Custom Fitments

Our plugin will allow you to add/modify/delete fitment, as well as assign fitment data to non-SDC products. You can do this by clicking on the “Assign” button from the fitment list, then selecting the “+” button on the fitment edit page. Check the boxes off next to the products matching year/make/model/submodel, as desired. The search bar at the top of the “Assign to products” page can help to locate specific products easily. Once you confirm to add products to fitment, you must click on the “Save” button in the fitment edit section. If you would like to add any further vehicle or vehicle model/submodel data, please repeat the steps above and include all.

If you can’t find the fitment you want, please click on the “New YMMS” button from the fitment list page to add your own ACES data. Type Make/Model/Submodel in the search bar to find the vehicle that you are looking for. After you select the vehicle, all years matching it will populate. Delete the years that will not fit your parts then click the “Add” button. Once you have created the additional fitment, please remember to click the “Save” button to add the new fitments to your website. Congratulations! You can now assign products to your new fitments successfully.
