    Does anyone have a site for used parts for semi trucks. I am looking for air tanks for on board air set-up and don't have anything local. The only things I have been able to find require specific info on the trucks before listing any parts.

    I have found that the tanks from trailers work better than the ones from trucks. Are there any trailer repair places around?

    Actually I am in the middle of "truck country" with dealerships, trailer repair places all around but no yards carry semi parts. WTF is with that? :dunno: Anyway I can check around with them to try and get somethings and can probably find something, but I was wanting to look online to get a price range of the things first. Even parts from a bus would be fine for what I am thinking just don't what would be reasonable to pay. Looking for airtank to go in the space under the tool box int the bed and fit the full width of the bed. I guess I could get two if they are smaller. Also thinking of using air brake lines to to route all the lines. I know the brake lines run about $30 new but have no idea what to pay for the tanks.

    Blazinzuk could you chack with the yard by you to get an idea of prices and sizes they have? That would be really helpfull.

    Thanks for the link I had tried ebay for semi truck air tanks and no results. Who would have thought to search for just air tank :doah: I found what I was looking for with the Frirestone tanks on there.
