pick'n'pull shopping list

going to a pick'n'pull this weekend with my relatively new jeep (new to me, obviously).

things on my list:
- 'family style' roll cage
- replacement front seats
- new-to-me radiator

things I'm interested in:
- carbs? I'm a FI kid, but so far this carter is driving me nuts. do I have to buy a new replacement (non-carter), or am I likely to find something compatible here?
- taurus fan. I keep hearing this is Way Of The Future, so I should probably look for one to hold on to until I need it.

what else have I not discovered yet but will need?

usually you wont find anything jeep in a junk yard unless its a jeep specific junkyard. im sure you can get the rad, seats from another vehicle and the taurus fan.

you could also do a search and find out what alternator is an upgrade from ours, a blower motor out of a blazer and maybe an xj passenger front axle and the front drive shaft if you plan on doing an sye(if you havnt already)

The mercury sable has the same fan set up and you're almost guaranteed to find one left intact over a Taurus. While you're hanging around ford/mercury browse by the explorer/mountaineers and grab an 8.8.
