At Woodhouse Chrysler Jeep® Dodge Blair near Council Bluffs, we sell lots of great new cars, trucks, vans, and SUVs from some of the most recognized automotive brands in the United States.

Many of our Nebraska drivers also enjoy customizing their vehicles through the use of parts and accessories. Whether you’re trying to boost performance or enhance your car’s slick good looks, adding special touches after your purchase is a popular choice for many of our Woodhouse Chrysler Jeep Dodge Blair customers.

What does OEM mean, and why should I choose OEM parts?

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, which, in the case of new vehicles purchased from Woodhouse Chrysler Jeep Dodge of Blair, means using MOPAR genuine parts. OEM parts and accessories are high-quality parts that are designed and built according to manufacturer specifications. They have been made especially for your Jeep or RAM truck, which means they’ll fit perfectly and look great every time.

Buying aftermarket or third-party accessories for your Dodge, RAM, Jeep, or Chrysler can mean that you’re sacrificing quality and performance, and possibly even spending more money than necessary. Also, if an aftermarket accessory is less expensive than its OEM counterpart, it’s unlikely to last as long or come with a manufacturer-backed warranty like original equipment. There are lots of opportunities to save money when it comes to buying and driving a new car, but cutting corners with part and accessories is not something we recommend at Woodhouse Chrysler Jeep Dodge.

If you have any questions about what OEM means, or what accessories may be available for your particular RAM truck near Council Bluffs, simply contact Woodhouse Chrysler Jeep Dodge Blair today. You can call our parts department directly, or stop by our Blair, NE dealership.
