Parts shopping Friday morning

Taking the wife out and hitting the local pick a parts and wrecking yards on Friday. Need a few things ie; family roll cage, rear bumper/tire carrier (in my dreams), tow hooks, tail gate and what ever else I can get my grubby hands on. I am feeling a little adventurous. E-mailed a couple of them asking if they had any wranglers and such. We will see if they answer.

I hit up a junk yard I knew had 5 tj's in it....walked out with one piece. They sadly wanted new or almost new for every part. Oh well. There loss I had 3 grand in my pocket for parts. Spent $10 there.

I ran into that also, when last time I went to a wrecking yard. Guy was pretty cocky. When I first walked in I told him vehicles I was looking for and he said good luck we don't have any. I told him well what about the ones up on the hill in the back. Needless to say he let me walk back there and I found everything I needed but when he gave me the quote I laughed at him and walked out taking another customer with me.
