I just checked car-part.com for my zipcode, and I would be looking at 100 miles each way with 300-500 bucks for the rear regardless what kind of gears or what year it is. The front is about the same if I pick it from a cherokee.
here's the thing: there's about a dozen local junkyards that aren't even on car-part.com.
Those are the ones to call and check around. Especially the ones in the middle of the city... because the ones way out in the boonies have already been picked clean by the guys out there, they know what a 4X4 is. The ones in the city have more hardcore parts on them, but they tend to charge more because real estate costs more in the middle of downtown.
