Episode 16: Spicer U-Joints have been the industry standard for heavy-duty applications for years. Most of my customers work in off-road conditions and they swear by the Spicer U-Joint. If you’re thinking about the Spicer U-Joint in the red box then you are thinking about what Spicer calls their Genuine OE Quality u-joint. But did you know that Spicer has another line of u-joints called Spicer Select that comes in a purple box?In this episode, I will explain the differences and provide you with Spicer’s suggestions of when you should use the Spicer Genuine OE Quality u-joint and when you should consider the Spicer Select Aftermarket u-joint.The warranty policy according to SpicerParts.com/SpicerSelect is 18-months or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.  Next Steps:Visit HeavyDutyPartsReport.com to subscribe, rate, and review the podcast on your favorite podcast player. If you would prefer to watch these episodes go to The Heavy-Duty Parts Report YouTube Channel, subscribe and make sure to click the bell so that you are notified when a new episode goes live. Schedule a 15-minute call with Jamie Irvine to talk about the solutions Jamie offers to lower your cost-per-mile and help you earn more profit.

Episode 7: When you think of buying a heavy-duty part for a truck or trailer you probably think about buying original equipment parts through a dealer or aftermarket parts through a parts distributor. When you think about buying used parts, you probably think about going to a “junkyard” and finding a part with unknown performance and reliability because the part is, well, used.In this episode, I interview a representative of a company that is trying to change our perceptions of “used” parts that come from “junkyards” to “recycled parts” that come from “recyclers.”Brendon Gamblin is a Sales Representative at TruckPartsInventory.com and they are the only resource that connects buyers looking for recycled heavy-duty parts with hundreds of sellers around North America. Website of Guest: TruckPartsInventory.comWatch the demonstration of how the website works on The Heavy-Duty Parts Report YouTube Channel.
