 2 pages worth of both direct and indirect crosses to be exact! I searched the first part number LFF3257 in Amazon and came up with a 6-pack of Luber-finer Heavy Duty Fuel Filter.  The second result is a Baldwin Fuel/Water Separator and the third result is just the filter itself, also a fraction of the cost. By researching these part cross’ on Amazon you can find alternative parts that not only save you money but often save you time with Amazon’s Prime Shipping.

No More Waiting Around For Parts!

One thing is for sure, the days of having to wait around on other people to find part & pricing options are coming to an end. We strive to continue to provide access to all available part options quick and easily on one platform. We look forward to the day that a technician can find the failed part, identify the part number, find all available options for the part, and get the part quickly without having to impede the process.
