Know Your Model

Know Your Model

Most of the complaints that I hear from people ordering chrome are that dealerships order them the wrong parts. That’s really easy to do when you’re working with half the information. With so many different variations of a particular make of truck on the market these days, that just adds to the confusion. Luckily, we’re here to help. If you’ve been burned by a dealership ordering you the wrong parts, we will do everything in our power to make sure you don’t get burned again. It all starts with the simple task of learning your model.

Did you know that a 2005 Peterbilt 379 were made with three different types of doors? Well, it’s true. And if you don’t know what you’re looking for it’s really easy to miss this little detail. Many people will settle for “making it work” with a part that was not designed for their truck, but we’d like to do better and provide a part that not only looks good, but meshes so well you’d swear it was meant to be there.

If you’re looking for a part and just can’t seem to find the right one to fit your truck, give us a call at (765) 427-9268, message us on our social media platforms, or send us a quick email about your situation to [email protected]

We’re offering 20% off MSRP for Peterbilt & Kenworth door accessories. Plus, during the month of December, you’ll receive 50% off your shipping charges as our Christmas gift to you. Additionally, for every $50 you spend with Jacks, you’ll be entered to win a hoodie displaying our logo and our motto, “If your rig don’t shine, you don’t know Jack!”
