    I would like to see some good ones myself. Found LMC (LMCtruck.com) and got their catalog. Ordered a pretty decent list of "nickle and dime" stuff today, like latches for the cargo doors, door strikers, etc.

    Talk to the dealer, Jim is a member here who will work with you to get factory parts, at least ones still available.

    I wouldn't suggest anything other than OEM if it's available. You MAY think it's crazy, some parts MIGHT be double the cost of LMC, but some may be the same or even less, I've seen it all ways. In any case, OEM lasted for how many years? The aftermarket stuff I've received from LMC in some cases was pretty good, but I have no inclination to believe it's nearly as durable as OEM, I've received at least 3 seals that were completely mis-made, and the "velvet" coating on those that have it, doesn't last for more than a few minutes of use. :(
