2001 engine parts

i have a 2001 dodge 3500, 13100 miles. the rings are shot, but there is no wear on the piston walls. where can i buy new pistons, rings, oil pump, head bolts, rod bearings online, the dealer here wants 250 bucks for each piston. thanks for any help.

Go to Cummins and get your parts if you want the best. Although there is some nice aftermarket pieces out there as well available from various retailers.

I got to ask though, how is all that wore out with 13,100 miles? Even if that was a typo and should be 131,000 miles I still can not see how that motor is shot unless it naver had an oil change.

yep, its 131,000 miles. i bought it from a used lot knowing it was blowing oil. got it for 5-K he orig wanted 9-K. the hose from the air filter to the turbo was very very loose and had been sucking in dust. thanks,

Found everything at diesel specialist in baton rouge, la. pistons, rings, piston pins, mains, upper and lower gasket set, thermstate, rod bearings, oil pump, & head bolts. all cummin's parts for my engine.2300 bucks including tax.
a little more than half of what the dodge dealer wanted for everything.
