-complete XJ D44
-complete mint woodgrain interior from a 96 XJ Country. I wanted the whole Jeep but didn't have enough cash for it ($1600, a steal in 2006); it was an absolutely mint, fairly low mileage new arrival sitting in a clean junkyard outside of Gatlinburg, the only problem being a dead trans
-several mint overhead consoles from XJ's and ZJ's (still have a few in my workshop I believe)
-excellent condition bucket seat out of a DJ that I thought about putting in my CJ if I can find one more
-complete 5.9 hood louvers for ~$10 (still sitting in the shop, either use them or sell them one of these days); wanted the interior but the doors had been left open (huuuuuuuge junkyard pet peeve of mine) and there was a lot of moisture inside; the motor was complete but I had no way of getting it
-clean black leather interior from a WJ (but I had to leave the driver's seat behind. In the time that I left the WJ to grab tools, someone came by that obviously didn't have tools and actually ripped the seat straight off of the mounting bolts and broke the back support also; the only thing they took was the set of 10-way switches...)
-I found another XJ D44 a few weeks ago but didn't have a way to get it out of there. By the time I got back to the yard it was gone. I regretfully left the 44 on my old XJ when I sold it to a friend because I had no time to swap the D35 back in. I would much rather have the 44 sitting by my shop right now than the 35, which I probably can't give away on Craigslist...

I've been finding some decent tools here lately, just randomly left in vehicles. Also, in the van section I've found brand new tubs of different adhesives and sealants that were left behind. Haven't found any teeth or fingers yet tho!

The best thing that I have found was a D44 from a 2001 TJ from a CFC that I picked up for about $130. Even after having the bearings replaced, I think I came out pretty good.

about 10 years ago was looking in a local U-Pullit JY for parts for my wifes 1985 GT Stang ragtop project...

Noticed a Jalapeno red 1986 GT ragtop still sitting on a rollback out front,asked about it,said it just came in,they payed 500.00 for it with a bad trans as far as they knew...

Long story short,i bought it for 800.00 figuring i could at least get the parts we needed,plus sell the perfect condition ragtop doors the 85-86 only GT nose peice and get my money back easily plus other parts to sell...

He still had the title just with the women's signature only,so it wasn't a salvage title...

Got it home..trans would only go up to second gear(auto)..engine ran fine...ended up being a 35.00 vacuum modulator on the outside of the trans...
The ragtop needed replaced,,opened the trunk,,a brand new in the box replacement top minus the rear glass window section,the new top was black,the old one was white,so i bought some SEM black vinyl paint and matched the rear window section...
And the best part,,noticed a lil sticker on the 5.0"Jasper engines"..found out the engine was only 2 years old and had the GT40P heads...lol

We ended up keepin it because it was in better shape then her 85,plus 86 was the first year for EFI instead the 85's crappy TBI and i repainted it,someone had put a funky heavy gold metallic clearcoat over the factory Jalapeno red.

I did a few minor things to her 85 and sold it for 3500.00 and kept the 86..untill about 4 years ago when a friggin dear ran in front of her and she ended up in a ditch and it shoved the unibody nose in the air...

Front and rear axles from a 93 yj with 4.88 gears already installed. I bought them because the axle tags showed 4.10 and I was looking for lower gears since mine had only had 3.07 gears. ...Awesome. Only paid 250.00 for the pair

Hoping to find a Dana 44 rear from a Commanche. It will be a direct swap.

Anyone near Moultrie Ga. COX PICK AND PULL has a decent selection of explorers with 8.8s and a few xjs on the yard. Sometimes you can catch a waggy non CAD D44 and usually a yj and tj or two. It will cost ya a buck to get on the yard. They have cars and trucks there.
