Semi Truck Parts / Commercial Truck Parts
Heavy truck parts such as engines, transmissions and drivetrains are necessary to keep commercial trucks properly maintained and ready for the next job or delivery. Semi truck parts used to be much more difficult to find, but now fleet managers and owner operators alike can save valuable time by finding what they need online – often at a cheaper price and with more availability than regional competitors can offer.

Everything from basic mud flaps and mirrors to specific engine designs and easy-to-convert rear end cutoffs are ready to meet – and exceed – all of your commercial trucking needs. Our listing of truck parts is constantly updated and easily searchable, so locating out-of-date or late-model trucking parts a breeze.
Choosing Heavy Truck Parts for Sale
No matter what you are buying, you want to invest in truck parts that are readily available, long-lasting, and compatible with the original equipment. If you are buying from a third-party manufacturer, check customer reviews and the Better Business Bureau before finalizing the purchase.
- Heavy Truck Transmissions – The three main types are:
- Manual – Requires a skilled driver to maintain fuel efficiency and prevent damage by correctly shifting. The least expensive transmission type, but capable of causing the most damage if used incorrectly.
- Automated Manual – A computer interacts with special sensors to control the clutch and shifter, preventing damage from improperly shifting gears. Provides the longest clutch life and better fuel efficiency.
- Automatic – A torque converter connects to the driveline, eliminating the need for manual shifting. Best for operations that require a lot of stop-and-go activity.
- Heavy Truck Engines – Keep these specifications in mind:
- Horsepower – How much force the engine produces (also determines how hard attachments can work when using a power takeoff system).
- Torque – How much force is used to turn the wheels (more torque usually means a better rate of maneuverability).
- Cylinders – The less cylinders an engine has, the less fuel is consumed. Smaller engines with less cylinders are generally easier and cheaper to repair and maintain, though they are limited when it comes to towing or carrying large loads.
Selecting Used Semi Truck Parts
Always consider at the following with used semi truck parts:
- If you are buying a part from another country, it should be tested to North American standards.
- It’s often better to buy from a trusted name brand with a proven record of customer satisfaction than an unknown company selling an alternative version for slightly cheaper.
- Try to match brands as much as possible for a consistent performance.
- Try to get original equipment manufacturing (OEM) parts for the chassis, body and interior if possible for a more uniform look (and therefore a higher resale value).
