    Hello All...

    any suggestions out there on the best, most legitimate and reliable online site to buy factory parts at good prices? I drive a 2001 PreRunner and I want to start replacing and/or fixing some of its worn or broken cosmetic parts.


    Thanks!

    I've used Toyotapartszone.com and 1stToyotaParts.com both. No problems, excellent service and good pricing. Of the two the 1st Toyota one was a bit cheaper per part.

    I tend to look at the part schematics (you can download them online) and get my part numbers and order that way. That way I'm sure what I'm ordering and everything is correct. Send them your VIN number as well so they can verify if there is a number change on a part or choice.

    Lastly, if you are ordering trim pieces be aware that some pieces MAY need to be painted. Your truck is newer so you may not run into this, but mine being a 95 I ordered a plastic seat belt mount bolt cover. 1st emailed me a note to say that the piece was available, but the colour was slightly different as the matching colour was no longer available. I just got some plastic primer and some interior trim spray paint from the local auto store and painted it to match. No problem.

    Hope that helps.

    Cheers

    www.Rockauto.com is also a good one that has pretty good service and fair pricing.
