buckshot500 A trip to the local scrap iron yard will sometimes make your whole week too.
You have to look at everything closely, but you can find some decent project steel.

Last one I was at had a bunch of shop sized air compressors. The mechanical items weren't working but the tanks looked good.

The research is key, for these junkyard upgrades! I spend lots of time & effort gathering info before I drop the hammer on a given swap. Only when I am completely convinced, it's gonna be worth the effort.

It's a great idea, & I'm glad he posted it cause it worked really well for me.

Cool, I did not know that!

I think the thing that makes the Durango box desirable is the quicker ratio though. Is the S-10 box a faster ratio too?

Durango steering box is a good swap. 98 had an available snowplow unit, but it didn't have the fast ratio. The98 non plow box was fast ratio. 99 had the fast ratio only

Junkyard swapable parts

I found this write up some time ago, but now I am curious for some more input from other people.Jeff Daniel’s Jeeps | Message Board | Junkyard Treasures (Parts that'll fit your jeep)
I know that there are some very creative people on here that have come up with some ingenious ideas, so I want to see if any would fit some of my needs (even if I don't know it yet), or even someone elses needs. So come on and share the wealth of knowledge.
