For the purpose of this page, we define a truck part as anything that

  • comes equipped on, is added to or replaces an existing part on a heavy duty truck (such as a semi tractor trailer),
  • is essential for making the truck run or to be driven, or
  • is required by law to be on a truck.

These are different from items marketed to and sold to truck drivers, which drivers may review on our product reviews page. These are also different from tools and equipment, which may be used on or in the truck.

There are certain items that may be considered by others to be a truck part that the vehicle may not come equipped with but are necessary in some phase of operation. We may break out some of the these things separately later.

If you find that there is something missing from our list, please feel free to contact us or simply write a review below and we'll place it in the most appropriate spot on our site. We appreciate your willingness to share.

There's nothing worse than investing a significant amount of money in parts only to find out that other drivers have had problems with them, or that other parts from a different manufacturer work better, last longer, or provide a better value. In order to save money, we have dedicated this page on our site to reviews written by professional drivers about parts for big trucks.

Sometimes the experience of one professional driver may be completely different from the experience of another. But we can all learn from everyone's experiences. Just check out the customer reviews from places like

Money saving tip: One method of getting the best value on truck parts is to shop around (if you can) to get the lowest price on the same item. Another is to buy a comparable part from an aftermarket source (not one branded by a truck manufacturer). Note: Not every tip will work in every case, so you should use your own best judgment.

You may use the form below to submit a tip, idea, opinion, review, or question on this subject.
