Went to the local "pull a part" yard. Got passenger side window regulator, passenger side door lock and center a/c vent to fix my broken one. Installed both window reg and door lock when I got home. All for the low price of $36. I will be going back for both driver side and read passenger side locks once they get another 99-2002 GC instock

I have never seen a WJ, WK, or any Wrangler style Jeep in my pull a part.... they must sell them off as soon as they get them.... I don't think I have ever seen a Libby. Lots of ZJ, XJ, and few Wagoneers.

I think I just got lucky. The yard down here has a website to lookup what vehicles they have on the lot. But not what parts are left. They had about 10 GC's ranging from 93-99. I got lucky with what I got off the 99, it was pretty picked over. also lucky that everything worked since I had no way to test it there.

you all know of car-part.com right? Many yards take inventory of their parts and that website if they are participating will help you find exactly what you want and how much it is. I found a 242 at my local yard for $100 and I called it and the guy who knows me answered, he said its out of the Jeep, tested, and on the shelf and mine for $75. Before a junkyard crushes a Jeep they will often take a bunch of parts off it that have yet to be sold and store them somewhere

My b-day's coming up so I got to spend Saturday washing, claying, waxing, and cleaning the Jeep as opposed to spending time with the old lady. 2nd time waxing her (the jeep, not the old lady) in 2 years. Brought the Brilliant back to the Black Pearl! Getting the front windows tinted Wed. for one of my presents.

replaced my fuel pump with a MOPAR unit from Kolak .....finally got tired of advanced auto's shenanigans after 2 pumps. i did learn that cutting a hole in the floor is much less hassle than dropping the tank.

How did you mark the area to know so exactly where to cut? I'm thinking of using my plasma cutter to make a hole for just in case. My 00 WJ has the OEM pump still, no problems, but you never know when/where that could change. If I have a pre made hole, I could change pumps on the side of the road.

I understand this, but still his hole is just about as close to being an exact match as anyone could ever hope for... I have seen people cut a square flap that they bent out of the way, but this is almost a carbon copy of the top of the pump.

Next question, is there any need to cover the hole just to keep something from falling out, any road noise?, or road debris?
