Whether you have a new or vintage car, there are times when wandering down to your local dealer doesn’t work. Maybe they charge double list price, making a nice thousand-percent profit like the jewelry store; maybe the parts just aren’t in stock any more; maybe you live in Germany and the local dealer is too far away. Regardless, we have some options: aftermarket, used, and new-from-cheaper-dealers. (There are several authorized Stellantis/Mopar dealers who charge roughly 20% under list price.)
This list is kept up to date, but there may still be some bad links; things do change. We are not endorsing anyone! This is just a list for convenience.

Dealers: authorized Mopar parts, at a discount
The one problem with Mopar dealers is that none of them have parts as their primary business, leading to poorly designed, slow, sometimes confusing web sites; crazy high restock fees; and high shipping. Many parts are non-returnable. These are the ones I’ve been able to find. Pricing is usually 20% below list but can vary rather dramatically. Sometimes they sell the same part on ebay or Wal-Mart.com with free shipping and lower prices.
- We R Mopar: Cheaper than usual shipping, 20% restock fee.
- Mopar Parts Giant: claims up to 40% off. Customer pays shipping on non-defective items, they “work with you” on defective items; 20% restock fee may be waived in some cases.
- Koller Dodge / Pomoco: May have left the parts business while leaving their site up.
Body parts and lighting (especially for restoration)
- Daniel Stern Lighting sells intelligent lighting upgrades for new, antique, and classic cars.
- Metro Moulded Parts for weatherstripping and such; many new replacements for old cars

- Scotts’ Old Auto Rubber is like Metro but in Australia
- TaillightKing and Taillights.com; the latter sells both interior and exterior plastic pieces, and can make custom items.

David Zatz started what was to become the world’s biggest, most comprehensive Mopar site in 1994 as he pursued a career in organizational research and change. After a chemo-induced three-year break from Web sites, during which he wrote three car books covering Vipers, minivans, and Jeeps, he returned with some friends to create StellPower.com, which is intended to end up as an enduring partnership.
