    <font color="green"> The pick and pull on Monterey road in San Jose usually has about a dozen Chevies in the back, mostly 2wd though. There's apparantly a yard in Moss Landing that has tons of full size Chevy trucks, but I'v enever been there, just heard from a freind. </font color>

    <font color="green"> There's always tons of 3/4 ton SF 14b ff at the yard on Monterey, I've never gone and not seen one there. Fronts are different, because most of the trucks tehre are usually 2wd. </font color>

    Did the sf ever come with a detroit? And would they be worth the effort installing or should i really look for a ff. Talking about your axles got me thinking....

    The pick and pull in Moss Landing is right where all the others are... as you're driving in, it's the last one on the left. They usually don't have squat as far as Chebbies, but last time I was there, they had quite a selection and I scored 2 fenders off the same truck! /forums/images/icons/ooo.gif

    I went to the P&amp;P in Fremont. And it had my 14ff complete for $130.00. I would have got the Front end (outers) but someone got to it before I did. Think about the swap if you are going to do the 8 luger. Talk about 3/4 or 1 Ton O' Sheot to get. /forums/images/icons/mad.gif

    Good luck.
    Don't forget there is a $2.00 fee. (so get your 2 bucks worth if you do go) /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Yep, the last one on the right... All American(?)... is the best one there. They usually have the best selection and that fat guy is a blast to haggle with /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    There's 3 Pick-N-Pulls around (in) Sacramento. We also have a street, Sunrise that is south of HWY 50 known as Recycle Row and tons of junk yards there (one being the Pick-N-Pull). Sucky thing most are you tell the part they pull it for you. There's lots of other wreckers and places in town to get stuff. Get a Sac phone book and check it maybe make a weekend of it because you really could! /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
