Hording YJ parts

In the 7 years that my YJ has been in the family, Ive only came across one single YJ at the local scrapyards. Went junkyarding today and low and behold TWO YJs side by side. Both have a decent amount of rust but have lots of usable parts left. Are there any parts that I should look for that may be tough to find later? Mainly parts that are prone to break. Im bad about hording car parts on the chance that I may at some point need them.

Transfer case, front axles, drive shafts, gas tank, engine, if there is an AX15 trans grab that for sure!

Or, start stripping anything that looks good off of either of them and sell the parts on craigslist, or e-bay or here.

I would love to find a YJ in a crap yard here, but there aren't any!

CTO Valve, charcoal canister and any other emissions related parts are usually hard to come by. Sometimes people need the whole system to reinstall to pass emissions. You could make a few bucks or really help someone out here on the forums someday.

I also think there are some parts on the steering column that are really hard to find.

Thanks guys thats exactly what I was looking for. One still has the complete power/drivetrain. I have to go back for at least the AX-15 in it. Seeing as Im still running an AX-5.

CHL, Im not sure if the ones there have an ashtray. Im planning on doing a mini CB ashtray install so the one in my Wrangler may be available...
