Nearly brand new taurus 2-speed fan (still had part # stickers)
York 210 compressor
AX-15/NP231 combo for $200 (super low mileage)

If I had known better I could have scored two sets of waggy D44's, but I didn't know what they were at the time.

Hoping to find a 4.10 8.8 this summer

A bunch of XJs



I kid I kid

But really I plan on snagging a bunch of XJ leaf springs for fine tuning my spring backs on the back of my 1 ton TJ to make a bastard back.

Always check under the carpet seams.. people hide $ and forget about it... it's something I learned working at car stereo shop.. it paid for my parts more than once...

Foot warmer

Found this heater duct splitter;


An MC2100, CS144 alternator (140 amp), rear side marker lights from a ford S/W may have been an escort,

210 York compressor from a Mercedes, E-core coil to go with my TeamRush,

Still looking for a Taurus fan & an 8.8, & a Durango steering box.

Just curious where would you put one of those on a jeep. Might make a good bump stop.

The junk yard is a gold mine for me. I have found power steering(pump,gearbox,hoses,brackets,steering stabilizer)for $100, mirror and bracket $5, Besttop seats $50 for both and a rearend AMC 20 with the one piece axles for $100. Happy hunting!

Not a single TJ. Seriously, i don't know why, but there are zero TJ's in any Nashville area scrap yards. I call all the time, nothing. I think it is a conspiracy.

A bunch of XJ's in my area but not many useful parts, I did find 2 YJ's (to my surprise) and I snagged the battery tray that's in good shape (for my CJ) and it only set me back 53 cents.
