MANES Truck Parts Review

So I just happened to fined MANES Truck Parts website and I have been wondering where it has been all my life. I have to use multiple vendors because some either don't ship to Alaska or the price is ridiculous! Because FEDEX doesn't come to Alaska EVER LOL. I digress,

I just order some stuff from MANES, the rockers that I needed they had and shipping was pretty damn good. I do however wish they posted what gauge thickness the floor extensions are. They have a lot of awesome parts that I need right now. I was just curious if anyone has used this vendor. They seem squared away. I was looking at brothers just out of curiosity and came to the realization that I would rather spend 300 dollars more in shipping than purchase anything from them. ( There reviews are horrendous) anyway anyone have some input? Thanks everyone.

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Early on in my truck building career (so to speak) I bought a lot of parts from them. They were right on my way when I went to Texas and I would always stop and pick up the stuff on my way home. Family operation, great people and almost always had what I needed. Then they moved East off of the beaten path and I quit going there. The first time I couldn't find them and it kind of turned me off.

I then found a small parts dealer fairly close to me and started buying parts from him.

I don't think you can go wrong with Manes....

Re: MANES Truck Parts Review

I Live in The Yukon I can understand that

I find so many companies go funny like I asked them to send me sanctioned materials to Iran the moment i say Canada many give a ludicrous shipping price

I can say dealing with Summit racing Brothers trucks Lmc Year One and Rock Auto the truck shops are will ship some of them though the shipping price has sky rocketed I rarely order from Lmc any more

Large heavy parts like panels drums etc i usually buy locally since shipping can be a big cost increase

Re: MANES Truck Parts Review

Agree, Manes is real good. Sometimes used OEM too, they sold me a BBC heat stove and pipe.

Re: MANES Truck Parts Review

I have had good luck with Manes. They stock some hard to find items that others don't and I scored a pair of extreme bend tow hooks there also.

Re: MANES Truck Parts Review

I've never heard of them, except on this site recently. What I have heard was all good.
Could somebody post their website link or email address? I'd like to check them out.

Re: MANES Truck Parts Review

I have been friends with the owner (Ron Manes) for years. Him and his wife run the business, just the two of them. Excellent people!

I've spoken to both, mostly her. I recall old school matter of fact and friendly.
