    not me, but i've heard a few stories about people taking their vehicles down there and getting them parted out for them. But nothing to bring home....

    Hey Les when I was in Mexico I saw a Ford Tempo for $20 along side the road (on further inspection it was missing the engine!)... maybe you can score a deal like that! /forums/images/icons/laugh.gif

    I say try it---im not there but i am on a border town--just make sure you speak spanish or know someone that does. No offence but everytime I go down there for parts I stay in the car and have my friend do all the talking, cause once I step out and they see a redheadded blue eyed american---PRICE JUST WENT UP/forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    BUT

    usually they dont know what they have i.e. Dana 60 so they usually would let it go for about $200

    and if you do find the dana 60 junkyard pick me up a couple/forums/images/icons/wink.gif
