A year in cover stories

Blogs Lucas Deal December 3, 2013

With Thanksgiving in the rearview mirror and Christmas just around the bend, the year is quickly coming to an end. Truck Parts & Service magazine has been busy throughout, and with the release of our Buyers’ Guide this month’s print edition, I think now is a good time to look back on what else has graced the pages of Truck Parts & Service in 2013.

Below are links to every cover story and related sidebar featured in Truck Parts & Service over the last 11 months. If you don’t subscribe to our print magazine, below is a great way to catch up and see some of what you missed. If you do get the magazine but weren’t able to read every one, hopefully the links below will help you fill in the gaps.

And for our loyal monthly readers, I hope links below remind you of some of the topics we addressed this year and how they may impact your business moving forward.

My goal with every article in Truck Parts & Service is to inform, educate and assist. I want to tell you what’s up in the industry, how it could affect your business and give you advice from industry experts on how to proceed. The independent aftermarket is a wonderful industry, and Truck Parts & Service is incredibly focused on helping the market remain prosperous for decades to come.

So, without further ado, here are the cover stories featured in Truck Parts & Service magazine in 2013.

January: A Natural Revolution

The TP&S year started with an entire issue dedicated to natural gas, and its potential to grow in popularity as a commercial vehicle fuel. We looked at how NatGas engines are designed, and requirements for maintaining them in the aftermarket.
