I was at my local dealership to pick up the rest of my OE oil cooler parts from the Tacoma tow package. When the price for two hoses, a few clips, and o-rings came out to over $120! I normally expect the markup of 30% or so, but this felt like they were taking me for a ride... off a cliff. After some searching and remembering Sparks Parts was around, gave them a search and all the parts are considered "wholesale". Whatever it was, it was less than half of what my dealership was charging and shipped to my door! I reached out to them to see if they offer any specials for us and Micah got back to me. For now, you can save 5% with code "FJC".

Mods, if this isn't allowed, just let me know. You can edit it, but just leaving a legit review and maybe someone can save a few bucks.

I got my super charger through their group buy and some other stuff too... They're great. I didn't know about the 5% off though... Thanks James!
You must have got a heck of a deal! Maybe one day I can join the SC crew :grin: Sometimes if you leave parts in your cart on the Sparks site for a couple hours, they'll e-mail you a discount code to save some on shipping (as long as you're logged in).

So-Cal, CA vs Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Sparks is a Supporting Vendor here and have assisted me with questions and part numbers whenever I email them. :cheers:
Not that I'm surprised by their southern hospitality, but I like supporting good businesses. Didn't know they were still a SV on here. Good people!

I called my local Toyota dealer with a few part numbers. Those cheaper prices are concurrent with my wholesale/commercial discount prices. Looks like they are just selling to the public at that price. And why not? They still get the sale, even if at a cut rate.

Keep in mind, Cost and List are two different things. Cost is what we pay, list is what we sell at. Have to keep the doors open somehow.
