Craigslist. Last week I needed a single head for my CJ5. AMC 360 heads. I found one on Craigslist, 45 mile drive away. I drove out, he had 4 heads and exhaust manifolds; I bought the whole lot for $50.

Ya gotta find other Jeepers !!! You need to " NETWORK" these guys.... Get to know em in your area and you can get about anything you want . Somebody is always tearing something apart.
Another thing.... Bigger Wrecking Yards have Computerized inventory and usually they are linked up with other yards.... They can do a search for you and locate your parts in another yard. "BH"

BTW, I also saw the head that I needed (still on the complete engine!) at a local "pick and pull" salvage yard. I'd have gone and pulled that one if I hadn't found one to purchase.
