help with aftermarkrt parts.

Im fixing up my 86 Chevy Silverado,which needs new fenders,doors,bedsides and rockerpanels. I cant afford new oem panels,so my question is;Are all aftermarket panels generally in the same league quality wise? I've narrowed it down to three companies that I could possibly order from that have the truck parts I need. Certifit, classic parts of America[formerly Chevy Duty] and L.M.C. truck. All three say their parts are made in Taiwan. And of course all three say their parts are better than the competition. The certifit parts are about half the price as the others,and like I said,the are all made over seas. I guess my question is;is one aftermarket part better than the other or are they all made about the same?? Would I be better off ordering from the cheapest place? I know their all going to need a bit of tweaking to fit right. I just dont want to put a part on that is going to rust off in a year or two. Any help you guys could give me on this would be very much appreciated!!! Thanks in advance. The truck will be a daily driver,not a show truck.

also try www.millsupply.com they sell body panels at a deecent price. i bought 2 front fenders and innerwheel wells from them for my 87 S10 . just as good as OEM. one thing to do is check with the BBB website if people have any complaints about them they might be on there.or ask the company for some refs.
