Returnable goods must be in new and re-sealable condition, and accompanied by the original invoice. Parts will not be accepted for return after one year. All returns and cancelled Special Orders are subject to a 50% restocking charge. Freight charges are non-refundable. Special orders, electrical components, and tire chains are not returnable.

Some of our suppliers have VIN-decoders for parts like Filters, Belts, Tensioners and some Engine Accessories. We can also use most medium duty truck VIN numbers to reference Hydraulic Brake Parts. We can also use your VIN number to reference the year, make, model and engine of your HD vehicle and use that information to help us reference parts. In some cases, we need part numbers off of the items you are looking for, and in many cases, our experienced staff can use pictures sent from your mobile device to reference your parts.

No, the Bendix ADB22X and ADB22XLT rationalized calipers will not interchange. You can use a complete caliper, either 22X or 22XLT, and use the carrier or bracket that comes with the complete caliper and replace the entire unit.
As per the table below from the ISO standard 22241-3, the shelf-life or expiry date is a function of storage temperature and initial alkalinity. Alkalinity in our DEF is very low and plays an insignificant factor.
If stored below 25°C, the DEF will maintain its urea strength for at least 18 months.
DEF which has been exposed to high temperatures for extended periods of time will have a decrease in urea strength and reduce its SCR performance efficiency. Vehicle sensors may indicate low solution strength and the product should be tested with a refractometer to determine the actual strength.
Shelf life as a function of temperature
Constant Ambient Storage Temperature
Minimum Shelf Life
|â©½ 25 áµƒ||18|
NOTE: The main factors taken into account to define the shelf life in this table are the ambient storage temperature and the initial alkalinity of AUS 32. The difference in evaporation between vented and non-vented storage containers is an additional factor.
áµƒ To prevent decomposition of AUS 32, prolonged transportation or storage above 25°C should be avoided.
áµ‡ Significant loss of shelf life: check every batch before use.
No, to use a rubber tarp tie as a cargo restraint is a completely different application than what it was designed for and one it is not suited for. It's inherently large elongation under load, while an advantage when used to tension a tarp, is a detriment if it used as a cargo restraint. Any piece of cargo secured by a rubber tarp tie will move, and potentially become loose from the transporting vehicle, if there is any significant dynamic force or wind generated force applied to the cargo.

Bigger doesn't necessarily mean better. Going up too high in battery CCAs could potentially cause damage to the starter. Too much power could place excessive heat in the solenoid - and cause even bigger problems.
