I have not, but I see their search results all the time when I try to look for a car part. Their prices don't seem special though, looks like full retail... I stick to ebay and amazon mostly

I've been of their site a number of times.  Nice photos.  Prices are in ball park depending on the type of part. 

I have found RockAuto to be best source for my Toyotas with the lowest prices for web distribution, selection, and delivery- for most parts I've purchased so far.

Gnarls.

Price shopping is one thing, but knowing the integrity of a seller is another....

Also never buy wheel bearings from rock auto. My nephew (against being told) ordered some for his z71 and they lasted just over 5500 miles. It was complete garbage.

I run koyo if I can. I put national in my 06 taco when the stock finally started roaring at 347k.

Buying a Chinese produced "no name" or knock-off anything is probably a risk for bad quality - at least that has been my experience.

Sadly, I have learned a painful lesson over the past year on my rebuild.

I will be very careful from now on about the source and quality of what I buy for my truck.... or anything else I spend my money on!!

Being frugal can save you money.   Being frugal and ignorant can cost you money.
