04' LJ Tailgate - Where to find Used?

Need a tailgate for my 2004 LJ - located in Houston, TX. Dedicated trail rig so used is fine and color doesn't really matter - would just like to find one that comes with latch, handle, hinges and spare carrier.

Any recs in Houston or general Texas/Gulf Coast area?
Is there a website where you can search salvage yards rather than calling every single one?

Also, been told TJ tailgate is different 97-2002 vs 2003-2006 - but also told it is just the vent and if running a soft top it doesn't matter? Can anyone confirm?

Any help appreciated.

Salvage yards, Facebook, craigslist, pick n pull, dead jeep, etc.

Yep, only difference is the vent on 03+. I would assume it would only matter if you were running a hard top without the vent (97-02).
