:DHello to All guys !

Believe or not even if I rebuilt my beloved 1985 Dodge Ramcharger purchasing all the parts in US, as here in Italy you may imagine the problems and the costs to find and buy parts for American Cars, I have not still find an online shop which could ship to me the following parts all together in the same box:

1) a pair of door weather strip (door gasket)
2) a pair of alloy or stainless steel sill plates
3) a pair of driving chrome mirrors, I like the small model and not the flat type with three legs
4) a headliner kit in oxblood red (with the spray glue included or self adesive tape.......)

I tryied Autozone, Ebay, Summit Racing, Jeg's, 1aa Automotive, Ebay, and many more, but unfortunatelly there's not a shop which has all the parts listed.
The bad side of the story is that Dodge dealers in US don't ship oversea, and italian Dodge dealers don't know Ramchargers but they sell Grand Cherokee and other European made car boxes with have nothing to do with the real THING !
Do you know someone or a shop which could ship all the parts together in the same box ?
I don't want to pay four different shippings and pay four time the Customs' duties which are very expensive.

Thanks

Marcello

have you tried jc whitney?
they have weatherstrip kit, (doors) both sides 119.95
2 types of mirrors from 7.95-32.95 each

i didn't find the other two but maybe if you email them or call them, they have alot of stuff that isn't on the website too.
hope this helps

You could get headliner material and weatherstripping from an upholstery supplier that does automotive. Probably somewhere in your locality.

Marcello...ask your Dodge dealer if he can order part # 55023781 that is the door weatherstrip...you'll need Qty 2.

I don't think you'll find all of what you need at one place. I'll look around some more.

These 2 dealers say they ship worldwide...

problem is dodge dealerships over here in europe don't stock parts for american dodge vehicles, sure they have neon parts and stuff, but very few truck parts, they look at you funny when you say ram or ramcharger and they laugh when you ask about 4x4's. unless it's jeep of course

Murdoch...I understand that the dealership doesnt stock parts but the parts network for Mopar is worldwide. Just because the dealer does not have the parts book for a truck doesnt mean he cant try to order the part through the warehouse. One of the RCC members in Belgium can get parts through his dealer if he has the part numbers..they are expensive. You never know until you ask? That's why I sent Marcello the part number. Sometimes there are contractual arrangements with Chrysler and the US Military to keep certain parts available overseas also...you never know?

or you could have someone here in the us buy all the parts with you paying of course and box it all in one box and shipp it to you so that you only have the pay the import fee once and the stuff you are wanting isn't that heavy so shipping shouldn't be too costly. just an idea

I have done this before for one of our members in Belgium and the cheapest, fastest way to ship is by Air Parcel Post. UPS wants you to mortgage your house! :eek:

My dad is the parts manager at a chrysler jeep dealer, I asked and he said he'd be able to take care of you. his e-mail is [email protected] Just let him know the stats on what you have and what your looking for.

Gee...what a bunch of nice people here! ;D
If need be, you can ship any parts to me and I'll rebox them all and ship them to him since i all ready no the ropes for the customs paperwork and can acces the proper package sizes for international shipment..Well Marcello...where are you? :)
