LMC vs. NPD - Major Price Difference

I'm going to be ordering some parts soon. Door seals/weatherstrip, anti-rattle kit, and some cab corner repair panels. I've been making my shopping list and comparing prices between LMC and NPD.

I priced out the same exact parts from LMC and from NPD...

LMC= $275.55
NPD= $189.90

That's over $85 difference! What gives? Am I missing something here?

Does anyone have experience with NPD? I've used LMC in the past for my other trucks, but never used NPD before.

Any other places that have better deals than these two?

Thanks.

I never used LMC I've only used NPD and have been very happy, fast service and when my seat upholstrey didn't match (i was my error) they paid shipping back and got me the right stuff! When i start my diesel swap I'm gonna be calling them a lot

I've used LMC but wish I had used NPD. Nothing was really a problem, but shipping time to my location wasn't correct. Likely out of LMCS hands but I was told 3 days and it was like 5 or 6. NPD I believe is closer to where I live.

I have used both. On some stuff NPD is higher and the same goes for LMC, it depends on what you are buying.

So far on my truck I have exclusively used LMC, they have been cheaper on the items I have been buying so far, and they have a warehouse in Kansas. I ordered some stuff monday and it got here wednesday. I used NPD on my chevelle alot.

I bought my window channel rubber from LMC, but I was in KC already. In fact, I was at the LMC location picking up some RX7 parts from their Black Dragon division.
KS sales tax was a lot less than shipping.

Another place to try is BroncoGraveyard. They have some good deals on full weatherstrip kits.

Yeah looks like Bronco graveyard has a complete kit for $180 that includes the vent window rubber...which is something that I didn't include in my LMC/NPD searches.

I prefer NPD, because they just so happen to have a warehouse about 10-15 minutes away from me.

NPD quality seems to be slightly higher than LMC, which is know to carry lower quality sheet metal.
