    Can anyone recommend some good junkyards in the DFW area for mid-80s Jimmy/Blazer parts?

    I know there were a lot of junk yards all up and down 121 in the Lewisville area. I don't remember any of the names [​IMG]

    yes. How long ago did you live in lewisville? I had lived there since I was born (I'm 22) and moved about 4 years ago (damn! That long already?!)

    The highest concentration that I know of is Jefferson St.....couple up on 78 N of Garland (5 Points)....several in McKinney on E 380...sorta depends on what yer lookin' for...also some down in Pleasant Grove off CF Hawn...I know where there are a couple of parts trucks sittin', although most are of the 85 or so variety ....for our frozen members to the far north, these trucks for the most part are pretty much rust free, so although the runnin' gear may be missing or shot, the bodies are very useable....let me know if I can help...JD

    Stuck?...Hell no..I still got some gas left..

    Yea, I know it's kind of long and it's not all K-5 Stuff but I don't have time to edit it so its copy and paste or nothing. Anyway, I thought people in N. TX might want a fairly compresensive list they could copy and paste to make their own reference list. You can tell who is in you area by area code. As far as who is best I would check @ Grimes Domestic and also @ Troy's. A lot of it depends on what you're looking for. Sheetmetal / vs. mechanical parts: T-Cases, axle assemblies etc.

    Harolds is in Brigg's, Texas..
    Take 183 north.. past cedar park, leander, Seward Junction.. Once you hit Seward Junction.. stay on 183 North towards Lampasas.. at the junction it's aprox 22 miles to Briggs..
    You'll see a huge trailor.. (tractor trailer type) with Harolds sign on it.. big and yellow.. can't miss it.. and you'll see the Junkyard on the right.. just past the trailor..

    I am looking for interior trim parts and stuff like that. Mine is an 85 so the couple you know of may be good for me. I am also looking for the radiator support off an 88-91 as I am replacing my grill/headlight assembly on my 85 with an 88-91 style. Several people have said "Jefferson St". Where is Jefferson St? Is it in Dallas proper? North? South? I am in Plano.

    I use to live in Arlington, there were several huge salvage yards in East Grand Prairie. I found everything from bumpers to new suspension parts and interior parts. Several had a great selection of K5's and Suburbans. The best thing is they are all located along the same road - Jefferson Blvd & Hwy 180 (these roads are run parallel to each other but the most yards are on Jefferson). These are all located East of the Naval Air Station.

    Go South on Loop 12 and exit Jefferson or Hwy 180 and go West. They will be about 1-2 miles down on your left. Can't miss them. I spent hours just wondering around these yards - they are great!

    I would skip the Hwy 78 ones if you are looking for interior parts or anything off a 88-91. They don't have any fuel injected trucks. I was just there a week or two ago, and couldn't find anything...there was a real nice dash for a 73-80 though...I think it was at Discount Auto Salvage, but I don't really remember.
