    BTW, call a yard and ask how much a front or rear 10-bolt axle costs. Most yards get $500-600 for one. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    They sure do! It was almost cheaper to convert to 3/4 ton.

    Thats right! Most yards pay very minimal, if not anything, for vehicles, running or not.
    And yes, they turn around and sell everything back out for outrageous prices, most of the time without warranties. /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    I always like to haggle with the seller to get prices down. Even when he won't budge, I simply tell him that I've found another whatever-part at the other yard and want to see if this yard can beat their prices.

    I once got a yard seller to go from $750 for a complete D60 down to $500 even. Told him the gear ratio (3.73) was wrong and how much it was gonna run me to buy new gears, etc. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Here in Gladwin, they would tell you that they will haul them away and not charge you for it /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif. I would say you are defintely better off to try and sell them outright.

    anything that runs and moves regardless of how the body looks you should be able to sell it to someone locally instead of the J.Y. for at least 500 dollars or more.

    I wish I could buy them from you! I can always use parts. If you decide to part them out, let me know. I have a list of stuff from the one with gray interior i need!

    OK, if you do part them out, I could use a Q-jet carb if it is in good working order.

    Thanks,
    Chris
