oddball things you're looking for in the junkyards

Recommended Posts

trying out an idea to spread the word for those of us on the hunt for a rare-ish non-MJ items amongst those of us that frequent the 'yards.  :dunno:  seems like it might work out once in a while. maybe?  :peep:  I'm certainly willing to have an extra list on my phone when I hit the pullaparts :D  

 

stuff I'm currently looking for:

4.10 geared axles from a 4banger gas 03-06 Liberty

factory trailer harness for a 02-04 Superduty (just the rear most bit that has a like foot-long pigtail and the 7pin/4-pin connectors mounted on the bumper)

 

what parts are you guys hoping to locate?

Not that this isnt a good idea....Personally, I check the wanted section before I hit the junkyards and keep the items in mind when online. I've found a few things for people already.

I really want a 28MM sway bar and a good ZJ 12.7 ratio steering box. Both would be a pain to ship is the only bad part...

Idk much about liberty myself and have never see police in liberty before as i know XJ police package have some special parts like sway bar, 120mph cluster, LSD, ECU, high idle, and some other stuff but liberty? :dunno:

I'm always searching for parts.  Recently did a MO-KY-TN-NC-SC-AL-MS-AR-MO trip with stops in almost every state for parts searching.

 

The only downside I see, the last two parts I pulled for people, they backed out.  And that was at my actual cost plus shipping, which tells me they didn't really want the parts in the first place.  Neither were here on CC that I know of.

 

I'm currently searching for a TJ hood in Light Khaki Metallic (code PJC)(no rust or dents) and a Gentex 221 rear view mirror that has the compass/temp, auto dimming, and built in courtesy lights.  Possible donors are late TJ/LJ Wranglers, 2008-2010 Subarus, 1998-2002 Lincoln Continentals (none confirmed though).

I have seen three swaybars on XJs- 24mm, 26mm, and 28mm.  The 28mm were on highly optioned renix era XJs with what appeared to be factory installed trailer hitches.  I carry a cheap plastic digital caliper from Harbor Freight in my junkyard toolkit to measure them.  For me anyway, they are close enough in appearance to be tough to identify.

before your photo I had never even seen a Liberty painted up as a cop car before so I've got no idea if there is anything special about it.  :dunno:

people suck.  that is always a risk. :( 

 

a TJ hood should be way easy to remember.  open top Jeeps are so freakin' rare in the 'yards that I instantly gravitate towards any I see. :D

I think if people maybe utilized the wanted section more that wouldn’t happen. I guess it’s a risk you take grabbing parts, but at some point someone will need them. Thanks though to all of you that do grab those ‘extra’ goodies! I saw it wasn’t for people on CC, because I think the majority of us are decent people when it comes to purchasing parts from one another.

Interesting part.  Planning to adapt to an MJ or replacing one on a Ford?  Do you want/need the vehicle end of the connector?

I will keep my eyes open at my local spots around here and let you know if I come across something.👀

Is this post worthy of a sticky? Thinking it would be ideal for guys looking for non- Comanche items. Just so the wanted section could remain strictly MJ/XJ. The post may get a little cluttered though. Maybe another wanted/ looking for post in the classifieds?

I need the little boot that seals the shifter into the top case of a NV4500.   I believe they're the same Dodge or GM, but my application is GM.

 

Some random company makes them but they don't seem to ship to me and I can't get them from the usual sources.

 

It's the type of thing that would fit in an envelope, so I'll ask for it...  Everything else I want isn't shipped cross border easily. :laugh:

I might have the XJ parts. Is it the same for a 97?

Come on out Pete, you can visit a few yards and get some of the good parts, but you better bring a truck.
