    The crossmembers I have are: 4x4 tranny and T-case crossmembers/2wd tranny crossmembers, 2wd and 4x4 engine mount brackets and crossmembers, and I think I have one 1983 3/4 ton 4x4 frame up there. The rest are '73-'80, but I think the engine crossmembers are the same.

    The full-top I'm going to say isn't perfect, but it's in one piece. I think I have two to choose from. We can probably find someone to deliver it down that way for a little gas money.

    I should have several pairs of 52" 1/2 and 3/4 ton rear springs and 56's too. I know I'm saving a set for Eric. I haven't had a chance to write down a specific "inventory" yet.

    Wiring harnesses are pretty much '73-'80 engine compartment/firewall wiring, front nose clip wiring, etc...

    If you know where Spokane, Wa. is, here is where it's at in relation:
    http://www.mountainexplorers.50megs.com/whats_new.html

    Since I know that no one wants to drive across the state to pick up one or two relatively common free items, I can propose the following-

    We won't be having scrap weekend until April 9-10. The weekend before, if I am able, I will be going down to Portland for the Swap Meet. Meaning, the last weekend of March, I am having a "sorting day" up there.

    Like I said, I don't have time to pull any of this stuff myself, but, if I can afford to fill up a friends tanks and have him go up that weekend, I could have him torch out some parts, and I could bring stuff down to Portland when I go to the swap meet. I'm not trying to make money off any of this stuff, but if I went that route, all I'd ask is maybe a few bucks to pitch in for the gas for the torch and to help on my trip down a little.

    I would like to reserve a set of 1/2 ton 52 & 56 springs. If you are able to pull these and fit them into your Portland trip, I will certainly pay. If you cannot I still would like to procure them in some way....:grin:

    Ok... so I'll compile a list here.

    If I get a chance, I will try and pull the following:

    2 pairs of 52" rear springs

    1 pair of 56" rear springs

    1 engine crossmember off '83 4x4 frame

    1 full-top for '73-'75 K5

    I'll post up what I was able to pull and have ready before going to Portland. I guess for what I haul down, I'll just take fuel money donations.

    For anyone who wants any of these parts, can you just pick them up at the Swap Meet? Or is there somewhere to meet up with you possibly on Thursday, March 31?

    If you are able to pull parts maybe we can meet in a parking lot or a gas station here local before you hit the swap-meet.

    I'm willing to head up there with my torch and tools and pull parts and deliver them. Gonna cost $50-100/person for parts delivered to Portland or Seattle so make a list :grin:

    Allan what weekend are you planning on?

    I'll be making a trip up to start this weekend (March 25-27) and the main scrapping weekend will be April 8-10, the weekend after the swap meet. Thats my goal at least. Every other year I've tried clearing up stuff, I combined too many tasks at once. This year, its all about getting rid of everything.

    Well, this weekend was about worthless. Nice and clear and dry Friday night. Saturday rolls around, and it starts snowing and raining... turning into a soaking rain that still hasn't let up. My help cancelled, and the friend with the torch cancelled.

    The result is that all I got pulled so far is one pair of 52" rear 3/4 ton springs.

    If it's not raining either Tuesday or Wednesday, I might try a last minute trip up again to grab more springs before I leave Wednesday night.

    i could use a top for my 75 if it is at least desent shape mine the bolt on part in the front half is all ripped off. so needless to say i cant bolt it all the way down . and also do you have a harness for a k5? i actually just need the rear portion for the gas tank tail lights and all that. I also need a set of one ton 56 inch spring for my crew cab if you have any.

    I have a set of 1-ton rear 56" springs on an '84 Crew Cab frame (no overloads though).

    I looked at the '73-'75 K5 tops I have this last weekend, and they have some cracking around the back corners, as many do. But I believe all the bolt up areas were ok. I should have some wiring too.

    I am looking for factory fiberglass door caps for 73-75. They are the lower caps that cover the factory cut offs on the door with 2 screws. Let me know if you have some. The aftermarket plastic ones keep breaking when they rub against the rods for my soft top. I have been having a hell of a time finding them in the yards around here.

    And anybody else out there that wants the 75 factory buckets or a 12 bolt rear, I have them here for free as well. Just come and get them.
