It really depends on the parts. All of the vendors have quality stuff, but their pricing is different. You just have to shop around for the best price!

EDIT: Feedback - I've bought my stuff from PMM, Retro Solutions, Ebay, Tousley Ford, Napa, Discount Tire, Cummins, and Home Depot.

I've bought the majority of my aftermarket parts from autoanything.com - also, ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS call whoever you're gonna be ordering from, there's usually more coupons and/or promotions that sales reps can "hook" you up with.

It REALLY matters what you are looking for. There are some parts that you are better off with stock parts (ie: oil filters, fuel filters, air filters, engine parts).
Buying Ford Factory (ok, so to be technical, international..) parts for your rig will be cheapest through a Ford dealer (cheapest dealer is by far Tousley Ford).

Im getting analog gauges through strictly diesel. How do people spend $800+ on the cts w/expandable this and that? fuel pressure, boost, egt...tranny if you want a 4th one. save at least $300 bux over the cts. jmo.

Your limited by the gauges you choose. The electronic gauges can access all the existing sensors on the engine. 5 or 6 analog gauges will run you the same cost, and you can't change what you are watching.
The most affordable electronic gauge set out there is the scangauge2, which will run you about $165 or so, and can monitor every sensor on the truck. Because of this, you can troubleshoot using this. For instance, there are no analog gauges out there for IPR%, ICP desired, ICP actual (which help greatly for determining high pressure oil leaks).
